Legend behind the Gordian Knot is the man who could untie the knot was destined to rule the entire world
Alexander the Great simply slashed the knot and unraveled it
His plan was to rule the world and unite all the different cultures under a single ruler.
- The way he was going to do this was spread the Greek culture and ideas, make everything and everyone "Greek"
- make himself a single god and inspire "Loyalty".
- but he was going to respect the people he conquered, adopt the cultures he conquered
