This is pure speculation, but how do you think ancients of the time would feel if they heard any music from today's time (50s to today)? Since electricity wasnt a thing, minus electric guitars which would be acoustic instead. Do you think it would exclusively be a Noble's activity, or would it be common? Would it be accepted, or would it be too radical? What about Classical music?

Just a fun hypothetical question

I'm not aware of any being hung from a pillar. The prophecies I'm aware of

1) Any role he had in the "please oh great Liu Bei, become Emperor we beseech you as do the Heavens" (not an actual quote :wink: )

2) Liu Bei and Liu Shan's names (Bei meant complete and Shan meant to give away) means the Liu had already completed their rule and going to give it to another.

3) Tree within palace falls over so Qiao Zhou wrote upon the tree stump (this may be the one being referred to?) "Multitudinous and great, the time has come, completed and giving away, how can it be restored." Multitudinous and great both referred to the name Cao, the complete and give away from the Liu names, was also a reference to his teacher Du Qiong and Zhou Shu's earlier prophecies

4) I'm going to die Chen Shou, we shall not meet again

ah, yea tree stump!

Eh? wasnt that Du and Zhou's prophecies? which mean Qiao Zhou just simply rewrote the prophecies from his teachers?

I think more Qiao Zhou built on them and argued their prophesy was related to now, Qiao Zhou did credit them and play down the credit but figures in Shu credited Qiao Zhou.

It happens. I only weigh in when there's a topic that interests me. Other than that I'm active in the discord generally yelling about how I hate Sima Yi.
