The accretion of legendary, in a War context.

Even well documented events (cf The Book of the War) can become rapidly misremembered, misconstrued, elaborated, or distorted in the retelling.  One such distortion is at the root of the so-called Prophesy of Seven.

Once the Seven Prophesied Heads have spoken, the story goes the war will end.  The first - it is implied - is the head of the president involved in the Declaration, however this is clearly UNTRUE.

While severed the head was returned with a message in its mouth, it DID NOT SPEAK.


From "The Book of the Peace"
