The quest for active living and physical exercise in its various expressions is a remake of “mens sana in corpore sano.” The search for esoteric explanations to everything around us is an updated version of oracles, and curiosity about the alien beliefs brings us back to the Roman interest by foreign deities. While blooming myths and fanciful explanations among the people which is more or less educated. Bertrand Russell said it was easier to convince people of the absurd ideas that persuade reasonable concepts.
