back in time
More than a hundred years before the era of Alexander the Great
in an area called Frigia
(Asia Minor, modern Turkey) There was a man named Gordius.
Poor rural people
In the forest far from the city
One day Gordius and his wife
Drive in, intending to sell in the city.
As soon as the wagon passed through the city gate
It's a big deal.
The wagon was intercepted to a halt.
Not to mention crops.
Of course, there is no way to continue selling.
But he didn't have to worry about it anymore.
Because the people who stopped him
a person from the royal court
This city has long been prophesied.
There will be people sitting in vehicles
Leading by oxen, and that man was the great king.
that they've been waiting for
Gordius is now king.
Thank you God Sebasios
which he respects a lot
He brought the wagon of good fortune to offer.
Tie the wagon with a special rope.
with intricate knots attached to the temple pillars
People who know stories
Anyone who untie the knot
This is called the Gordian knot.
There will be great fortune
Not just an ordinary king
but will be the ruler of Asia

thought for a moment
The rule that was later believed to be "fixed" when it was said that according to the rules, it still couldn't be solved.
He chose a method outside the rules.
He drew his own knife.
and then the teeth snapped down
The Gordian knot that no one can unravel, over a hundred years, has been possible, torn in two before my very eyes.
And then King Alexander continued his army.
Attacked almost all over Asia.
Until India...the story is as predicted.
The one who defeated the Gordian Knot
King of Asia
This story can be thought of from many angles.
Some philosophers say
Must start with destruction first.
Another bureau from India said that
Every kind of destruction comes after Creation.
No matter what the philosopher thinks
The story of Alexander cutting the Gordian knot
It has become an idiom that means solving or dealing with difficult problems.
In a fast, reckless, violent way.
Some thinkers say
