Iím proud to present to you Helios 43, this edition is jammed packed with content including a return of Helios Stalwart Lord Rahl, former editor n chief The Sundance Kid and a report from the Circus Maximus courtesy of Stalins Ghost.
Also I would like to welcome onboard new writers Boeing who is a current member of the Coliseum de Civitate and site award winner Яome kb8. Also I would like to give a big thank you to Y2day who had produced some new banners for the Helios, he is much better artist then I am so checkout his work for the Thema Diva in this issue and if we ever get a VV writer you can check that out as well.
Now then to start the balling rolling Stalins Ghost updates us with the goings on in the Circus Maximus.
Thank your for that Comrade Stalin. Now just in case anyone reading this doesnít know the new Aliens Vs Predator game is expected to be released in February 2010.
Now from the world of video games to world to of politics, Helios debutante Яome kb8 gives us a run down of the latest plots, conspiracy theories, who Russia is upsetting and just about everything else you can think of.
Kb8 leaves the perhaps the most extreme POV til last ĎÖ..put them against the wall in front of the firing squad to serve as an exampleí. Iíll say one thing for the general content on the mudpit, it takes no prisoners.
Now then for my favourite part of the Helios I personally present to you the Basement! So far no new DX11 cards yet however an unconfirmed launch date of ĎSeptemberí is the most likely time.
Well I canít compete with Soulghastís coverage of the Helios but there are still a few things in there that you can all learn from. Remember, summer = heat, heat = bad for your PC.
Now then we have a marathon of editorials to get through, well 4 to be precise. The Black Prince brings another anciadote of life a gay, Star Trek fan Lord Rahl makes his return alongside The Sundance Kid and we have a new editorial from Boeing (can I call you 747?)
Once again I find myself agreeing with just about everything The Black Prince has to say, I have to admit I didnít know about the incident in the Tel Aviv night club that sounds truly horrific lets just hope who ever committed those acts will not escape justice.
The Helios continues on below!

If the stench of real world politics has left you feeling dirty then perhaps you should check out Soulghastís Curia round up. Now when it comes to discussion and behaviour the Curia is an Oasis of politics compared to real life and the odd thing about it is that you can only find it on a gaming website. I find that very ironic considering how bad some of the posting is on other gaming sites which tend to have no shortage of internet slang, bah, riff-raff!
Once again another monster review of the The Curia, well done Soulghasts. Now if everyone made their report as long Soulghastís the Helios would be spreads over 10 posts!
If the affairs of the community aren't enough to satisfy your appetite for community news then perhaps Rebal6666 can fill that hole with his Thema Diva report.
Very nice Rebal, do you want to know some ramdom facts about me? I'm underpaid, over worked, I hate my job, no girl friend, I own a flat I can't afford to live in (yet) and this month it's bills, bills and bills. Car tax is due, car service has to be done, MOT, insurnace £££'s. Spending money on staff I don't really care makes me very angry.
Now I've got that of my chest prehaps a glance at our page 3 model will cheer me up, now before Iíve only been using film starts however this time Iíve ventured into the world sport, tennis to be exact. Enjoy.
That's all for this edition, take care.

Questions are not necessarily there to be answered, but possibly there to inspire thinking.
Nullius addictus iurare in verba magistri, - quo me cumque rapit tempestas, deferor hospes.
If mind is common to us, then also the reason, whereby we are reasoning beings, is common. If this be so, then also the reason which enjoins what is to be done or left undone is common. If this be so, law also is common; if this be so, we are citizens; if this be so, we are partakers in one constitution; if this be so, the Universe is a kind of commonwealth.
Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.
There is no chaos in the world, only complexity.
Knowledge of the complex is wisdom.
From wisdom of the world comes wisdom of the self.
Mastery of the self is mastery of the world. Loss of the self is the source of suffering.
Suffering is a choice, and we can refuse it.
It is in our power to create the world, or destroy it.
Homo homini lupus est. Homo sacra res homini.
When deeds speak, words are nothing.
Human history is a litany of blood, shed over different ideals of rulership and afterlife
Sol lucet omnibus.
You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.
Neither should a ship rely on one small anchor, nor should life rest on a single hope.
The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.
Ο Νούς νοεί τον εαυτόν του ως κράτιστος και η νόησή του είναι της νοήσεως νόησις.
'Nothing is true, everything is permitted.' is merely an observation of the nature of reality. To say that nothing is true, is to realize that the foundations of society are fragile, and that we must be the shepherds of our own civilization. To say that everything is permitted, is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious or tragic.
