Mitochondrion - Infernal Weapons Summons

I can love, love with a full heart, and let the most consuming glow of passion burn in my heart, without taking the beloved one for anything else than the nourishment of my passion, on which it ever refreshes itself anew. All my care for him applies only to the object of my love, only to him whom my love requires, only to him, the ‘warmly loved.’ How indifferent would he be to me without this - my love! I feed only my love with him, I utilize him for this only: I enjoy him.
Max Stirner (The Ego and Its Own)

Swiss and Landsknecht soldiers engage in the exceptionally-fierce hand to hand combat known as “bad war.” The long spear shafts are their pikes, which became awkward to handle if the push of pike became too disorganized. In that case, halberds and swords became the deadliest weapons. Engraving by Hans Holbein the Younger. Albertina, Vienna.
