It's been hard lately not to be reminded of Steve Jobs . Full page iPhone5 advertisements pop up with every new Safari window, and the new feature drama "Jobs" was just released in August. The film has star-power Ashton Kutcher  playing the title role of a slightly taller, slightly handsomer version of the late Steve Jobs. The trailer alone sets the tone for potential movie-goers, who then know to expect a very clearly Jobs-sympathetic and Jobs-as-hero biopic with a tearful, if not happy, ending.

Steve was and is my biggest hero i have, he inspired me to become a enthusiast for computers and i love his products. He is the greatest man I have ever seen and the greatest business man there ever was. My only goal in life is to become like him.He will be missed.

He was an inspirational leader, a gutsy businessman, a risk taker and a believer. I like that in a person and he had it in spades.

The Imperial cult of ancient Rome identified emperors and some members of their families with the divinely sanctioned authority ( auctoritas ) of the Roman State . Its framework was formulated during the early Principate of Augustus , and was rapidly established throughout the Empire and its provinces , with marked local variations in its reception and expression.

Augustus's reforms transformed Rome's Republican system of government to a de facto monarchy, couched in traditional Roman practices and Republican values. The princeps (later known as Emperor) was expected to balance the interests of the Roman military , Senate and people , and to maintain peace, security and prosperity throughout an ethnically diverse empire. The official offer of cultus to a living emperor acknowledged his office and rule as divinely approved and constitutional: his Principate should therefore demonstrate pious respect for traditional Republican deities and mores .

A prominent clan might claim divine influence and quasi-divine honors for its leader. Death masks ( imagines ) were made for all notable Romans and were displayed in the atria of their houses; they were used to represent their ghostly presence at family funerals. The mask of Scipio Africanus , Cornelia's father and victor over Hannibal , was stored in the temple of Jupiter; his epitaph (by Ennius ) said that he had ascended to Heaven. [10] A tradition arose in the centuries after his death that Africanus had been inspired by prophetic dreams, and was himself the son of Jupiter. [11]

The idea of Genius is an important but too little studied aspect of Western history; it is an important pagan concept which still governs our thinking. We can begin to understand what genius means if we recognize that it is basically the same word as the Arabic jinn or genie . -lhe word genius comes from the Latin, and the idea is Roman, but it is hard to distinguish it at times from the Arabic idea, because the two are so similar.

The idea of genius comes out of pagan animism and ancestor worship. The genius of a family, house, group, or state was the protecting, guiding, inspiring supernatural spirit which took care of it and was also the object of its worship. All good Romans therefore worshipped "the genius of Rome." "The genius of Rome" was the divine power protecting Rome, the Roman mission, Rome itself ("divine Rome"), and its heroic leaders and emperors. Godlike men were believed to receive from the gods a special destiny above that of ordinary mortals. These men became the Lares or genius for their time.

But this was not all. In paganism, the genius had been essentially a political figure in the developed form of the idea of genius. The medieval artisan was essentially related to the faith, and his greatest work was in the church. After the Renaissance, the artist associated himself increasingly with the state. The church continued to be a great patron of art, and, in the following eras, such creations as baroque church art certainly represented very great outlays of money, but artists found their chief voice and their best self-expression in works done for the royalty and the nobility, for the state. The neo-pagan genius and hero were working together.
