Alexander does go to extreme opposites but they are born out of conflict. For instance he has been a rebel in his last three incarnations that I know of, not a conqueror. He has lived with the shoe on the other foot. I ask you...what spiritual reason would a mind such as Alexanders have to spend an anonymous life besides deciding not to fight? It's a talent for war that brought him back to it again and again. It's that feeling of destiny that justified his behaviour for himself because he thought he was being propelled by the Gods or God or whatever iteration he believed throughout his incarnations. It wasn't until he realised that destiny wasn't enough that he was able to make the right decision and stop engaging in war. Humanistic ideals hit him with a different morality, one in which he could envisage the evil which he would help to create. Alexander has learned at his own pace. How can anyone say whether it was too slow or too fast in spiritual terms? I don't have all the answers anymore than you do, all I know is that Alexanders current incarnation has been morally challenged and taken to task for his thinking. He probably deserves it after all the mayhem he has caused. History calls him a genius but I would call him an ***** for not being aware of his own ego.
