Are you saying Christina that these men have left behind them the
refulgence of demi-gods because of good schooling. That may be right
to an extent, but you can be certain that they have been inspired by
the will of their Higher selves.
In the old days highly gifted miracles men were often referred to as
"God - men." In this case the word "God - man" means "Logos - man"
Take a look at the text in the book: Philostratus - The Life of
Apollonius of Tyana - Vol. I Harvard University Press - Page - 269
There one of the Adepts says: " We consider ourselves to be Gods"
And His words stunned Apollonius.!

They are created by schools as gods.That will not say they are gods.
They have had more of the godpower in themselves than normal people,
that is the only difference.
