There was this guy who had a legion of mental problems. Legion is a term indicating about 2000. Bound in chains to keep him under control, he lived in the tombs outside of town.
He had quite a problem, but it wasn’t what you might think. His problem involved a group of swine-herders working nearby. In this story swine-herder is simply another name for symptom-watcher, and they were good at their job! They watched this man rage and cry and cut himself while they herded swine in the neighborhood. They had seen all his 2000 symptoms over the years. They were convinced this man was a mess - a complicated case. They were afraid of both him and his problems. It made sense that such a complicated case would require a complicated solution, right?
