Peter's question to Hermes


Right after Hermes tells Peter never to look for him again, He says "Wait Who taught you this, and where does the knowledge come from.?" For Myself I would say the knowledge comes from aincent Greece or Rome. Does anyone agree or disagree?

The answer is in the movie itself, when Peter confronts the man behind the murder of Gisela Martins. HE was the man who taught Hermes.

As for the Romans and Greeks, I'm sure their forebearers learned the art of knive fighting from earlier peoples who are not recorded in any annals or tablets.

Humans have been around for thousands of years, so it stands to reason that no ideas are actually that original, even for the classical Greeks and Empirical Romans.
