Constantine II, the 60th Roman Emperor, reigned from from 337 to 340. He was co-emperor alongside his brothers Constantius II and Constans in an empire again divided into sections, one for each brother.

Constans then claimed the lands previously ruled by Constantine I.
Machine elves (also known as fractal elves, self-transforming machine elves) is a term coined by the late ethnobotanist, writer and philosopher Terence McKenna to describe the apparent entities (described as "elves") that have been reported by users of dimethyltryptamine. References to such encounters can be found in many cultures ranging from shamanic traditions of native Americans to indigenous Australians and African tribes, as well as among western users of these substances.
