Signification Alea Jacta Est 01.06.2008 11:07:41 (permalink)
l s'agit, à l'origine, d'un dénommé Aléa qui jacta à l'est en son temps.
Évidemment, pour trouver un gars qui s'appelle Aléa et qui en plus parle tout seul face au vent vers l'est dans le fin fond du terroir berrichon au milieu d'un groupe d'autruches psychopathes unijambistes, il y a quand même une certaine part de hasard même si on laisse de coté le terroir berrichon et les autruches.

Cette formule fut détournée de son sens littéral premier par ces copieurs de romains qui ont, n'en doutons pas, spécialement adapté leur langage à cet expression paysanne pour leurs besoins personnels ce qui donne après traduction "le sort en est jeté" (on retrouve bien la notion de hasard).
Rendons à Aléa ce qui est à Aléa.

Cet empire romain qui s'octroie ce qu'il veut comme il veut et surtout sans tenir compte de l'avis des autres, ça m'en rappelle un autre plus récent...

    [edit] Meaning and form The phrase is still used today to mean that events have passed a point of no return, that something inevitable will happen, i.e., he cannot take back what he has done, much like the gambler who has already thrown the die. Caesar was said to have borrowed the phrase from Menander, his favorite Greek writer of comedy. Plutarch reports that these words were said in Greek:
    Ἑλληνιστὶ πρὸς τοὺς παρόντας ἐκβοήσας, "Ἀνερρίφθω κύβος," [anerriphtho kybos] διεβίβαζε τὸν στρατόν.

    He [Caesar] declared in Greek with loud voice to those who were present 'Let the die be cast' and led the army across.
    – Plutarch, 'Life of Pompey, Ch. 60'
    In another context, "iacta est" could be translated as "was cast", i.e., as a "simple past." It is generally assumed, e.g. by Shakespeare, that Caesar here meant "The die has been cast" i.e., "The die is now cast" and not "The die was cast."
    According to Lewis and Short[1], the phrase used was a third person passive future perfect imperative, Jacta alea esto, "Let the die be cast!", or "Let the game be ventured!"

    [edit] References in popular culture
    • In Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, Dr. Frankenstein says "The die is cast; I have consented to return if we are not destroyed."
    • In the 1972 film Roma, at the very beginning, while crossing the Rubicon heading to Rome, the teacher screams to his students, "alea iacta est".
    • In each edition of the enormously popular French comic book Asterix, once Asterix sinks the pirates' ship, the first mate says to the captain, "Alea jacta est."
    • In the television series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, there is an episode by this very name, instead referencing the crossing of a joint Cardassian-Romulan fleet entering the Gamma Quadrant.
    • Alea Iacta Est is the password of Alpha Omega Theta Fraternity Inc, chosen by the fraternity's founder John Stefano in 1946. "Alea Iacta Est, The Die is Cast, Once it's Started it Can Never End." link AlphaOmegaTheta.com
    • In Election Day--Season 4, Episode 7 of The West Wing--as Will Bailey runs around wildly trying to ensure a win for his dead candidate, Horton Wilder, in the 47th congressional district of California on election day, Elsie Snuffin says to him, "The die has been cast, big brother. You're making everyone crazy." Will responds, "There's a moment after you cast the die but before it hits the table. Breathe wrong and you'll change the way it lands."
    • The phrase is displayed on one of the opening screens to the Playstation puzzle game Devil Dice.
    • "Alea jacta est" is the subject of a classroom lecture in the 2002 film, The Emperor's Club.
    • In the 2003 film Battle Royale II: Requiem, "Jacta Alea Est" is the slogan for the terrorist organisation Wild Seven, led by Shuya Nanahara.
    • In MC Solaar's 2007 song "Carpe Diem" as part of the chorus, "Le temps passe, | Alea Jacta Est | Qu'on vienne de Budapest ou de gare de l'Est | Alors Carpe Diem."
    • Alea Jacta Est is the name of a Grade 5 ice climb near La Grave in the French Alps. It is climbed by Joe Simpson in his book The Beckoning Silence.
