11. Why does Caesar faint? Why does Cassius say: "No, Caesar hath it now; but you, and I / And honest Casca, we have the falling sickness"? To what is Cassius referring?

Initially the men believe fainting is part of Caesar's "I'm so humble" show. It is then clear that Caesar is having one of his epileptic seizures which was called "falling sickness" at the time.
