Prometheus circa 2012

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prometheus

In Greek mythology, Prometheus (Ancient Greek: Προμηθεύς, “Forethinker”) is a Titan, the son of Iapetus and Themis, and brother to Atlas,Epimetheus and Menoetius. He was a champion of mankind, known for his wily intelligence, who stole fire from Zeus and gave it to mortals.Zeus then punished him for his crime by having him bound to a rock while a great eagle ate his liver every day only to have it grow back to be eaten again the next day. His myth has been treated by a number of ancient sources, in which Prometheus is credited with – or blamed for – playing a pivotal role in the early history of mankind. During the Greek War of Independence, Prometheus became a figure of hope and inspiration for Greek revolutionaries and their philhellene supporters.

  1. That which we do not understand we rationalize by myth and fantasy. It was the hallmark of ancient man, AS WELL AS THE Greeks and the Romans. Modern day man is no different. We struggle in a sureal world where reality is fantasy and we seek to live in fantasy land.
