Semiologies.

Olympians...Olympus = mountain.


Hellenic Mythoplacy is represented by the triad Primordial, Titan, and Olympian Ages. see [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Each age corresponds to both cosmic and earthly ages.  
1st Age = Primordial – this Mythical Age corresponds to the period preceding the 100 second mark in the chart above.
In Earth ages it corresponds to the Archean Age on the chart at the bottom.  
All Deities represents these ‘hot periods, of chaos and complexity, where no life is possible. Both the cosmos and the earth, during these periods in their history, are in a state of turmoil and instability. Conditions that does not allow for life to emerge because life requires order; a degree of consistent predictability that gradually emerges from this turmoil.
2nd Age =Titan – this Mythical Age corresponds to the period between ‘100 seconds &100 million years’, when the first known stars emerge.
In earth time it corresponds to the period between the  Paleozoic Age, all the way to the end of the Mesozoic Age, gradually entering into the Cenozoic.
3rd Age = Olympian – the age when man begins to evolve into his present state, corresponding, in cosmic time to ‘4 billion year mark. The cooling down of the cosmos to a state where life can evolve. In earth time, the end of earthly turmoil and a cooling down of the planet, stabilizing conditions.

PostSubject: ZEUS Mon Sep 10, 2018 7:04 am


Thunderbolt
Sceptre
Eagle
Bull
Oak Tree
The Aegis, a shield


ΔΙΑΣ
ΔΙΑ = divide, through, way. ΔΥΟ = two, dual.
The way through. Passage.
ΖΕΥΣ – ΔΕΥΣ: father. ΖΕΥΓΩ = connect, join.
*originally worshipped as the god of day and light *Djeus = day *what both connects and divides – light *electromagnetism – attraction/repulsion force: (inter)action, intercourse
.

Creator of life, as the force that attracts and repels - separates and unites.
Seeding energy from above, the beyond, the unknown chaos. The earth is impregnated.
The more dynamic (inter)activity, morphing the less dynamic (inter)activity of matter, liquefying it and permitting it to birth new patterns.

Dowden, Ken wrote:
And Zeus son of Kronos, father of gods and men, is to be understood as the only-begotten son of God: as he is responsible for life {zoe} he is called ‘Zeus’. But as he is the son of God, he is called ‘son of Kronos’, because we should think of Kronos as that pure mind {koros nous} which we can neither see nor grasp, which had no origin . . .  but Kronides, the son of this one, consubstantial and sharing his throne, and seated above those gods who are as a conceit called his sons, judging all humanity and for this reason called father of men and gods.

Zeus is a metaphor for the natural force of electromagnetism.


Ζ=sound of energy, vibration  ΕΥ=good, proper, as it ought to be.
Allusion to order.

ΑΔΗΣ
ΑΙΔΗΣ = common ground, place where we communicate all together; invisible.
Α= negation of what follows – ΔΗΣ= divisions, dualities.
God of the realm where all multiplicity is negated, and all is merged.


*what Zeus unites and separates, Hades casts asunder - forgetting what was, merging in unconscious (inter)activity *chaos is returned to Order  

Symbol of the state of merger, where awareness of divisions, of distinctions, is negated.


Multiplicity merges in vague synthesis. The negation of what Zeus has produced, has separated, divided.


Tendency towards absolute – uniformity of order/chaos.

Uncontrolled rage. Unfocused, irrational, primal agon.


Force of flowing towards weakness – towards path-of-least-resistance, challenging/testing all resistance; causing friction.

Hearth & Fire

ΕΣΤΙΑ
*fire, altar, home
ΑΣΤΕΡΑΣ=star ΕΖΟΜΑΙ=sit
*settling down, claiming of space/time *fire as the center of a home *place of preparing and of consuming food, injecting nutrition, energy

Body [phenomenon] – nervous system [heart/soul/code/transmission/translation] – Mind [noumenon]


Fire as the cleansing, opening of space, illuminating darkness, to claim space/time – ownership.


Place where one prepares and consumes energy – replenishment in accordance with traditions. Consuming past to appropriate energies.

*through a division, a way through one is cast into a sea, turmoil *liquidity between two solids, movement, a mediating state from & towards


Alluding to the existent, as Flux.


Thrown into a state between and towards.

PostSubject: Artemis Fri Sep 21, 2018 8:29 am



Bow & Arrows
Stags
Hunting Dog
Moon


ΑΡΤΕΜΙΣ
Α=negation of what follows – ΡΕΩ=flow
ΑΡ=curse – ΑΡΑ=therefore, it follows logically from the previous – ΤΕΜΝΩ=cut into pieces
ΑΡΤΟΣ= bread, food, the process of needing and baking, to produce, to connect, mix
*process of synthesis and a separation, a cutting away of flow *process of speciation *organization, synthesis of disparate energies; restriction to possibility
Artemis is to Apollo what Ares is to Athena – representation of the cultivated with the impulsive and the undifferentiated with the differentiated.
Artemis is the reflective moon of Apollo’s innate energies.
She conceals, hinting at it in her cool faintness, what he reveals with bright, hot, light.


Symbol of the unconscious natural processes that make life possible.  


Contrasting to Apollo’s revealing energies, Artemis obscures and synthesized with her cooling, vagueness, recombining what he has separated, remixing with ambiguity what he has clearly and brutally, distinguished.
