Poseidon and Medusa

🌊 — 我们的爱不过是悲剧的化身

𝚗𝚘𝚜𝚝𝚎𝚛 𝚊𝚖𝚘𝚛 𝚗𝚒𝚑𝚒𝚕 𝚎𝚜𝚝, 𝚜𝚎𝚍 𝚏𝚘𝚛𝚖𝚊𝚖 𝚝𝚛𝚊𝚐𝚘𝚎𝚍𝚒𝚊 xxx ᴀᴍᴀᴠɪ alternative universe featuring poseidon and medusa of greek mythology.

ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ


ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ


` Why do you, God of the Seven Seas regards humanity as nothing but filth when you used to revere one as both your friend and lover even when the heavens forbid? Do you truly loathe the essence of humanity or— did you think that erasing the traces of her race would make you forget of what has occurred? O, Zeus Enalios, would you enlighten the mind of this lost one? ʼ

ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ


Poseidon just looked at the man smugly and replied, “A foolish question. I do not need any reason to eliminate those who repulsed me albeit, ah! Of course, it would be my greatest pleasure to erase the race who shackled Medusa unto their rules—rendering her powerless against their man-made beliefs.”

The tale of the unfortunate Gorgon

Sisters is not a secret to man. She who was defiled by one of the Olympian Gods in the temple of Athena is a tale recounted thousands of times. But in reality, the event was twisted in an attempt to spite the High God, Poseidon in the eyes of humanity and he, the perpetrator succeeded in doing just to please the Goddess Athena.


𝐛𝐮𝐭 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐝𝐢𝐝 𝐢𝐭 𝒄𝐨𝐬𝐭?



None. It brought them no harm. Albeit its also the cause of the severance of Poseidon’s endless compassion towards man. Medusa’s defilement and humanity’s twisted mind gave birth to a calm hatred in his heart. He who blesses the coastal cities and pitied men more than anyone turned his back on them just because of a sole woman.


𝐛𝐮𝐭 𝐝𝐢𝐝 𝐡𝐞 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝒗𝐢𝐨𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐡𝐞𝐫?


Preposterous! Why would he, Poseidon who knew of the sorrows of the women whom his brother had violated do the same thing? Poseidon is not a licentious immortal like Zeus. He’s a man of decorum and he wouldn’t do such demeaning acts towards someone innocent. And in the first place, Medusa was his friend—almost lover. If only she wasn’t turned into such hideous creature, she would’ve led a blissful life beside him. It would’ve happen but unfortunately, Medusa is chained down by the rules concocted by man.

  • This is an alternative universe. The writer knows the real event regarding poseidon and medusa. But I tweaked it a bit to suit my taste.

Perspective

“Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot.

Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.

It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.”

Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space

The majority of scientists now agree that the anthropogenic signal in the globally rising temperatures is discernible from normal background variation. This is an organic cotton T-shirt design based on a Teemill base image highlighting that fact. Some of our Scientist and Philosopher T-shirts carry messages that are meant to inform as we need to get this fact across that we are going to have to…

Unseen


The mass of Humanity still seem to dispel the truth of other life in our galaxy.
Part of this is based on the belief that they cannot see them…the 3D linear thinking mind tends to need to see something as proof of residence .. yet almost everyone believes in magnetism ,gravity..both of which are unseen.
The biggest unseen thing of all is Love💕..lol..nobody can actually see love, yet everybody…

Stifling the Slip


There are times you need to slow down and recognize your triggers.

Question your perceptions

What challenges challenge you?

Identifying slippery slopes sooner can mitigate the regrets later.

I was challenged this morning twice.

Once with fearOnce with pride

I am overcoming both

Trying not to stumble.

Grumble grumble….

Graveyard


That tenuous line between cognizance and sleep,
It’s a dangerous time for me,
When the sun no longer has my back,
And no valiant comrade can aid me,
The ghouls in my head stir,
Buried there by my own hand,
Silence is the loudest sound,
When the skeletons start to rise,
Dead hopes,
Spectral memories,
Wailing for my attention,
My skull becomes an echo chamber of a cemetery,
It becomes a deafening…

lost in the woods

i was found by grim reaper

his carriage stopped infront of me

he gave me a ride to the oblivion


war will tear humanity apart he says

but in me it has already started

he cannot take me to the coast of souls

for it is not my time yet

his eyes fell down to my red satin dress

he pushed me out of death

Others would say that the world is so cruel… but for me, it’s the people who are cruel. The people are so scary, sometimes they/we do not fear someting or someone. We do things that satisfies ourselves without thinking the others. However, I still believe to humanity, to kindness, and I think you should too…

Wie gut ist der Mensch ?

Ob wir Menschen “gut” sind ist eine Frage, die sich wahrscheinlich alle schon mal gestellt haben ohne aber genauer darauf einzugehen. Deswegen werde ich meine Ansicht dazu darstellen.


“Der Mensch ist in seinem Wesen gut.”

Ich gehe grundsätzlich davon aus, dass es keine von Geburt aus bösen Menschen ( oder andere Lebewesen) gibt, sondern das ungutes Verhalten genauso wie alle Werte erst mit der Zeit erlernt wird.

So gab es Studien zur Hilfsbereitschaft von Kleinkindern um sich mit genau dieser Frage zu beschäftigen. Kurz gesagt war das Ergebnis, dass die Kinder einem Erwachsenen immer halfen, wenn er dies anscheinend brauchte , wie zum Beispiel beim Aufgeben eines Holzklotzes. Sie halfen auch dann, wenn sie zuvor keine Belohnung erhielten oder ihnen keine in Aussicht gestellt wurde und handelten somit selbstlos.

Diese Selbstlosigkeit oder “Altruismus” wird dem Eigennutz “ Egoismus” entgegen gestellt und wurde schon von Charles Darwin anhand von Höhlenmenschen thematisiert.

Darwin stellte die Theorie auf, das der Altruismus ein wichtiger Bestandteil der menschlichen Evolution war und ist. Man konnte damals zusammenarbeiten um Gebiete zu sichern, Nahrung zu besorgen und sich gegen wilde Tiere wehren. Die Gruppe bot also Schutz und die gegenseitige Hilfe stärkte diese. Ein einzelner Höhlenmensch der nur an sich dachte hatte somit eine viel niedrigere bis gar keine Überlebenschance. Auch heute noch ist der Mensch größtenteils von der Gruppe abhängig, ob diese nun aus Familie, Freunden oder einer ganzen Stadt besteht, allerdings ist die Bindung in kleineren Gruppen ( wie Familien ) natürlich stärker.

Danach müssten wir also tatsächlich von Natur aus, wenn auch nur zum Zweck des Überlebens, “gut” sein, da Darwin allerdings eher das soziale Verhalten untereinander thematisiert, kann sich die Aussage auch nur auf diesen Bereich beziehen.

Ich würde dem oben genannten Zitat deswegen nicht komplett zustimmen, da wir in anderen Bereichen wiederum egoistisch sind. Vorallem wenn es darum geht die Erde mit anderen Spezies zu teilen und nicht nur auf uns Menschen zu achten. Allerdings spielt hierbei wieder der Erziehungs-Aspekt eine sehr starke Rolle, weswegen ich allgemein also sagen würde : Der Mensch ist in seinem Wesen nicht schlecht.


Was macht einen guten Menschen aus ?

Nach der Frage ob der Mensch nun eigentlich “gut” ist, stellt sich natürlich die Frage, was einen guten Menschen überhaupt aus macht. Eindeutig kann man Diese auch nicht beantworten, weil jeder dazu seine eigenen Ansichten und Erfahrungen hat.

Ich habe auch keine eindeutige Deffinition und würde somit ganz allgemein sagen : ein guter Mensch ist jemand der nichts und niemandem absichtlich Schaden zufügt.





Da wir nun auch über gute Werte philosophiert haben, kommt zum Schluss noch ein schönes Zitat, welches an die Märchen erinnert die uns als Kinder vielleicht ein paar schöne Ansichten vermittelt haben 😊:

Vielleicht sind alle Drachen unseres Lebens Prinzessinnen, die nur darauf warten uns einmal schön und mutig zu sehen. Vielleicht ist alles Schreckliche im Grunde das Hilflose, das von uns Hilfe will.

- Reiner Maria Rilke
