    View full lesson:
    Before the creation of humanity, the Greek gods won a great battle against a race of giants called the Titans. Most Titans were destroyed or driven to the eternal hell of Tartarus. But the Titan Prometheus, whose name means foresight, persuaded his brother Epimetheus to fight with him on the side of the Gods. Iseult Gillespie shares the myth of Prometheus.
    Lesson by Iseult Gillespie, directed by Léa Krawczyk.

    The lesson in the two bowls is that its the lower and middle classes who get the real meat of life and the people at the top have no purpose because they have no limitation. So their joy turns to ash in their mouths. But you can have power and meaning if you learn the lessons Blue Collar people do and work for its own sake.

    Yeah peeps: you SEE what the big sky god does to the demiurge (that's a kind of deputy, or subcreator god), when the Foresight guy tries to help those little creatures known as humans, aspire "beyond their station"??
    Now you see why Trickster gods the world over are either dissed - or worshipped, but the stories say that like Prometheus, they met a horrible fate?? 🙄
    Those little humans aren't meant to aspire! Woe to Titans that help them!!
    Well: that's what big daddy sky gods say..

    I love these videos, they are phenomenal! I do feel like I should mention however, it was an eagle that would attack prometheus's liver. The bird was meant to represent Zeus himself in all his anger. There may be different versions, this is just what I've heard.

    I've noticed time an time again, Greek Gods are a bunch of entitled, full of themselves, egoistic pricks who can't stand anything that goes against their beliefs, and will incur harsh punishments on those who fail to follow their ways.
    They are more like demons than Gods
