Sons of Iapetus

Dootzkie Monday, March 7, 2011
Someone once said that there are two kinds of people in this world. Those that separate people into groups and those that do not.

Personally, I use a lot of "archetypes" on a lot of planes of observation when looking at a person, but one of the most important distinctions I make is the Sons of Iapetus.
Epimetheus, Menoetius and Atlas.
-Prometheus, the one that thinks ahead, the creator of humanity and it's greatest benefactor. He is associated with people that can bring new fire into our civilization and lives. People I consider with him are those with the ability to help us achieve quantum leaps. From scientists to a poet, painter, teacher of spirituality or ethics. People that use the Spark in them for the greater good.
-Epimetheus, the one that thinks after, who runs forward while looking backward. Reminds you of anyone. Actually it reminds you of almost everyone you might know and even your self in some situations.
-Menoetius, the one that makes rash actions. Actions fulled by anger and rage. Again, remind you of someone...? Exactly. We all have these moments, but some lead lives dominated by this principle.
-Atlas, the one that endures. In my view, he represents the strength that allows everyone else to strive for their own wishes. He is the one that enables the Prometheus to have a plane in which humans can be created and given gifts. In our own time, Atlas is the tide that needs to disperse the veil of the self-supporting status quo and allow the bright light of the fire that the Prometheus will bring.

Desirable thing to happen is the following. Atlas needs to ascend and raise the heavens so that Prometheus can rise.

Tell me, which one makes the larger part of you?
