Studying and reading mythologies requires a very open mind. And what comes to interpreting them, well, I don't even know if that is possible or meant
as such. Considering that they wouldn't just be awesome sagas and myths, that they stand on a reality base of some sort, I find the Greek mythology
to be one of the classiest.
I'm no expert in the field, but as I understand it we start out with Chaos. Chaos is the state before 'creation', before 'division'. From Chaos
comes out Light, Day, Darkness and Night (Aether, Hemera, Erebus and Nyx). These are considered as primordial deities. Light and Day breeds Earth
(Gaia) and Earth creates her surroundings; Stars, Hills and Oceans (Uranus, Ourea and Pontus).
Now we are approaching the point. As a result of interaction between the Earth and the Stars, Cronus is born as the youngest of the first generation
of the Titans. He marries his sister Rhea, who is seen as a mother figure as well. Her name is connected with the word 'rheo' which stands for
'flow' or 'discharge'.
Cronus ends up killing his Father (the Stars) by castrating him. As we know, stars and stardust forms other planets. By castrating (eating) his father
he becomes the King of Gods. I think Cronus is well suited as a black hole. After killing his Father he discharges (breeds with Rhea) more Titans only
to be devoured by him after their birth.
We also know that black holes remember everything they 'eat'. They can spit out every little particle ever gone through the black hole experience.
This is what happens after Gaia gives a little help regarding the birth of Zeus. Cronus is fed a bogus rock instead of Zeus (who might be seen as
electricity) and later on Zeus will overthrow Cronus by cutting his stomach open. At this moment Cronus spits out everyone of his children and is a
I just love a good story and this is what Greek Mythology offers. But could there be a reference in there? Food for thoughts.
