Today's #MythologyMonday theme is JUSTICE.
There are several deities in #ancientGreek religion that deal with law, order, and justice. One of them is the King of the Gods himself, #Zeus who delights in thunder. He is the god of law, justice and moral conduct.
Zeus gets the help of #Dike, the daimona or spirit of moral order and fair judgement. She is his daughter by #Themis and both mother and daughter are personifications of justice: Dike of human justice and Themis of divine justice. In poetry Dike is often the attendant of #Zeus.
In reliefs on the archaic Chest of Kypselos, a votive offering at Olympia, Dike throttles Adikia ("injustice") and beats her with a stick.
Her half-brother Ares would likely act in a similar fashion. Despite his impulsive nature, he is also a god that maintains civil order.

The wise, one alone, unwilling and willing to be spoken of only by the name of #Zeus, the name of Life.

- #Heraclitus 113

[Kahn 1979, pp. 267-271]
“With deliberate antimony #Heraclitus here presents his positive conception of the divine ... The #aphorism is unusually dense and puzzling, full of conflicting forces mysteriously under control.”

- Kahn, ‘Art and Thought of #Heraclitus,’ 1979, pp. 267
“... for #Heraclitus as for Aeschylus ‘#etymology’ must be taken literally: an ‘etymos #logos’ is a ‘true statement’ hidden in the form of a name ... the name ‘Zēnos’ affirms that the supreme #deity is also a principle of life, like the ‘everliving fire’ ...”

- Kahn 1979 p. 270

@Imlandris1 Also ich habe nochmal versucht, #Wiedergut zuzuhören, kann aber nicht viel damit anfangen. Wenn Sie viel von ihm gelernt haben, dann können Sie mir vielleicht sagen, (1) was Wiedergut unter 'Dimension' versteht (es gibt viele Dimensionsbegriffe), (2) ob er irgendwo irgendwelche..
@Imlandris1 ..zumindest halbwegs nachprüfbare Messdaten präsentiert (mündlich oder schriftlich), die die von ihm mit Überzeugung behauptete Existenz von 'fünfdimensionalen, und im fünfdimensionalen Bereich agierenden Zwergen mit hohem Wissenspotenzial' auch nur ansatzweise belegen? Z.B. ..
@Imlandris1 ..sagt Herr Wiedergut ab 2h41m19s in folgendes (Transkription von LGcommaI):
»Sicher [!] ist, dass, äh, sie---also dass diese Wesen, die denen sie was, was zu tun haben, irgendwie äh mit dem #Zwergenreich vernetzt sind. Is a irgendwie naheliegend, ne?
