The Hellenistic Traditions of Ancient Greece
encompassed a very large variety of Topics.
Cultural aspects and Customs, Arts, Humanities, Sciences,
Philosophies, Music, Crafts, Engineering and Invention.
More also. All indeed and more representing
the very many aspects of a growing Civilisation. A Civilisation
emerging after that Death of Alexandria the Great.
So called. So
after. That. And that not so great,..
subsequent breakup of that Empire.
Of Greatness. No more… ish.
Been there. Done that.
Circa ish… 300 B.C.
The Society emerging therein became more open assuming
a somewhat Cosmopolitan flavor and base. With a Political and Peoples
presence that permeated and influenced Lands beyond. Around
as well. Well as these becoming a part of the heartlands of
Greece. Of Yore. A
subtle undercurrent that carried along a sense of importance
within History that encouraged the
gathering of Knowledge.
Times and Places of Learning.
As these Times and Places went by. In spite
of Wars and Battles oft flourishing here and there. There
was along the Ways.
A City that so began to attract many Scholars
due to thus reputable Learning Institutions within.
Was and is known as Alexandria. The City. Thereof.
A Leading Light.
Nomen in honor of that Great One
named afore mentioned as Alex. Herein. Above. Below also.
Founded in 330 B.C. ish. A Port City.
In Northern Egypt. On the Mediterranean Sea.
The Famed Pharos Light-house kept Night Harbors
safe to see. The Sea.
A leading light for the pursuit of Knowledge. Also. The
City of Alexandria did so become. So
Circa 0 A.D. onwards therein… ish.
Early forms of such Societal, Educational and Cultural
Institutions as Museums,
Libraries, Archives and Universities. Unified. Therein. The
Alexandria had them All.
Even a hero.
Called Hero that is.
Hero… is his name.
Hero. So Named.
His Engines as well.
Ancient thereof. Of and any
regular Readers of Our World Legends will recall
that much Ancient Tech. is Elemental. Elemental is that
which so uses Powers inherent within Fire, Water, Air, Minerals
and so on. On the verge of Alchemical at times in deed.
Yet Natural. Powers.
Going through the associated Our World Legends. One
realises the many Ideas and Inventions. Of Yore. All
seemingly utilise such. Or a Variation. Such
as Wind, Gravity, Water Pressure, Steam Pressure, Heat
and Expansion and so forth. This Power then made
to Work via Levers, Springs, Domino Effect,
Swing-Arms, Weights and so on. On
to produce an effect. Effects of such
a studious and researched Education were. That
Study Times. All
Ἥρων ὁ Ἀλεξανδρεύς… Hero of Alexandria (: Greek Ancient thereof)
was a very such and so serious Student (circa 10-70 A.D.). Thereof.
Delving into such as the Mathematics, the Sciences, Engineering and Invention.
A real… hero it seems within All these. These whereby and soon became.
All rather… elementary to such Hero.
Debates, Discourses too, at the so then eminent
Library of Alexandria followed. Following such and then
Lecturing thus on many aspects of his studied approach. Using
Ideas and Inventions of then Current Knowledge. Of
such and so subjects of Mechanics, Physics, Pneumatics
and Maths. All
subjects in which this Hero. Hero
nomen as well. As well named he
was and had quite a lot to say. So it seems. Therein
and thereof in deed. Also. Also
Letting the Hero speak.
Speak at the Great Library. Came more Calls. And
so they did. Hero. Did Speak. Oft. More.
Thus and so,..
So did Hero… go on. On he did. Go. On many
occasions baffling His Students with His intricate
Designs and Innovative… Inventions. Innovations
as well. Well as
about how to make this and that practical usage of the
variety of Natural Elements so within many of
the various Fields of this and that Study. Fields of Eleusis
these are not. Notice
the Spelling… of Study… Eleusis.
Differs also,.. so my Spellchecker does so and say.
These are them. Therein. Herein
just a Photo too. Two
of. Of the Fields. Of
Ἐλευσίς… Eleusis. As Below. Image.
Modern Reproduction. Also
Eleusis, Fields of thereof.
After Studies. Digging round a bit. Also. As
back to the Hero’s Ways.
Of Greece. Of Yore.
Let the Oracle speak.
As afore. The earlier conquests and exploration by Alexander of Great
Fame and His Armies had opened many new
Ways and Areas great as well. As well
many Visitors soon flowed in. In to such other Cities too. On To
Delphi some in deed indeed
made their Ways. There.
Even the Great Alex. made an Appointment earlier therein. An Oracle
from The Oracle that great quest did so involve. To Delphi that is. ‘Tis
an Ancient Place. A Sanctuary whereby the venerable
Oracle Pythia sat. Also
gave an occasional Oratory Announcement as well. Thus
the nomen. For Her. That is.
This Sanctuary divine was then dedicated to that God Apollo.
Positioned on the Mt. Parnassus nearaways Gulf of Corinth.
The Oracle at Delphi was long held in very high regard. Highly esteemed,
well thought of also within Our World Legends that apply. Therein.
So too with the Great Alex. So
impressed and suitably poised. He was. With
a question for the Divine Oracular One. Pythia. Seated. Thereupon.
The Seat. World Navel. World
Centre thereof. Therein as well.
The Coin above
shows where The Pythia… did sat. Her Seat that is.
The Seat of Pythia that be. The Seat
btw did so and sat as well. As well did Pythia’s Seat sit… well,..
above a Hole basically. Quite well sat, it
seems in deed.
Πῡθίᾱ… The Pythia.
Was a High-Priestess. Ways
up there. Divine Decrees and All
that. That entails. Who was also… very and so
high. Naturally. Stoned. Gassed
actually. Au Natural.
This o so eminent Seat of Pythia sat above a Natural Gas(es) vent.
A hole/crack in the Earth’s Crust from which fumes did vent,..
of some Inner Earthy Nature did so and seep. Out. All over this Place.
The Oracle sat amidst and chatted aways. High on…
Natural Gas. Therein and thereof.
As imaged. Above. She sat upon a Stone and
Gas. Elemental natured. Of some sort.
and told Tales. Tales tall and true. Sorta
like… i, Shiro. Herein. My Gas… though and so. So
be Cigars though. In deed. ‘Tis Times. Times
in deed. For a change.
For this Tale to be so and thus. Continued. Soonish. Next
