Journeying the realms of virtu-reality where wo-man strives to decipher the conundrum........Note that: 1) may contain content inappropriate or scary for children. 2)In my ken, all beings thought of being gods are entities from other dimensions with supernatural powers way beyond regular human capacity. This made many people who experienced their presence misconcept them as gods, demi-gods, and.....Things are going to change when proportion of us evolves into 'luminous'

Chimaera, Chimera, Khimaira

Chimaera, Chimera, Khimaira | They were here and might return | Scoop.it


A fire-breathing creature, which, according to the Homeric poems, was of divine origin.

 

The fore part of her body was that of a lion, and the hind part that of a dragon, while the middle was that of a goat.


According to Hesiod, she was a daughter of Typhaon and Echidna, and had three heads, one of each of the three animals before mentioned, whence she is called trikephalos or trisômatos.


She was killed by Bellerophon, and Virgil places her together with other monsters at the entrance of Orcus.


The origin of the notion of this fire-breathing monster must probably be sought for in the volcano of the name of Chimaera near Phaselis, in Lycia...

Feng Huang

Feng Huang | They were here and might return | Scoop.it

Feng and huang are supernatural Chinese birds that reign over all other birds.

 

The males are called Feng and the females Huang.

 

In modern times, however, such a distinction of gender is often no longer made and the Feng and Huang are blurred into a single feminine entity so that the bird can be paired with the Chinese dragon, which has male connotations.

 

The Fenghuang is also called the "August Rooster" since it sometimes takes the place of the Rooster in the Chinese Zodiac.

 

In the West, it is commonly referred to as the Chinese Phoenix.
