Journeying the realms of virtu-reality where wo-man strives to decipher the conundrum........Note that: 1) may contain scary content. 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'

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.

Tuatha Dé Danann

Tuatha Dé Danann | They were here and might return | Scoop.it

 

In Irish-Celtic folklore, the Tuatha Dé Danann ("People of the goddess Danu") are the Irish race of gods, founded by the goddess Danu.

 

These gods, who originally lived on 'the islands in the west', had perfected the use of magic.

 

They traveled on a big cloud to the land that later would be called Ireland and settled there.

 

Shortly after their arrival they defeated the Firbolg at the first battle of Mag Tuireadh.

 

In the second battle of Mag Tuireadh they fought and conquered the Fomorians, a race of giants who were the primordial inhabitants of Ireland.

 

The Tuatha Dé dealt more subtly with the Fomorians than with the Firbolg, and gave them the province of Connacht. There was also some marrying between the two races.

 

The Tuatha Dé themselves were later driven to the underworld by the Milesians, the people of the fabulous spanish king Milesius.

 

There they still live as invisible beings and are known as the Aes sidhe. In a just battle, they will fight beside mortals.

 

When they fight, they go armed with lances of blue flame and shields of pure white...

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...
