Mythology – Templo Do Conhecimento Fri, 24 Jun 2022 04:04:19 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Mythology – Templo Do Conhecimento 32 32 New South Melbourne artwork channels Greek gods Fri, 24 Jun 2022 04:01:08 +0000

Hickory has unveiled new artwork designed by Alexander Knox sitting in the atrium of its new Market Lane development which was designed by Elenberg Fraser in South Melbourne.

The work, titled Joy to Mortals, is made of dichroic glass and hangs above the atrium. It is directly inspired by Greek mythology, the structure illuminates the office building and completes the series of art in Market Lane.

Knox has earned a reputation for creating striking and intriguing visuals. His work is featured in various collections including the National Gallery of Victoria, RMIT University and Arts ACT.

“It was one of those big projects where you have a fantastic site, in the five-story atrium of Hickory’s headquarters, and a client who’s willing to trust you with a big vision,” Knox says.

“I captured Greek mythology with an abstraction of Zeus’ destruction of Helios’ sun chariot. This mythical event is encapsulated in a solar sculpture that uses curved metal surfaces and dichroic glass to create an ever-changing lighting effect. It is indeed a hybrid sculpture of the material and the ephemeral.

Sarah Ritson is the project’s artistic consultant.

“It was an absolute pleasure to work with Alexander Knox and the team at Hickory to achieve this outstanding result,” she said.

“Alexander responded perfectly to Elenberg Fraser’s Market Lane architecture and brief.”

Joy to Mortals has its origins in the ancient story of Phaethon, who borrowed a sun chariot from his father and sun god Helios. Unable to control the reins of the chariot, Phaethon accidentally freezes and then burns the earth, before Zeus strikes Phaethon with a single lightning bolt, ending his disastrous journey. The work captures this mythical cataclysm with a series of optical fragments embodying the deconstructed solar chariot and floating debris.

The room sits between the two prominent buildings on Market Lane, using natural light to make sunlight visible through controlled spotlights to add a splash of color and intrigue. The working forms add to the visual connectivity of the space, capturing sunlight and its changing effects even when the sun is not active.

Legacy: six reasons why the spin-off failed to match the success of its predecessors Tue, 21 Jun 2022 21:00:00 +0000

After four seasons, 68 episodes and many twists and turns, Legacies is over.

As a show set in the same universe as The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, it largely failed to live up to its predecessors.

It’s time to dive deep into what went wrong.

Mythology was everywhere

The Vampire Diaries and The Originals ran with a tightly woven mythology that allowed the drama to continue.

Hope's Final Plan - Legacies Season 4 Episode 19

Legacies initially opted for a monster-of-the-week format, as the creatives committed to differentiating Legacies from its predecessors.

While this format worked initially, the creativity surrounding the monsters crumbled pretty quickly.

Malivore was introduced as this primal evil on Legacies Season 1 and should have been dealt with much sooner.

If the show had employed at least one general villain per season, it would have been easier to get on board with the monsters.

It was more like the writers had no idea what they wanted the show to look like in the long run, instead of changing things up on an episodic basis that didn’t translate very well to the screen.

Alaric on a grave?  - Legacy Season 4 Episode 19

He forgot too much about what made Vampire Diaries and The Originals Success Stories.

It’s rare for a spin-off to eclipse its predecessor, but sometimes The Originals was better than The Vampire Diaries.

Both shows had their strengths and weaknesses, but there was so much potential for Legacies to mix together what we loved from previous shows in the franchise and add new stuff to accommodate new viewers.

One of the things that was completely and utterly bizarre was how the show handled the merger.

Lizzie wants answers on MG - Legacies Season 3 Episode 4

If you watch The Vampire Diaries online, you know that the Gemini Coven arc was a huge story that should have had high stakes in the Legacies narrative.

Lizzie and Josie were on the show, so of course there should have been a much bigger payoff here.

Admittedly, the departure of Kaylee Bryant at the start of season 4 of Legacies probably forced the writers to deviate from the initial plan.

However, this scenario could have been handled so much better from the jump.

Hope is looking for her lover - Legacies Season 3 Episode 4

Too many characters and not enough storylines

Taking place in a school of magic brought a lot of characters into the mix, but the show just couldn’t serve them all.

There was so much wasted potential because the show chose to focus on characters it felt were worthy of bigger storylines.

This was somewhat rectified with the introduction of Cleo, who became one of the better characters.

On the Docks - Legacies Season 3 Episode 5

However, the glaring issue of characters disappearing for multiple episodes simultaneously without explanation.

Poor Finch had been out for cake for HOW many episodes?

Jed should have had a much bigger presence earlier. He was absent for the first three and a half seasons.

Hope’s strength has been suppressed for too long

Hope's Magic Intensifies - Legacies Season 3 Episode 6

Hope was conceived in The Vampire Diaries, and her powers began to manifest on The Originals, so she should have been the most powerful being in the universe on Legacies.

Legacies essentially put the true extent of Hope’s abilities on the back burner.

I don’t know if it was a budgetary decision or if there was some other reason for it, but it meant that fans who had watched the rise of this almighty being on The Originals n had been useless.

Hope is one of the best characters in The Vampire Diaries universe, but it was hard to see her powers go untapped.

Lizzie's Fake Smile - Legacies Season 3 Episode 6

Once she became the Tribrid, she should have shown her powers more. The writers deliberately smothered her abilities, which was one of the show’s biggest problems.

Hope was struggling with a love interest

It wouldn’t be a Julie Plec show without a love interest in the lead role, but damn it, they sure did a terrible job with that relationship.

There were so many glaring issues that were glossed over to make this relationship a thing, and in the process, Hope’s writing faltered.

Hope is Impressed - Legacies Season 3 Episode 7

If the creatives hadn’t been so set on Hope and Landon, then maybe Hope could have become the Tribrid sooner, and the show could have reached its full potential.

The show would have been much better if the writers had kept Hope and Landon together, but hadn’t done every storyline about Hope saving him.

The series only embraced darkness in its final season

Legacies was largely devoid of stakes throughout its run. The characters didn’t stay dead, and there always seemed to be a solution to some of the biggest spoilers of the narrative.

New Rules - Legacies Season 3 Episode 6

The first three seasons were much lighter than any seasons of the other shows, effectively alienating much of the fanbase.

Legacies Season 4 was the first season that felt tied to previous shows in terms of tone and storylines.

The story of Hope’s No Humanity could have been great, but it lasted far too long to be memorable.

The lack of Monsters of the Week has really helped the show stay on the same note, and it’s a shame the show was canceled just when it struck the right balance.

We don’t know if any of these characters will appear in future in-universe projects, but Legacies Season 4 Episode 20 was a decent series finale, even if it wasn’t planned.

Josie sees the light - Legacies Season 3 Episode 7

What do you think of Legacies and how it compares to the larger Vampire Diaries universe?

Do you think the changes were necessary to make the show worthwhile, or would you have preferred it to use a darker tone from the start?

How a team of Japanese scientists invented ‘living human skin’ for self-healing robots – Technology News, Firstpost Mon, 20 Jun 2022 07:25:32 +0000

If you ever thought that Arnold Schwarzenegger terminator can never be a real possibility, or that it was at least a thousand years in the future, think againbecause a team of Japanese scientists has developed “real” living, human-like skin for robots that heals itself.

The creation of artificial humans or humanoids has been the goal of many for centuries. There have been examples of this practice even in Greek mythology. But we’ve never been closer to reaching a realistic goal human-like robot that we currently do.

A team of Japanese scientists from the University of Tokyo actually grew living human skin from human skin cells. This new material feels, works and behaves just like normal human skin. The lab-made skin has successfully generated the look and feel of real human skin and has been shown to repel water and repair itself when damaged by minor injuries and abrasions.

Explained_ How a team of Japanese scientists invented the

This new “living” skin for robots could push progress towards humanoid robotics even further. That’s because looking “real” is one of the top priorities for engineers and researchers for humanoid robots. Imagine if Elon Musk appropriated this technology for the Tesla bot.

Since these robots are designed to work directly in the healthcare and service industries, they need to look real and human to avoid scaring people away. Only this time, it seems science has outdone itself.

Shoji Takeuchi, a professor at the University of Tokyo who led the team of scientists, says the researchers created a new kind of method of molding the tissue instead of cutting the skin to fit the finger. Then they immersed the finger in a cylinder filled with a mixture of collagen and human dermal fibroblasts which is a form of human skin tissue. Basically, they had to use the two main components of skin connectivity tissue.

Explained_ How a team of Japanese scientists invented the

This plan succeeded in making a living skin for the robots due to its natural tendency to shrink. As it dried, the mixture shrunk and closely conformed to the robotic finger and gave it a realistic but somewhat clammy look.

Takeuchi thinks living skin is the “ultimate solution” to making robots look like living creatures. And it looks like the researchers are close to making living skin for the robots. The team plans to bring their new development to some of the prominent Japanese robotics companies in the world.

Summer Constellations | Prairie Public Broadcasting Sat, 18 Jun 2022 06:05:00 +0000

Summer is a good time to do a little stargazing, and we’re heading for a new moon on the 29th, so if the skies are clear, stargazing should be pretty good for the next two weeks.

There are of course many constellations to see, but Scorpius (the scorpion) is one of the most remarkable. It can be seen in the southern sky at dusk and will move slowly across the southern horizon until it disappears in the southwest around 3 a.m.

Scorpius is shaped like a hook with the eye of the hook at the top right, then reaches down and to the left towards the hook that faces up. To visualize the scorpion, start with the heart which is the star Antares. It is the sixteenth brightest star in the sky. Once you find Antares, you can visualize the scorpion facing west. The head is at the top right of Antares and consists of three stars arranged almost vertically. To the lower left of Antares is the rest of the body, ending with the tail which curls over the top of the body.

There are several stories in Greek mythology about Orion, one of which is that Orion is killed by a scorpion. Orion boasted that he could kill all the animals on earth. Gaea, the Earth Goddess then sent a scorpion after Orion to protect the animals in case Orion tried to kill the animals. A battle finally began, with the scorpion killing Orion. Orion and Scorpius are now placed in the skies on either side of the sky to avoid any possibility of rematch.

Once you find Scorpius, you should be able to find Sagittarius (the archer) following Scorpius around the night sky. Sagittarius is imagined as a centaur facing west, or right, with his bow drawn at Scorpius. You will notice that the arrow points to Antares which you may recall represents the heart of the scorpion.

The night sky is full of things to see. So take the time this summer to observe the stars. There are many resources available to help you navigate the night sky, such as your local library, bookstores, as well as the Internet. Then, find a dark place on a clear, warm night, lie down and take in the celestial spectacle.

What Americans Need to Know About the KMT’s Past | Taiwan News Thu, 16 Jun 2022 03:34:00 +0000

TAICHUNG (Taiwan News) – Kuomintang (KMT) Chairman Eric Chu (朱立倫) has just returned from a trip to the United States, where he reopened the party office in Washington DC, met with groups of foreign compatriots , academics, officials, the Project 2049 think tank, and did everything to impress its hosts.

He claimed the KMT has “always” been pro-American, has never been pro-China, has fought communism for over 100 years, and called the 1992 Consensus “a consensus without a consensus.” Curiously, he also revealed that he was apparently the 29th generation descendant of a Chinese poet from the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1279).

Chu sought to assure his American audience that he was on their side, and by always being able to speak with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the KMT is a force for stability and dialogue in the Taiwan Strait – unlike to the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), which has been shut out of any discussion since Chairwoman Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) took office in 2016. More importantly, he wanted to dispel the idea in Washington that the KMT is pro-China and cannot be trusted.

This message was sharply contrasted during an almost simultaneous visit to China by Chu’s predecessor, former KMT Chairman Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱), who in a Facebook post called the Chinese genocide in Turkestan East (Xinjiang) of “anti-terrorism”.

He was also quoted by Chinese news agency Xinhua as saying, “All kinds of facts have shown that the accusations against Chinese Xinjiang fabricated by the United States and some other Western countries are totally slanderous.”

Chu’s assertion that the KMT has always been pro-American and anti-Communist is not entirely accurate, either historically or currently. The reality, as Hung and Chu’s radically divergent messages demonstrate, is more complicated than that.

power and influence

The KMT has its roots in the movement to overthrow the hated “barbarian” Manchurians from the throne of the Qing dynasty (1636-1912) in China and restore Han Chinese rule under a republican form of government. Over time, he endured civil wars, rose to rule most of China, fought the Japanese, lost China to the Chinese Communist Party, and fled with the remnants in shreds of the government of the Republic of China to distant Taiwan.

Taiwan, which for most of this period had been a colony of the Empire of Japan, was a fairly foreign place to newcomers, with native inhabitants speaking Japanese and various regional Han and native languages. The KMT set about seizing the power apparatus of the Japanese colonial government and, distrusting the locals (especially after they violently rose up against mismanagement, corruption and inflation in 1947), held almost every position of power and influence with newly arrived Chinese exiles. .

These exiles and their families, although they represent only between 10% and 20% of the population, have undertaken to remake Taiwan and the Taiwanese in their (Chinese) image. This included KMT ideology, its pantheon of heroes and villains, and the mythology of an epic past, all taught to schoolchildren in their imported national language, Mandarin.

Much of the KMT’s top leadership grew up in this environment, and this self-image remains very real in the minds of many party members, especially those from exiled Chinese families. Both officially and in the hearts and minds of their followers, the KMT is Chinese and Taiwan is part of China.

In the United States, when Eric Chu spoke of defense and 100 years of opposition to communism, he was referring to the defense of the Republic of China (ROC) and the fight against the CCP dating back to the Chinese Civil War.

The 1992 Consensus that the KMT and CCP both claim to accept is phrased on the KMT side as “there is one China, each side with its own interpretation” – although the CCP has never accepted the “de each side” and views the ROC as an extinct state replaced by the founding of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1949.

The KMT and the CCP firmly maintain that the South China Sea, the Senkaku (Diaoyu) Islands, Tibet and other territories are Chinese territories, although they disagree on which China they belong to . Taiwan maintains several outposts in the South China Sea due to this heritage.

Difficult relationship

Chu’s message to his American audience was, in essence, the standard KMT approach during the martial law period and early Democratic period in the late 1990s. They were staunchly anti-Communist, devoted to the defense of the ROC and pro-US

To date, the KMT has been largely pro-American, but contrary to Chu’s “always pro-American” assertion, the relationship has at times been rocky, and American “betrayal” at key times is a crucial part of KMT mythology. When the KMT ruled China, treaty ports (including US concessions) were a sticking point, as was the US at various points in the Civil War intervening to try to put the KMT and CCP on the same footing. wavelength in the fight against the Japanese. invasion.

After the move to Taiwan, there were frequent clashes, including over the US preventing the KMT from attempting to “reclaim the mainland”, the behavior of US troops there (which led to the ransacking of the embassy by a mob in 1957), and efforts to open Taiwan’s markets and devalue the currency. There was also the severance of diplomatic relations in favor of Beijing, which many inside and outside the KMT still view with bitterness.

Another incident that led many young activists, including future president Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九), to protest is the Baodiao movement after the United States returned the Ryukyu Islands to Japan. The deal included the Senkaku (Diaoyu) Islands, which both the KMT and the CCP claim belong to China.

These incidents, and many others over the years, left a residue of mistrust and resentment among many Taiwanese, especially within the KMT. This was evident in recent vocal KMT protests against the government’s abandonment of the import ban on pork containing ractopamine.

That being said, however, the KMT has remained pro-American over the years. The assistance provided by the United States during evacuations from China, diplomatic support for “Free China” until the 1970s, and years of massive financial and military support during the Cold War meant that the KMT and the Taiwanese remained pro-American.

Considerable cultural and economic ties have been forged over the years, deepening the relationship. Indeed, most of the KMT’s top leaders were educated in the United States, and many of their children are US citizens.

As pro-American as the KMT has remained, since 2000 another force inside the KMT has arisen: the pro-Chinese. Any US assessment of the KMT must bear this in mind.

This will be the subject of the next column.

US town plans to change name to Kush, slang for marijuana Sun, 12 Jun 2022 07:32:00 +0000

Colorado town of Moffat considering proposal to rename it Kush

  • The southern Colorado town of Moffat might be renamed Kush, a slang term for marijuana.
  • It is seen as a rebranding effort to ride the wave of cannabis tourism.
  • There is speculation that Lucknow might also change its name, just for a different reason.
A town in Colorado in the United States is considering changing its name from Moffat to Kush, in honor of the local marijuana industry. Beat that, Yogi Adityanath.

Cities are renamed every day, either because their former names were considered “offensive” or because people think they don’t fully represent a place’s heritage. India is no stranger to this phenomenon.

You would often see a shift from historically Indo-Persian names to more Desi versions or something that aligns with the collective “identity” of us Indians.

However, Mike Biggio, and we’re not making this up, co-founder of Area 420, a 420-acre business park in Moffat, proposed that the board rename the town to Kush, a slang term for grass.

The proposal can be seen as a rebranding effort to cash in on lucrative cannabis tourism after recent reports indicated the industry’s market value was around $17 billion.

Area 420 is home to 70 cannabis grow operations and marijuana-related businesses, UPI reported.

]]> Comedy Show MANHATTAN MYTHS arrives in the pit Thu, 09 Jun 2022 23:09:10 +0000

Those interested in mythology can find statues and paintings of mythological creatures in Manhattan’s museums. The Greek and Roman gods, however, have now spawned a new comedy show at PIT that finds humor in myths out of place in Manhattan.

As part of its summer lineup, the PIT at 154 W 29th St presents an original and hilarious new comedy show called “Manhattan Myths” from July 22 through August 7. “Myths” is an entertaining and thought-provoking production featuring a stellar cast of nine performers in a series of short films, based on myths set in Manhattan, with a comedic twist. Tickets are $17 online.

A 1980 movie was memorably titled “The Gods Must Be Mad,” but in this show, we find out they can be funny, too, in the right hands.

This production, featuring performers who have worked at venues such as the PIT and Second City, features comedy sketches/scenes around the theme of “myths with a twist” set in Manhattan. The show is directed by Christopher James and written by Claude Solnik.

The all-star cast includes Atticus Cain, Tanya Chattman, Isaiah Rothstein, Chaz McCormack, Dana Segal, Ryan Tramont, Emily Vaeth, Haley Walter and Nick Zelletz. Lighting is designed by Cat J. Cusick.

“If there’s anything the world needs more than ever right now, it’s connection and laughter,” said ‘Manhattan Myths’ director Christopher James. “We want to bring fun and delight, intrigue and wonder and deliver that same connection and emotion, that journey and joy, to the audience. The show is meant as a break and respite from the disconnection that we see right outside our doors and the world around us. So, very simply, let’s make art and have fun.”

In a series of wacky and surreal situations, James and actress Emily Vaeth, who is also co-assistant director, work with talented actors and lighting designer Cat. J. Cusick who brings his own artistry to the show.

The production is meant to mine old-fashioned mythos to find ways to put New Yorkers in extraordinary circumstances as we watch waiters exact revenge, imaginations run wild and dance teachers leap from the screen. and in the living room.

Add to that a pilot who seems to engage in time travel as well as geographic travel, and you have a comical universe out of different kinds of mythology and magic.

“Once you talk about mythology, just about anything can happen. Not that it doesn’t, anyway,” Solnik said. “Mythos gives us a lot of great characters and situations. When you start putting those characters into parties and Manhattan in general, you can find some silly situations and funny circumstances.”

In Manhattan Myths, we meet a genius who is fed up with all the expectations of people who believe he has to follow rules designed by Disney. Tired of holding the world back, Atlas interviews people for the job. And then there is someone who receives for his birthday a box with very mythical content. Cupid has one too many at a cocktail party.

“Greek and Roman mythology have always fascinated me and we have selected and designed each weekend to include different rooms and scenes,” James said. “We are offering discounted prices if you wish to attend more than one weekend and continue the connection and adventures we are creating,”

James added that “‘Manhattan Myths’ combines a decades-long love for these stories, sets them in contemporary, New York scenarios that we’ve all lived and experienced, and couldn’t be more desired and on point.”

However, he had another piece of advice for the participants of this show which mixes myth, magic and Manhattan.

“Let the hilarity and shenanigans ensue,” James said. “Oh, but beware of the sirens, from the entrance.”

THE PIT LOFT Theater, 154 W 29th St, New York, NY 10001, between 6th and 7th Streets. Shows are on Fridays. July 22 at 6:30 p.m.; Sat. July 23 at 7 p.m. Sun. July 24 at 7 p.m.; Fri.

Why Jedi Take Kids Away From Their Families When They’re So Young Sun, 05 Jun 2022 22:10:00 +0000

The Jedi alienate young Force-sensitives from their families when they are so young for two reasons, one of which is rather surprising.

In the star wars universe, Padawan children are taken from their families and by the Jedi at a very young age, but there are a number of reasons for this, both practical and mythological. The Jedi are the peacekeepers in the star wars galaxy, known for harnessing the power of the Force, taking a monk’s vow to serve the order once they pass their trials, exercising their justice with diplomacy and, when required, the use of a saber laser. The Jedi are made up of all kinds of alien species, as long as they are Force-sensitive, which can be seen in their early abilities, as well as the number of midichlorians in their blood, which are microscopic intelligent life forms that exist in all creatures. throughout the galaxy, but to varying degrees of importance.


Throughout the star wars movies and series, it is commonly referenced that children need to start at a young age in order to be properly trained as Jedi. The first case is The Empire Strikes Backwhen Yoda tells Obi-Wan’s Force Ghost that Luke Skywalker is too old to become a Jedi at the age of 22. Mace Windu says the same about Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars’ Episode I – The Phantom Menace, as Anakin was nine years old in the film. However, the aspect of age is a bit tricky when it comes to species, as some mature faster than others. This is evident in The Mandalorian and Boba Fett’s Bookwhere Grogu is taken in by Luke Skywalker to be trained as a Jedi at the age of 50, as he is still considered a child at that age.

Related: How Many Jedi Survived Order 66 (In Canon)

There are ultimately a number of reasons why young people are removed from their families at such a young age, the first being that becoming a Jedi requires an absolute commitment to the order, letting go of all personal attachments and connections. This is a less traumatic event if they are taken at a young age, as they have not yet formed the unbreakable bonds with their family that they would otherwise have, which could be a major disruption to their formation. and a potential path to the dark side. Anger, fear, aggression, and lust for power are the main dark side traits to watch out for, all of which could be increased by a desire for loved ones or a return to a home of origin. Additionally, starting Force-sensitive youth early allows Jedi to cultivate their minds without the barriers of invasive behaviors and bad habits.

Terentatek Star Wars

However, there is an even deeper mythological reason why the Jedi took young people from an early age that has yet to be explored live. In the Star Wars: The High Republic: Path of Shadows comic series, it is explained that the youngsters are taken in for an entirely different reason: to protect them from monsters. In this case, the monsters in question are the Terentatek, a brutal creature that feeds on the midichlorian-rich blood of its victims. Believed to have been created by the Sith as a means to destroy the Jedi, the Terentatek originated on the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk, but spread throughout the galaxy in order to hunt down future Jedi. It was believed that the Jedi rescued these Force-sensitive children in order to protect and train them.

Over the years, the population dwindled and the threat no longer existed, but because the Jedi adhere to tradition, it’s likely that fostering youngsters at a young age was simply rationalized to separate them from the attachment and train them while they were still virgins. slates. Surely that’s where the “too old” aspect comes from, as many species, including humans, tend to develop habits and relationships that might inhibit their commitment to the Jedi Order as they grow older. they mature. Ultimately, this reasoning makes more sense in the current context. star wars timeline, though still quite fluid among species and not always true, as many Jedi were able to become Knights and Masters after beginning their training much later in life.
