Experts in ancient Greek culture say that people back then didn’t see their thoughts as belonging to them. When ancient Greeks had a thought, it occurred to them as a god or goddess giving an order. Apollo was telling them to be brave. Athena was telling them to fall in love.
Now people hear a commercial for sour cream potato chips and rush out to buy, but now they call this free will.
At least the ancient Greeks were being honest.
had to call my mom as soon as I heard, she got really sad and said “you know, she was the soundtrack to my life.” hearing her music makes me think of being a kid, dancing in the kitchen with my mother. it makes me think of all the things happy and fun about becoming a woman.
RIP Donna Summer, we love you! I know you are still dancing!
