What is the sin of Icarus? The son of Daedalus, defied his fathers warnings and flew too close to the "sun" and fell to his death down below. While Daedalus flew on, the master who created the wings to fly with for himself and his son. What does the sun represent? The myth is being explained as the sun being an ambition that is beyond limits. Is this a warning for humanity to not venture far into the "sun"? The humanity has surpassed the limits defied by the imagination of the Greeks...we have standed on the moon, floated in space, and sent our vessels around the Sun, the planets of our system, and outside of the solar system. So what is this "sun" for us? What is this limit to humanity that is a warning in the story of Icarus? Dare we not fly? we did... A human ornithopter, the dream of civilizations, had been flown ... it got almost no media attention, either View attachment 5717 View attachment 5718 View attachment 5719 Is this "sun" an everchaning limit, that changes as our civilization evolves in consciousness of itself and the surroundings? Is the rate of evolution of our civilization the warning? What would happen if we were to choose a path where we would step over bounds of our own evolution of thought? Utopia and a new social structure of community that lives in total balance with itself and surroundings is what we are striving for, right?
