Thought I would share this short email I sent to a friend last week with my philosophical friends:
I am in Delphi for a few days and got into an interesting conversation this morning with a young guy from Delphi. He explained a couple of interesting Greek words to me.
Well you know what HUBRIS is - and how the God wacks people back down into place who show any hubris. (Iporopis in Greek)
So he told me this word OK: APOTHEIOSES - which is the opposite of Hubris and the God wacking a person down - and we've both been wacked down a few times now buddy.....
APOTHEIOSES means to start from the bottom - and work your way up again - but in a better way - including working your way all the way up to the divine....... Nice word eh...... Funny old people these Greeks :)
So APOTHEIOSES my friend.....
