Pagan Religion and its interpretation of Hesiodís Theogony

Hesiodís Theogony is a cosmic vision of what became, that lies under the ideas of what we call "ancient religions" before the advent of philosophy. We could say that philosophy, as we know and practise it today, begins by discussing works like those by Homer and Hesiod, trying to integrate them into rational mechanisms the human being can think about.

52) Summary of Pagan Religion about the interpretation of Hesiodís Theogony

The interpretation of Myth is one of the main foundations of the religious matter. Iím perfectly aware that everything I say can be surpassed, since there are other thresholds to pass beyond the threshold of interpretation I went past. Each interpretation of the Myth opens doors that lead to other, new and following interpretations. This is a path that leads us beyond what Hesiod wanted to tell. It leads to unknown worlds, like the world of action, of change, of the time on which Father Cronus rules, and of emotion; this is the world in which the species had lived since the beginning of the Natureís time, when empathic relation was the leading relation among living beings. The world of emotion is a world apart, itís Starry Uranusí world, since it divides the unconscious from the conscious, from what itís aware of itself.

These living universes are unknown to christians who perceive the word, or the book, like only manifestation of their god who was born from a state of psychological disease and is only described in the book, in sacred texts.

The emotional structure has the ability of capitalizing the action with which the subjects live inside the world. Capitalizing means constructing, growing, expanding. The concepts are unknown to the christian who believes his owner-godís creation to be unchangeable.

The Myth tells us about the birth of the Gods and the actions through which the Gods grow. On the opposite, the christian, in his disease, lives in an unchangeable absolute that represents his powerlessness in managing his will of existence.

While the christian commits himself to divine providence, the Myth tells us that we all are born, but itís the way we live that brings us mortals to become immortals and eternal. While the christian relies in the promise from a god who is manifestation of his disease, the Pagan relies in the courage needed to expand his emotional structure in the world in which he lives, growing and constructing a possible future.

Note: Quotes from Hesiodís Theogony in this English version of my work are from Hesiod, the Homeric hymns and homerica translated by Hugh G. Evelyn-White in 1914. Though, where I thought it could be more adherent, I made some corrections to this very old translation, like writing Gaia and Uranus instead of Earth and Heaven

The analysis of Hesiodís Theogony

Pagan Religion has founded a worldview of its own, a view of the world, of life and of coming into existence of the consciousnesses since the beginning of time. These ideas coincide, in present times, with the ideas of cults and religions before the advent of philosophy and have been by force of arms fought by the Christian hate against life. Analyzing Hesiodís work allows us to explain the Pagan Religionís point of view.
