The Hubris of “Eternity”, and the fate of Old Gods

Seeing the fallen columns of Zeus’ Temple today, I couldn’t help but contemplate the hubris of “eternity”. All gods must die: and one day, if they are un/lucky, they return to be sold as trinkets to Chinese tourists.

Millenia ago Horus, Demeter, Minerva were once loved, feared and venerated. Today we read about them not as living entities, but history and myth. 

One wonders about ideas and ideologies only 2014AD young, or younger, and how they will look like, when they are one day as old as Ra-Horakhty.
