Do you remember when Pandora released hope from that jar? Well, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, Pandora was smarter than Zeus gave her credit for when he created her. The hope that Pandora released summoned the goddess Athene, whose sagacious, ubiquitous nature served quite well in the overarching plan of concocting the god-teacher archetype. First, one must be familiar with the goings-on of Zeus' kingdom after the beautiful Pandora married Epimetheus and released the sprites and hope from the token gift jar that Zeus had sent. Zeus was sick and tired of having to spell out his every move to the people of the lands he governed. The people wanted to know what was occurring, and Zeus could not stand the constant questioning of the people about what his "godly duties" entailed. One day, Zeus called all the people of Greece together and, with his dastardly attitude, spelt out exactly what he would do to each and every person if they questioned his motives or actions any further: "To that cowardly looking menace over there; I shall shower him with vermin and never let him see the light of day. And that wretchedly wrinkled old hag standing off to the side; she shall be stripped, baked, and served to the hyenas at dusk once each day. To all of you, I warn you of my power, and beseech you to tame your ways, lest you want to incur the wrath of your powerful ruler, Zeus." One defiant dweller of the crowd stood up, eager to speak his mind before the great and powerful Zeus. He was not afraid; rather, he was ready, willing, and able to speak for this important cause, which he felt he must make right for all the other inhabitants of Zeus' monarchy. He bellowed before Zeus: "Oh Zeus, high and mighty, shrewd and vulgar, maniacal and deceitful, you are dreaded and feared, shamed and useless to your people. You cause them nothing but stress and spite toward you. You are the epitome of all that is to be disrespected and hated in this god-forsaken world that you rule". Zeus, upon hearing this, was anything but shaken. Since he had started walking away before this crowd-dweller stood up and spoke his mind, he whipped himself round and regaled himself once again with his robe and crown of which he had already disrobed himself. He wanted the crowd to see his kingly stature and appear before them the unshaken minister of godliness. "Who spoke these harsh words to the one and only Zeus? Who dares defy the King?" The people of the land were smitten with this rebellious individual in their midst. They too longed for the placid times before Zeus took power, but had neither the nerve nor shame to encourage Zeus' rage and anguish at the people of his kingdom any more than it was already stirred. Despite their fear of the King, they had no trouble goading the fine speaker in the crowd to speak further on their behalf: "It was I who spoke, King Zeus." Even though the speaker did not believe in the power of Zeus' title of King, he still spoke out of respect for the title that he himself had once held. The emaciated man in the crowd was none other than King Cronus, the undisputed father of Zeus, and past god to the people of Mount Olympus. If one remembers Cronus' past, one will come to understand why Zeus is so terrible and powerful a King. His father Cronus set

"You never expected to see me again. goddess of wisdom. saved her son Zeus from Cronus' plan by feeding her husband a rock. where he ruled under the name of Saturn. within the blink of an eye.

"Dear father. my despicable. He stood there. Cronus came to power by castrating his father Uranus and then attempted to. Besides you father. your father. and it only took the release of hope by the beautiful Pandora whom you created to bring forth my true feelings toward you. with a kind of calm emanating from him that hushed the crowd and stilled Zeus in his tracks when he was but ten feet away from his father. or worse yet. "the citizens of your country yearn for grace. I detest you father. However. who had stood humbled amongst the crowd of Zeus' citizens." These words startled Zeus. did you. All of a sudden. for the many trials and tribulations of your kingdom. caught many in the crowd by surprise.

For that. and said but a few words that resonated for the rest of time in Zeus' mind: "Zeus. friends. and Athene. in fact.
