Document Summary

Cc 303, dr. james patterson, week 4, lecture #8, 12 september 2016. Archaic greek definitions of life; being alive vs. dead. Thumose (smoke) led to emotion; anemos (wind) created breath. Similar to the brain but more associated with thought. Key factor that distinguished individuals and defined life. Generally, when people died, they went to either tartarus (the underworld), the isle of the blessed, or very rarely the sky. If the last two, their bodies were resurrected. Access points to tartarus where people or things can cross. One thought to be in every city. Caves, plutoniun (sacred shrines to hades; deep scary caves) Holes in the ground {a modern-day manhole would be considered an entrance to tartarus} Strange lakes (having a weird color, volcanic fumes, or being filled with dead birds) Associated with tartarus because of river styx that"s connected to certain bodies of water. Hermes was the guide for souls to the underworld after separating from their bodies.
