Re: The Odyssey - question for all!
Just to give a clue: the reason I am asking is because I'm finishing a second book that interprets the Odyssey. The reason I am reading it is because of the growing number of scholars who are convinced that the Bible ripped off Homer and other Greek - and some Mesopotamian - literature. That is what started this research path.
Okay, so I'm reading these books which, of course, necessitates some careful reading of the Odyssey itself. It's rather shocking to realize that this is an instruction manual about hyperdimensional realities, STS/STO, and a host of other very interesting concepts including psychopathology. It is basically a manual for living in a world controlled by gods who may not have our best interests at heart.
What I would like to do is have a group reading of the Odyssey along with me posting some of the fascinating interpretations and comparisons from these books I've been reading. In that way, some seriously interesting ancient perspectives on hyperdimensional realities can be exposed and understood.
I'm sure the text is online for free somewhere though having a good hardcopy in your hands can't be beat.
