it’s funny how in college the kids who drink are super nonjudgmental and don’t care whether you drink or not but the kids who don’t drink judge everyone who goes out so hard. like wow
Aristophanes in Plato’s Symposium suggests that human form was not always as it is today. There was a time where humans were born with their partners as a whole. Spherical in shape, with four arms, four legs and two faces on either side of a single head.
There were three sexes back then; the male-male, female-female, and male-female. Referred to as the children of the Sun, Earth, and Moon. Such was their arrogance, they dared to challenge the Gods. So Zeus, in his anger, hailed up a storm and with his lighting, ripped through the flesh of the children of the Sun, Moon and Earth; splitting them into two, each becoming a distinct entity. Since then, human beings have been running around in panic, trying to shove themselves back together, searching for their lost counterparts in a desire to be whole again.
