Zagreus (oft confused with a dude up a tree)

Camus’ Zagreus once “laughed and added, ‘You see Mersault, all the misery and cruelty of our civilization can be measured by this one stupid axiom: happy nations have no history,’ ” incorporating time and nations into the excruciatingly existential search for ‘metaphysical truth.’

I am fascinated by the scientific endeavor and I read about or engage with those processes as much as possible. I am a compulsive reader and writer. With a background in anthropology and as an arm-chair/backyard scientist, I hope to improve my writing skills and learn about any areas of weakness or misunderstanding in my analytic skills. I am excited to share. Thank you for spending time here. Please reach out if you are so inclined. I'd be excited to hear from you.

  1. “Zagreus sits inside your head,
    Zagreus lives among the dead,
    Zagreus sees you in your bed,
    And eats you when you’re sleeping.
    Zagreus at the end of days,
    Zagreus lies all other ways,
    Zagreus comes when time’s a maze,
    And all of history is weeping.
    Zagreus taking time apart,
    Zagreus fears the hero heart,
    Zagreus seeks the final part,
    The reward that he is reaping.
    Zagreus sings when all is lost,
    Zagreus takes all those he’s crossed,
    Zagreus wins and all it cost,
    The hero’s hearts he’s keeping.
    Zagreus seeks the hero’s ship,
    Zagreus needs the web to rip,
    Zagreus sups time at a drip,
    And life aside, he’s sweeping.
    Zagreus waits at the end of the world,
    For Zagreus is the end of the world.
    His time is the end of time,
    And his moment time’s undoing.”

    I know Zagreus is Greek Mythology, but I am more fond of the Doctor Who poem.
