The Judgment of Minos
The concepts of “judgment” and “afterlife”, in the ancient Greek society, are of lesser importance comparing to the present day. The idea of Chaos plays a fundamental role in the existential concept of life and death during the ancient years, as it is mentioned in Hesiod’s Theogony. Man comes from Chaos and ends in the Chaos (Tartarus). It’s the law of Genesis and decay. Whatever is meant to happen will happen here. We Men have to make it happen during our time here. This has been the cornerstone of the ancient Athenian democracy. The laws are created by humans and not by superior forces and are submitted to constant questioning and reforming.
