Storyboard Text

  • He ordered that Prometheus be taken to the far East, the Caucuses...
  • Take this traitor as far away from here as possible; somewhere, where he can do no harm.
  • Please.
  • Here, Prometheus was chained to a rock...
  • And an eagle was sent to feast on his liver.
  • Each night, however, Prometheus' liver would regenerate and the eagle would come back the next day to feast. This cycle was to repeat for eternity.
  • Until, the hero Hercules was passing one day during his labours and shot the eagle sown with one of his arrows.
  • Thank you, Hercules!
  • It may be interpreted that Prometheus didn't give man the literal fire, but that the fire was a divine spark. It was the possession of the Gods alone. The spark was the liberator of beings, not allowing them to make things, but allowing them to dream, will, imagine, act, create, challenge and love.The spark is eternal. Therefore, it is uncaused. Zeus did not create the spark, the spark created Zeus. The spark is what made gods liberated beings, with true freedom.By bringing man the spark, Prometheus freed them. Without the spark, man was an empty being, at the control and mercy of the Gods.That is why the gods grew indignant. Suddenly, humans had circumstance. Greater possibilities than they did. Freedom is greater than power, isn’t it?The lesson in this myth, therefore is that we make the choice in every moment. To take the spark from on high, and give it to people. To create, imagine, forgive, challenge. To really expand their possibilities. That is what made Prometheus the liberator of man and the enemy of the Gods, the former's fear that man could one day be greater than they could.
