Who was pysche?
Asked in Aphrodite (Venus)
Was Aphrodite good or bad?
She is generally good. She helps people fall in love. But once, there was a mortal named Pysche, who people thought to be even more beautiful than Aphrodite herself. Aphrodite was so enraged, she asked her son, Cupid, to shoot Pysche with an arrow to make her fall in love with an ugly, cruel, old man. But Cupid, distracted by Pysche's looks, accidently pricked himself with the arrow and fell in love with Pysche even more. Aphrodite was so angry about this that she sent Pysche on perilous and near-impossible journeys and quests, hoping to torture her. So is she good or bad? I'll leave that for you to decide.

Is being a child psychologist rewarding?
If you want to help people and can handle the stress of when there is nothing else that can be done. Yes, it can be. Just like with any profession, you must have a passion for the work and be able to separate your professional life from your personal life. Some people are not made to work with children in any capacity, let alone that of the world into the pysche, so be sure that is something you can handle.

Asked in Greece
In Greek mythology how do Psyche's sisters create doubts about her future husband?
Psyche's sisters create doubts about Psyche's husband by telling her that they knew that he was a fearful serpent, and though he seemed kind, he was going to eat her someday. This ignites fear in Psyche, as "there must be something very wrong for him so to shun the light of day". After Pysche told them about the nights visits, they were envious and replied that it was dark and she couldn't see who it was. They said it was most likely a terrible flying serpent in disguise and not a winged prince.

Why is gender the base of social inequality?
Back in the times of primitive man, humans often lived in groups or in pairs. Since females can reproduce, they become valuable. Females also have to raise their children. It was the male's duty to protect the female and his children and gather food. This is often seen in the animal world, especially with other primates. It is instinct. As humans evolved, that fact stayed the same, as life was still very dangerous. Females are always valuable to a population. However, in modern times, life is not always dangerous, so that instinct/way of life is not applicable. But it still remains embedded in our pysche and dormant instincts.
Where and when did burning books begin?
Here is a reference to about 2,000 years ago, and the library at Alexandria was burned at least 2,100 years ago by the Romans: "The book is both the symbol and the main conveyor of rational thinking. Book burning is rooted in the Christian pysche. We find reference to book burning as early as the time of the apostles. Given below is how, according to Luke, some new Christian converts joyously celebrated their conversion to Christianity: Acts 19:18-20 Many also of those who were now believers came, confessing and divulging their practices. And a number of those who practiced magic arts brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all; and they counted the value of them and found it came to fifty thousand pieces of silver. So the word of the Lord grew and prevailed mightily
Asked in Rugby, Rugby Union
How can you be more aggressive in rugby?
Pysche your self up before hand. Heavy musics good etc. It depends on you really, I've seen one of the calmest, relaxed players I've known suddenly flip out because some guy grabbed him by the neck, he went absolutely skitz. We actually told an easily angered kid that the opposition said something about his mother and that was it, he was geared up the whole match. You just have to find something that makes you feel angry. For me I'd imagine they'd (opposition) insulted my girlfriend, called her a rude name or something else offensive. Everyone's different though. Another things that helps is fitness level. The better your fitness level the more energy you can direct towards playing a vigorous game. If your huffing and puffing don't expect to have a lot of energy left for being aggressive.

What is the story of Cupid and Psyche?
The Story of Cupid and Psyche Once upon a time there lived a maiden so beautiful that she was thought to be lovelier than even Venus, Goddess of Love. Venus, out of jealousy, commanded that her son, Cupid, ensure that no man would ever love her. Cupid went to Psyche, but accidently stuck himself with the tip of one of his arrows, and fell in love with her. He followed his mother's orders, making it so that no man would look upon her with love, and then he left. Her family, surprised to find that their daughter was no longer sought by any suitor when before men had travelled some distance to court her, consulted the oracle of Apollo. The Oracle said that the daughter had angered the Gods in some way, and must be sacrificed to a monster to appease them. In sorrow, they took their daughter to the top of a nearby mountain and left her there, to await her fate. Soon Zephyr, the God of the winds, came along and carried her along to a beautiful palace. A voice addressed her, though she saw no one, and it instructed her to enjoy the house and grounds around her. At night, when she retired to bed, she was joined in her bed by a lover, who said he was her husband but that she must never look upon him. He was gentle, but he was gone by morning. For some time Psyche lived like this, though she often requested to see her husband's face. He would cover her in a gentle blanket and refuse to let her see. Finally, one night Psyche kept an oil lamp nearby, and when she knew her husband to be asleep she lit the lamp. Lying in her bed was the God Cupid, and what she had taken as a soft blanket was his wings. In her shock, she spilled a drop of hot oil and it dropped onto his shoulder. Cupid awoke, and was angry with Psyche for breaking his command to not look upon him. He fled, and abandoned her. She chased after him, but as she could not fly she was soon left behind. Unable to find her husband again, Psyche went to Venus, his mother, and begged her for help. Venus, who was still angry at the mortal, refused to help unless Psyche agreed to perform labours to show her devotion. Psyche agreed and was set about a number of tasks. She was asked to sort out a storehouse full of grains by their type. Despairing, she asked for aid, and an army of ants came to help her, sorting the grains out. She was next directed to gather a handful of wool from some wild and dangerous sheep. Again, she asked for aid, and the briars by the riverside told her to wait, and after the sheep had drunk, she could gather the wool from their briars that they had pulled out. Venus was not happy to find that the girl had performed her tasks so well. For a final task,s he gave Pysche a box, and told her to go to see Proserpine, wife of Hades, God of the underworld, and ask for a little of her beauty. Pyshce travelled to the underworld and met the Queen of the dead, who gave her a box, commanding her not to open it. Psyche travelled out of hell again, but on her way, felt that she had worked so hard for so long that she deserved some reward. She thought to open the box and take a little of the beauty out for her own use. However, when she opened the box she found instead that what lay inside was a deathly sleep, and she collapsed on the ground. By this time Cupid had recovered from his wound, and was sorry he had left Pysche in such a manner. He sought out to find her, and discovered her laying as if dead. He went to her, brushed away the sleep from her body, and embraced her again. While Psyche brought the box to Venus as requested, Cupid went to the Gods and pleaded for their help. After hearing his tale, the Gods agreed to make Psyche one of their own. She was given a cup of ambrosia to drink, to make her an immortal, and butterfly wings so that she might fly alongside her husband.
