Greek epics & Bible radiate ethos (communal values).

Tragedy, Iliad, Odyssey - hubris & selfishness are actions/consequences which are transparent, in a certain sense : like forces of nature to the disinterested observer.

Solon translates ethos into democratic politics.

Ethos = mutual aid = balance = sobornost = peace & prosperity.

(Athens/Jerusalem) - ancient symbol of psychic wholeness. (AlephoeBooks : name of my "publishing house" : after the kids, Alex & Phoebe.) Human/divine coordination.
