Man existed until the days of Homer, but perhaps without realizing that behind the face of man there is something deeper and stronger than the sun that extinguishes the darkness. That in his veins flows the essence of gods of omnipotence that can bestow upon him the power of either destruction or creation.
Man can become a beast or a doctor who offers healing, a dogmatic who sees into a black hole or a free light giver who pushes the world forward with the power of imagination. That's exactly what Homer did, and even though they don't teach it in schools, he took the ephemeral man and made him eternal.
Odysseus wove into history the matter and the spirit, his inherent weakness and his hard strength, his imperfections and his determination, and showed the way to the perfect man. As perfect as man can be. Ithaca is not just a journey, it is the constant effort of consciousness to remain human and not to mutate into a monster.
