Cassandra should never be out of her mind. It’s been corrupting Apollo’s gift for ages. It has been making her err for as long. And made all of us pay a heavy price. All that because of Cassandra’s meanness – and Apollo’s wrath..
[excerpt from] The Trouble With Mass Delusions — Zero Hedge :
” Interestingly, many delusions relate to war.
” At the beginning of World War I, there was a widespread misconception that the war would be over in months. In hindsight, this delusion was fueled by a deep misunderstanding, among citizens and military experts alike, of the impact that evolving technology would have on modern warfare…
“ Economics also provides its share of delusions, including the debt-fueled bubbles of both the 1920s stock market and the first dotcom boom…
” Of course, at the time not everyone held the same deluded views, but the disbelievers were (and always are) discredited, demoralized and ignored while the delusions were alive.” — The Trouble With Mass Delusions — Zero Hedge

We know the origins of that spell : Apollo is in love with Cassandra, he bestows a fantastic gift on her : she will predicts the future and she’ll always be right.
Then, Apollo asks Cassandra to go to bed with him. The mean little brat refuses.
Apollo punishes her by adding a terrible spell to the gift he’s just bestowed on her:
In short : Hell for you, mean little bitch!
Since then, the gods play Apollo’s spell game, and Cassandra wants to play Apollo’s gift game against and despite Apollo’s spell. But she can’t. Apollo is stronger than Cassandra.
Cassandra would always be right but because nobody ever believe her she’s constantly out of her mind. That rage constitutes the deluding maya over Cassandra’s mind and soul.
Sure, she should never be out of her mind : It hinders the gift and makes her err. But that’s the spell. Maybe it would recede if she’d just cool down..? Or simply accept to make love with Apollo. But Cassandra is a woman, an hyper-hypergamic one at that, Apollo isn’t enough for her..
Sad hypergamic story. Damn !! Apollo wanted to beget Cassandra a demi-god. Nothing less. After he had given her a fantastic gift. A wonder. Cassandra was mean enough to take the gift and go away, to reject Apollo, to abort (so to speak) giving birth to a demi-god. Or goddess. Twins gods, maybe.
Apollo went away. Cassandra had made a fool of herself. She still does. Since then, we are all deprived of very important knowledge on our destiny. We err in this world, from disaster to disaster. We’ve all become victim of Cassandra’s meanness and narrowmindedness. As well as an indirect victim of the Sun’s power.
PS : The intricacies of Cassandra’s destiny and complex is so rich, I didn’t even scratch the surface with this billet. For instance, Cassandra’s story has much to do with the nature and roots of the female animus, as described by Carl G. Jung.
