For everyone to understand whats going on in the BB house Pandora’s Box has been opened! Here is what the box really means! Remember in the bottom there lays hope! will it save Jeff?
In Greek mythology, Pandora’s box is the large jar (πιθος pithos) carried by Pandora (Πανδώρα) that unleashed many evils on mankind – ills, toils and sickness – and hope.
Opening of the “box”
After Prometheus’ theft of the secret of fire, Zeus ordered Hephaestus to create the woman Pandora as part of the punishment for mankind. Pandora was given many seductive gifts from Aphrodite, Hermes, Hera, Charites, and Horae (according to Works and Days). For fear of additional reprisals, Prometheus warned his brother Epimetheus not to accept any gifts from Zeus, but Epimetheus did not listen, and married Pandora. Pandora had been given a large jar and instruction by Zeus to keep it closed, but she had also been given the gift of curiosity, and ultimately opened it. When she opened it, all of the evils, ills, diseases, and burdensome labor that mankind had not known previously, escaped from the jar, but it is said, that at the very bottom of her box, there lay hope.
There is no reason to think Pandora acted out of malice in opening the jar, for she was exercising her curiosity, and when she saw what was let out of it, she quickly closed it.Want to be part of the free Big Brother Diary Room? Details here on how to join.
