When the earth was still flat and clouds made of fire and mountains stretched up to the sky sometimes higher….folks roamed the earth like big rolling kegs they had two sets of arms they had two sets of legs they had two faces peering, out of one giant head so they could watch all around them as they talked while they read and they never knew nothing of love, it was before the origin of love.

In Plato’s Symposium Aristophanes describes original humans as being whole the children of the sun, being two men joined the children of the earth, being two women joined and, the children of the moon being man and woman joined. They wanted for nothing, they were content and whole as them self and through their contentment they grew powerful and wise. This upset the gods, who became jealous the gods wanted to destroy them but Zeus decided to cripple them, he sent lightning bolts to split them in two and forever since they have been looking for their other half.
