Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched.

"This is going to sound so hokey, but I feel like any problem in the world in my opinion, is probably rooted in a lack of compassion. You can disagree; we don’t have to think the same, but just a sense of compassion for other people. It’s the gas, the fuel behind conflict resolve, and a lot of times when I see it, my personal opinion in politics, foreign affairs, is just this general lack of compassion for other people’s struggles, other people’s opinions. So, if I could somehow infuse that, that would be the power." - Chris Evans on a superpower and how he would use it
