GAIA the Greek Goddess of the Earth, was mother to all the Gods according to the ancient Greeks. In the beginning there was only Chaos, out of which there appeared Gaia they taught, who gave birth to more than fifty symbolic deities.
In Gaia’s role as mother to the Gods, and employing many fathers, she gave birth to numerous entities, for example Python, Antaeus, Ceto, Charybdis, Echidna, Creusa, Erichthonius, Eurybia, Typhon — who may have represented the titanic formative and creative forces of Earth’s early history.
The ancients were fond of personifying the natural forces in nature and man, and for good reason.
Nature was conscious, as Theosophy teaches, and is “in reality an aggregate of forces manipulated by semi-intelligent beings guided by High Planetary Spirits.”
