Protogenoi The first born of the immortals, who formed the very fabric of the universe, were known in Greek mythology as the Protogenoi (protos meaning "first," and genos "born"). They were, for the most part, purely elemental beings - Uranus was the literal sky, Gaea the body of the earth, etc. A few of them were ocassionally described or portrayed in anthropomorphic form, however these forms were inevitably inseperable from their native element. For example Gaea or Thalassa might appear as a woman half risen from the earth or sea. AETHER (Aither) The Protogenos of the mists of light which fill the upper zones of air.

Analemma In astronomy , an ( / ˌ æ n ə ˈ l ɛ m ə / ; from Greek ἀνάλημμα "pedestal of a sundial ") is a curve representing the changing angular offset of a celestial body (usually the Sun ) from its on the celestial sphere as viewed from another celestial body (usually the Earth). The term is used when the observed body appears, as seen from the viewing body, to move in a way that is repeated at regular intervals, such as once a year or once a day. The analemma is then a closed curve, which does not change. Because of the Earth's annual revolution around the Sun in an orbit that is elliptical and tilted relative to the plane of the equator, an observer at a fixed point on the Earth sees the Sun appear to move in an analemma around a mean position, taking a year to do so. The mean position appears to revolve around the Earth once every mean solar day , because of the Earth's rotation. This daily revolution is not considered to be averaged out to get the mean.
