The Garden, she noticed upon first touching the earth, was too small. The walls pressed in, too tall and too dark. She felt the grass under her feet, soft and new and unharmed, not a single blade broken. Winds blew through the Garden, and then past it. They said to her: feed us. Follow us into the desert. Walk next to us, carry nothing but the sun with you. But when she turned her face to the sun God said, you would turn your back on this man, and for what? But she did not see a man; she saw only what Mattered and what Did Not Matter. She saw the grass, broken only under Adam’s feet, and she saw the sky. The sun. The mercury-still mirror of the lake. She saw herself. And she turned to face God and said in a voice louder than He had given her: to walk, Lord, free of the chains you would have me wear. To walk.
Hey it’s Haney your honey ✨
Today is June 20th
June 20th was an average work day for myself. But I kept smiling away. I was exhausted physically and mentally. I ended up being my clumsy self and forgetting my glasses so it was particularly hard for myself. But the people there were very kind. Despite me thinking I look like a tired potato 🥔 people said I looked so cheerful and pretty. Little things like that slightly make me feel better, I won’t lie. It was just another day another dollar. I’m working hard towards saving for my next travel trip. Hopefully it goes well. I hope you smiled a million times today and laughed. Life’s too short to not enjoy it. If it was a rough day it’s alright. Tomorrow will be better if you keep a positive attitude.
mercury darts quickest around the sun, an expression of gemini and virgo’s rapid traveling mental acuity. their startling wit and comedy reflects the ability to speed up common sense and observation. these signs are interested in facts, details, and knowledge. they are interested because mercury is so easily bored. the difference is awareness, self analysis, and control. virgo knows when and how to hold the tongue. gemini has the drunk tongue, letting thoughts tumble and slip out without forethought. gemini is mercury disinhibited. virgo is mercury refined and considering. and this reflects the changeable nature of mercury, the archetype that mirrors, adapts, and glides effortlessly between dimensions of consciousness

Thing that I noticed and mid-theories in BTS- Blood sweat and tears mv
In Greek mythology Daedalus was a
. He had a son Icarus. Once Daedalus built wings from feathers and wax. Father and his son were testing out new vehicle. Icarus was too enthusiastic and he flight too high, warmth of the Sun melted the wax and he fell down and died from the fall.
Now the question how it is connected to BTS? First of all- WINGS. The series of short films with the title “Wings” and motive that was used in them.
Second. The paintings.
Landscape with the Fall of Icarus
Pieter Bruegel the Elder. We see it in the scene of Taehyung jumping off the balcony.
The Lament for Icarus by
Herbert James Draper. It is located in the room with Jungkook on the swing.
Further in the mv, when boys are running out of the ‘museum’, Jin stops and is looking back on something. Then Taehyung comes to him and covers Jins’ eyes. Now we can see some
someone covered in some kind of curtain. The curtain rises and shows off kneeling Taehyung with revealed remains of wings on his back.
After this we see what Jin sees after Tae uncovers Jins’ eyes. We see a statue of man with black wings. The statue probably just appeared because it isn’t visible earlier in the mv. Jin comes to the statue and kisses it.
It is possible that Taehyung is compared to Icarus or even is a Icarus. He was also carried by emotions (I need you mv, where he killed his father or his sisters’ boyfriend). And his reaction was a reason of his failure.
Jin might be a equivalent
of Daedalus. He gently kisses a statue (of Taehyung?) as a sign of
mourning. In the mv we also could see a midified version of Pieta by Michaleangelo. Which shows Virgin Mary with dead Jesus Chris on her lap. Both the myth and the Pieta in some ways shows a suffering of parent after losing own child.
The thing I’m completely clueless about is why the figure of Jesus in mv is unfinished. It still looks kind of like raw stone.Maybe is it because of things that wasn’t finished during the lifetime? Because Christ died when he almost finished his mission on Earth so the statue in the mv isn’t finished like his?
2. Fallen Angel
Jin is here looking at the painting named The Fall of the Rebel Angelsby
Pieter Bruegel the Elder. Painting shows two Biblical scenes from the beginning and end of the world.
- exile of rebel angels from Heaven. Which in the Bible is the first fight between good and evil.
- Archangel Michael killing a seven headed dragon. In Book of Revelation there are described two beasts. One that “rise up out of the sea,
having seven heads and ten horns”. The appearance of second is pretty much unknown.
Going back to fallen angels. As we all know angels have wings. The most stereotypical image of angel is a beautiful human with wings and blonde hair. Which one of our boys has both? Yep, Taehyung. Maybe
is Tae some kind of fallen angel? He already shown his
roguish and rebellious
side in I need you mv, Run mv and his Stigma short film.
There is one more thing about Pieter Bruegel, one of his most famous works is
The Seven Deadly Sins and The Virtues. He did a series of allegories of grotesque sinners and virtues with odd headpieces.
Which reminds me of Jins’ teaser photos. It is also possible that Jin and Taehyung are
3. Kain and Abel. Adam and Eve.
Again the Bible. Adam and Eve were the first humans. But because of Satans’ trap they were exiled from paradise. Satan in the form of snake convinced Eve to eat a fruit from the forbidden tree.In many versions this fruit was an apple.
In this case Jimin is the figure of Eve. And Adam, maybe it’s J-Hope? Because they were together in hospital or Yoongi because their short films were connected.
Kain and Abel. They were brothers, long story short Kain killed his brother. After the murder Kain was stigmatized. Again Tahyungs’ short film title was Stigma. Also a loud thing across ARMYS. Demian by Herman Hesse. Book that is a large part of some theories. One chapter of it “Kain”. Main character was talking with Demian about Kain and misunderstanding of his figure. Demian claimed that Kain probably hadn’t killed his brother, but people scared of his stigma were talking behind his back and that is how the story was created.
Another important part of the plot is the way of understanding the world by the main character. Sinclair always was seeing world as two parts: good and evil. At the beginning he was part of the good side but as the time passed he slowly became part of dark side. At first by mistakes of youth. Sounds familiar?
4. Perseus and Medusa.
See this little guy on the left?
This is him. His name is Perseus and he just killed the Medusa.
This poor girl was turned into a Gorgon (human with snake hair, that could turn a living creature into a stone just by making an eye contact with it) by jealous goddes. He defeated her using a winged shoes of Mercury and mirrored shield. Even after death her gaze was so powerful that it stayed in mirror of shield. It still could petrify.
In past short films there was the image of mirror. In one of past theories I saw that broken glass or mirror symbolizes broken promises. In case of BTS it was RapMonster and Taehyung.
In the mv there is also breakage in the mirror, but this time it’s Jin. His face break a few seconds after the face on Virgin Mary on Pieta. Another comparison?
In a couple of short films there was this picture of woman holding a child. Probably mother with her child. Also look at Jin in past mvs like Run or in Prologue. He was taking care of boys, driving the car, taking photos etc. Kind of like a loving mother would. Another little thing is that J-Hopes’ short film was named Mama.
One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.“
The meaning of this quote is something like you must stay in chaos, push yourself to the limits to become a better version of you (the dancing star).
In my opinion this could mean that boys had been pushing themselves to the edge, risking almost everything to repair the mistakes of their past. To get out of the labyrinth of mistakes (Forever young mv).
Eden is a biblical garden of peace, a paradise. It was the garden that Adam and Eve was banished from. There are two scenes in the mv. One with all the boys sitting at the table, and second only Jin is there and he’s standing on the table.
♥♥♥ I know it was messy but I hope you understood my path of thinking. ♥♥♥
edit. I forgot about adding one thing. The number seven. There is seven members, dragon had a seven heads and there is seven deadly sins.
