Nemesis was the goddess of divine retribution and revenge in Greek mythology. She was born the daughter of Nyx and Erebus, while in some versions she is said to be the daughter of Zeus or Oceanus. She was considered the equivalent of divine retribution and was the personification of equilibrium being dealt out within mortals to ensure that happiness and unhappiness came in equal amounts. She was usually considered a deity that was of the punishing nature and remorseless when dealing with the affairs at hand.
“«Sai che “lunatico”, alla lettera, significa “colpito dalla luna?”
La gente credeva che la luna rendesse pazzi. Una cosa logica, se ci pensi, dal momento che la luna governa le maree e l’ottanta per cento del corpo umano è costituito da acqua.»”
