In mythology, semi-god, semi-human Prometheus was a designer and the fire he brought to humans was the design ability, the ability to create good goods like gods. Today he is ashamed to feel semi-this and semi-that, that he is bringing the fire back to gods with a job application in his hands. By sacrificing the human side, he thinks that he will be accepted among gods. It’s no good!
