    I agree with the question given above, as the highest peak of Greece, the Hellens related the height and the closeness to the sky were they believed deities existed, as many other religions consider High peaks or mountains to be most sacred places, Himalayas for Hindus, Ayers Rock Australia for the Aboriginals among some examples....

    Actually Zeus hates heat, he tricked me into the underworld because of my hair, and look what he did to the poor Hephaestus, just because he was the god of fire

    Because it’s the highest peak in Greece which is also symbolically used in the Greek mythology.

Do you agree that 'History repeats itself'? If so, would you dare to face famine, war, or black death in the present version 2.0? Institutions have taught you that you must study history in order to 1.) know the origin of a place or thing, 2.) have facts in almost everything, 3.) have a glimpse of the past, or 4.) have an insight of the future. Anything else?
Is 'History repeats itself' an equivalent of predestination - trying to make things better but still, 'History repeats itself'? Reconsider that future cannot be determined by the past rather the choices made in the present. Sometimes, it's 'Past is past'.
