To be in part or wholly godly, both physically and spiritually, has ever been ultimate ideal goal for any aspiring homo sapiens.
To encapsulate, epitomize, the characteristics, foibles, of an immortal, a celestial being, is to court great attention, the possibility of immense power and influence, to hold oneself and be held by others in great esteem, or equally and opposingly in mighty derision, dependent on taste and any moral or ethical compass.
