“According to Greek Mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves.”

Plato’s The Symposium

 

The atomic stardust that constructed the planets
Runs deep through the roots of all trees
And glistens amongst sand and swims in the oceans,
And was thrown into the sky with the breeze
The miniscule grains dug their way into mountains
And gave them their everlasting strength,
It created mythological creatures and the almighty gods
Fabricated religion and faith,
Stardust danced through the air and formed human bones
Making bodies with two heads and eight limbs
But the gods could foresee the danger of such creations
And so flew down to separate all the twins,
Now the new humans of Earth, they struggled to balance
On two legs instead of all four,
And were condemned to travel across unexplored distances
In search of their other half to whom they were sworn
