    • Title: The Post-Modern Prometheus
      The title is a homage to Mary Shelley's famous book Frankenstein - which is actually titled Frankenstein: Or the Modern Prometheus.
      From Greek mythology, Prometheus was a demi-god who made men out of clay, and is probably best remembered as being the one who stole fire from Olympus and taught mortal men how to use it - an act that got him punished by Zeus. His punishment was to be chained to a rock and to have an eagle eat his liver every day.
