The Oracle of Delphi by swo8 Blues Jazz from the album Efharisto in iTunes

This video is about the Oracle of Delphi by swo8 Blues Jazz from the album Efharisto in iTunes. Delphi was built on the slopes of Mt. Parnassus overlooking the Gulf of Corinth. It housed the Treasuries of Knidos, Thebes, Siphons and Sikyon and the Temple of Apollo. It also has a Theatre and Stadium. It is roughly an hours drive west of Athens. It is here that people would hopefully come to see their future. The Oracle was a priestess over the age of 50. She would sit on a tripod near the entrance to a chasm that was emitting fumes. Her answers, to the questions that were submitted to her, were often ambiguous and even unintelligible. People would approach her with matters of the heart, business issues and matters of war to mention a few. I had a lot of fun with this one. 3:33 min 2 MB

    • These photos are authentic and the Oracle of Delphi was ascribed to have special powers. People would come to her with questions much like in the song and she would answer but not in a direct manner.
      Thank you for listening Mariag.

    • The photos were taken by me while we were at Delphi. The Oracle did exist but it is thought that her readings were inspired by fumes escaping from deep within the earth at the temple. Also her readings were mostly open for interpretation. A lot of people look for answers to their problems, but answers usually lie within us not some Oracle .
