Several millennia ago, when the ancient Greeks still worshipped their gods — Zeus, Apollo, Athene and the other Olympians — the mortals were warned not to defy the gods, or demonstrate inflated pride against them. This was called hubris, and several mortals did, in fact, defy the gods and they suffered from their bloated pride. Oedipus was one of them.
