In Greek mythology, Icarus (the Latin spelling, conventionally adopted in English; Ancient Greek: Ἴκαρος, Íkaros, Etruscan: Vikare) is the son of the master craftsman Daedalus, the creator of the Labyrinth built for King Minos of Crete near his palace at Knossos (knowledge). Often depicted in art, Icarus and his father attempt to escape from Crete by means of wings that his father constructed from feathers and wax. Icarus’s father warns him first of complacency and then of hubris, asking that he fly neither too low nor too high, so the sea’s dampness would not clog his wings or the sun’s heat melt them. Icarus ignored his father’s instructions not to fly too close to the sun, whereupon the wax in his wings melted and he fell into the sea. This tragic theme of failure at the hands of hubris contains similarities to that of Phaëthon.

This is telling the story of a father who knew the map of this place, the metaphor for the Labyrinth in Knossis (knowledge), for the Minotaur (ego – beast in our mind, the inner satan), and artificially bestowed enlightenment upon his son, there by teaching him the secret. The crete he is escaping from is a metaphor for human lower consciousness, we use another metaphor today, concrete, means in Latin with Crete (Con-crete). The wings are a metaphor for Christ Consciousness.The sea he is referring to is the Red sea who’s boundaries are patrolled by Lilith and her demons. Complacency (sloth) and hubris (pride) are deadly sins, and having been in Knossis, Icarus’ faher was aware of the dangers.
