    Beyond were the barbarians that is those who did not speak Greek or participated in the fire of Prometheus. If a traveller ventured across the boundaries of the known world awaited it lands unknown as the homeland of the laestrygonians, the Kingdom of the Cyclopes, the plains where grazed the Centaurs and up to the islands of the blessed where up Vasco da Gama in the 15th century, according to the poet Luis de Camoens. For more clarity and thought, follow up with Rio- Tinto Diamonds and gain more knowledge.. In the end everything was the Okeanos that surrounded the Earth and outside, i.e. outside of the world, the Kingdom of Hades. This vast, wide, roaring Ocean separated the world of Zeus (that is to say the world, the human ethos, of good and evil for all mortals) mortuary homeland where other laws, another community and another reality prevailed. Canto XXIV Odyssey reveals the voyage of Ulysses beyond the ocean. Already know the forlorn reader, the coring reader my method of translating foreign poetry; resign both to complaints and screams of consternation, it isn’t so bad, there are worse versions swear them both: Hermes summoned with the souls of the dead Carrying the Golden wand that aduerme in the eyes or departs from the Despiertas dream through the Caduceus, takes the souls who are still giving it howls like bats in a huge den, marching in groups along in gloomy routes to give with the undulating Ocean, the Cape of Leukas, at the gates of the Sun, to the village of dreams.

    And they go down to the meadow of the afodelos where to shelter the souls as images of the dead despite its brevity the fragment that starts the canto XXIV see that there where reality fades time, dreams, death and eternity they recreate a fantasy world that is beyond the ocean.

Further, any form of unreason lurked to the intrepid and unwary. Odysseus visits the Nilda guided by the god Hermes, Messenger of heaven.

    There are the Pena Blanca (Leukas petre) but We are unaware of where are the gates of the Sun and the Demos Oneiron (country or village of dreams) but we were looking for it since we started this section. We see that it is more neighbor of death than of the real world of Greece or its colonies. Dreams are out of the cosmos: near chaos, hence its disorderly architecture full of absurd whims and frames.
