Here flying is the son of Icarus, Modestus. A Sun Children. He kept the dream, but also, learnt from his father’s mistakes. For so he safely flew aaaaall around the Sun! Oh boy, I wish many more will start learning from their past mistakes.
In Greek mythology, Icarus was the son of the architect and master craftsman Daedalus, the creator of the Minoataur Labyrinth, for the famous king Minos around 3500 BC. For his shake the entire era was called Minoan Crete and lasted more than 1500 years. Located on the island of Crete in today's Greece, the Minoan Civiization was the first complex civilization of Europe, and the originator of the Greek Alphabet, which became the basis for all latin languages. Icarus and Daedalus, though, attempted to escape from Crete. And since the island of Crete is hundred of kilometers away from land, the mater craftsman Daedalus constructed from feathers and wax, human size wings. So they could fly out of Crete. Then his son Icarus, was ready for taking the big journey to liberation. His father Daedalus warns him of complacency and then of hubris, instructing him to fly neither too low nor too high, lest the sea's dampness clog his wings, or, the sun's heat melt them. Icarus ignores Daedalus’s instructions not to fly too close to the sun, causing the wax in his wings to melt. He tumbles out of the sky, falls into the sea, and drowns.
In the picture above, the son of Icarus, Modestus, flies all safe coz he learnt from his father's mistake. The Sun Children Modestus kept the dream, but also, learnt from his father’s mistakes. For so he safely flew aaaaall around the Sun! Oh boy, I wish many more will start learning from their past mistakes.

WHO ARE THE SUN CHILDREN?
FEAR THE MOB. rESPECT OPINIONS DIFFERENT THAN YOURS.

I personally don’t mind much if the herd follows blindly what the TV tells them to. Their free choice. What really bothers me and also saddens me, is when the herd transforms into fanatics. Will the majority ever learn NOT to enforce their opinions and fears? Fear the mob.
