Pardon the flakiness; I am reading Heidegger’s Introduction to Metaphysics:
If a titan is a god who cannot imagine he is not God, what is a titaness?
First proposed answer: “Someone who cannot imagine that anyone is a god, or the reality of God?”
I am tempted to try to jam it into an analogous structure: A titaness is a goddess who cannot imagine the possibility of God?
Follow-on comment: “A titaness would not even be aware that she is a goddess. She is asleep to her own divinity.”
Another: Where a titan believes the world is here for him to act upon as he wishes, a titaness believes the world is here to act upon her (or toward her) as she wishes.
