I control the world, almost but not
my father has lost something entirely

I was known before I was born
I contain both the living and the unliving

I have a granddaughter who knows everything
not everyone trusts her, but is still well known and loved

The apparatus of conception is what made me grow
And I still continue to grow


Hint #1

What my father has lost, makes him shine
He is not a star but wants to be among them


Hint #2

I was born in a bubble
and my father has sad origin


Hint #3

I was not a man and not referred to as man-made in ancient times
Today it can be said I am man-made, and man-destroyed, but not in the same place

Is it

Cronos?

I control the world, almost but not

Cronos ate all of his children except Zeus, god of the gods in the Greek mythology. Also, Cronos is the leader of the first generation of Titans.

my father has lost something entirely

Cronos emasculated his father Ouranos

I was known before I was born

Ouranos originally contained his 12 children in his spouse's entrails Chronos is often associated with his paronym Chronos, divinity of time. Time existed with space before anything else

I contain both the living and the unliving

Cronos took his father's leader spot and was also considered as leader of the immortals (hence unliving)? Also, death doesn't escape time so I guess we can consider the living and unliving to belong to time

I have a granddaughter who knows everything

not everyone trusts her, but is still well known and loved

One of his granddaughters is the goddess of love, Aphrodite. Not everyone trust love yet almost everyone aspires to get it

The apparatus of conception is what made me grow

And I still continue to grow

Time doesn't exist if we're not conscious of it, and according to the Big Bang theory, time and space continue to expand

  • $\begingroup$ Agreed, but the last part is more like about time continuing, doesn't need to involve any lack-of-imagination-stuff like "big pew thing". $\endgroup$ – Overmind Apr 12 at 12:52
  • $\begingroup$ This is just my scientific rigor speaking here, space and time expansion induced by the Big Bang (which explains why time goes on) is still a theory ;) $\endgroup$ – avazula Apr 12 at 12:54
  • $\begingroup$ Would be nice to have a philosophical debate about that time part, but it's not the place in this comment section. $\endgroup$ – Overmind Apr 12 at 12:56

    $\begingroup$ You're on the right track regarding it being mentioned Greek mythology. But it is not a myth. $\endgroup$ – Mel Apr 13 at 3:09
