And when I mention the Eucharist scene as the opposite of Hyacinthus' story, I mean that in terms of the Catholic ceremony itself: bread and wine made from grapes transform into flesh and blood. This time it's the actual ceremony's import that is resonating: vegetative substance becoming flesh and blood, involved with consumption. The story of Apollo and Hyacinthus is the opposite, blood becomes a flower and lives on. Continued existence through transformation. Though man dies something else that is his essence lives on.

Big difference. I have tried to look at the size of Mars but wow I like biological sciences, I tend to tune out a bit when astronomical things come up in my reading. It is possible to figure out Blue's size from short and long sun ...
