> Because you're not sure what exactly Atlas/Hercules is supposed to be holding up. Is it the dimension of "space" around Olympus? Is it the actual entire "universe"? Is he holding up Eternity? Why? That doesn't make sense.
> To me this feat is the same as Thor's lifting of the Midgard Serpent. There's no way to quantify what the feat entails. It is a literal lifting of physical mass? Or is it a metaphorical? Or some combo of both?

yeah, I agree. I think it is more of a spiritual representation. I mean Altas is a god, and magic probably comes into play somehow. Although not shown, I do believe there is more to the scan that just simply "holding up the heavens".
