The Hydra’s Leash
Metaphorical An unsubstantiated tool used by Zeus to tame the many heads of the hydra. Mentioned only once in a torn fragment of Eumenides’s The Secret Voyage:
A leash with many collars. A thousand. A million. One hundred days in length. I guess we’ll see where we are once we get there.
In Psychology The liminal space shared by group of common thinkers when the mood and cloud of despair rides hard upon them all.
