Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


Vyasa narrated the Promethean feats of the Pandavas against the mighty army of the Kauravas, insofar as his eidetic powers allowed him, employing anthimeria to add to his articulation, rendering 'Krishna' a verb wherever Vyasa meant 'outwit by whatever means necessary'. (by QuaQua)


An eidetic memory is no guarantee of Promethean visual creativity, insofar as the ability to remember any image perfectly leaves a painter no impetus to anthimeria his recollections, horizoning foregrounds, blueing greens, opaqueing transparencies, and crookeding straights.    (by Rudi)


Obviously having remembered that, alone among the cousins, I did not like orange juice with my breakfast, Aunt Joan directed me anthimerially to "sit in the apple juice seat", which she had set directly opposite a photorealist painting of Prometheus having his liver eaten by the eagle, prompting me to wonder yet again where Richard Estes had ever seen an eagle eating a living man's liver, insofar as hyperrealist painters are widely supposed to rely on eidetic memory. (by cusheamus)


Jack's Promethean creativity in producing eidetic images of the bucolic country life is only good insofar as he did not overuse anthimeria in his writings. (by Blackbird)


I flashback my Promethean skill: Insofar as (enchained, feeling ill) I accessed anthimeria (Noun verbed, how superior) —Eidetic eye, see, there's the thrill! (by Et Seqq)
