Pronounced “Lee Thee.” Lethe was one of the five rivers of the afterlife in Classical Greek Mythology. It was said that passing between lives, human souls drank from her waters to erase their memories in preparation for their rebirth. Socrates said that souls had to have the wisdom to drink enough to forget, but not so much that they forgot everything, for philosophy is the remembering of what the soul always knew.
