Etymology Already a decade ago the second author sent some of his amphipods collected as by-catch in Polynesia: high time to order, separate, remove respectively tackle the accumulated projects. Kairos is the Greek god for the Latin aphorism by Horace of ‘carpe diem’, for ‘seize the day’: he has a big curl on his forehead, but is bald on the back of his head, symbolizing that one can cling on to him only when being in front or beside him, but not when he is already gone. [details]
