Recent overviews dealt with EXCRETIONS per LIP, MOUTH, SALIVA, THROAT, ESOPHAGUS, ABDOMEN, BELLY, STOMACH and LIVER. What follows concerns the NEPHROS, KIDNEY or RENAL organs producing URINE and study subjects of NEPHROLOGY and UROLOGY. 

Nereids,Thetis and Neptune holding a Trident and riding a Quadriga to meet with Centaurs. 

It may surprise some that KIDney may share roots with KID and that NEPhrology shares roots with NEPtne. Regardless, it is clear that to fully grasp "water making", mention of NEPTUNE or POSEIDON is in order because NEPTUNIAN stands for "formed by water action" as is the case with URINE. SATurated URines point to SATurn and URanus. In mythology, Uranus, Pluto and Saturn have similar missions - to SATurate humans with wealth or OURON or ORO - Spanish for gold. When SATURN, PLUTO and URANUS succeed beyond moderation, mortals SATURated with Aurum or gold create POLUTOcracies - akin to those who rule US Banks "too big to fail". "Shining dawn" or aurum in Latin and "Golden rain" that seduced Danae, have captured many imaginations. Uranus or rather Ouranos for "Father Sky" in essence stands for fertilizing rain which perhaps may imply his "orina" like "oro" - Spanish for urine and gold.

The mother of Poseidon was RHEA or CYBELE from whom FLow all goods and is the source of RHEOlogy or the science concerned with the FLow of FLuids. From CHRONus, the father of Poseidons, FLow ideas in CHRONology and CHRONic.

The State emblem of Ukraine
Poseidon with Trident

The symbol of Poseidon is a trident. Russian Nationalists and Communist extremist see in the Trident as an emblem for a Ukraine liberated from Moscovy or the Russian Empire. During the Boshevik-Soviet rule, it was mandated to remove the trident from depictions of Neptune - today, in Lviv, Ukraine, a Napute without a trident is preserved as a remidner of the persisiting "Russification" efforts to destroy other nationalities that currently are ruled by the Russian Federation.   

Neptune and his spouse Amphitrite

NERka, the Ukrainian word for KIDNEY, suggest a link with NEReus, NEReids and NEPtune. NEReus fathered many NEReides and one of them, Amphitrite, became the spouse of Poseidon. Nereides in "old rus" or Ukraine are called RUSalki. The pedigree of NEPtune, NEPhrology, URine and UkRaine is convoluted but the closeness of such relationships is underscored by the naming of two adjoining new elements URANIUM and NEPtunium.  

URine and its roots in OURon also apply to UDRA or HYDRA found in HYDROGEN and in Latin UNDA for WAVE. OURanus or URANUS  not only stood for fertilizing rain but also for WATER. In Sanskrit VARSHA and VARI point to RAIN, WASH, WATER, VODA and VODKA which in Ukrainian link water with a water like "fire water".

More extensions emerge from the Greek root OUREIN or ORINA in Spanish toward URINE, URETER and  URETHRA. The  OUREIN flows from the NERKA or NEPHROS in Ukrainian and Greek for KIDNEY into the RENAL PELVIS or CALYX or CALYCES, terms pointing toward CHALICE, CUP or VASE or PELUIS, PELUX or PALAVI in Latin, Greek and Sanskri. From there,, the urine flows via the URETERS toward  the urinary bladder and finally to the URETHRA and MEATUS to the exterior. 
MEATUS signifies "opening" and is surrounded by a voluntary sphincter. In Spanish MEAR or MICCION have the same meaning as the Greek root OUREIN or MICTURITION or in vernacular terms "to urinate" or "to piss".

Meatus and Micturition

To MEAr implies to open the MEAtus and to void a SATURated or full URInary bladder through the UREthra. Other related terms to OUREIN such as UREA, UREMIA, URACHUS, DYSURIA, ANURIA and DIURESIS  are the subject of notes and comments found through links shown in the list on the left. Also note ideas pointing to SATURN, SATURate, SATURdays and to kindred deities like NEPtune linked with NEPHrology.
