I think it means never mind, but I'm not sure.

Regarding Hypatia and the movie Agora, you need to realize that it's just a movie and is not entirely accurate.   :)

She wasn't sentenced to death, she was killed by a mob of zealots who hated her perceived alliance with an opposing political figure.

According to clock time and calendar time the approval of threads may seem to be long delayed, but in sacred time it is always near at hand, always imminent.
