Myths

Postby waechter418 » Sat Oct 05, 2019 1:28 am

Myth:
an invented story, idea or concept - an imaginary or fictitious thing or person - (Oxford dictionary)

Mind is the mother imagination – imagination is the mother of myths.

Myths are sustained by belief.

The lifespan of myths depends on the faith of their beholders.

In order to survive, myths devise supporting myths, or update their terminologies. Thus (for example) genesis turns into genetics, god into big bang and Homo into Sapiens, who covers the manipulations with evolution myths.
(Apropos: survival concepts are myths too.)

Most religious- moral- social- political- economical and historical myths are to bind collectives - yet, there are also plenty of myths concerning mind and body, and probably more about Life & Death.

Fantasy can make the world spin around a lot more, add prophecy and futuristic overhauls to the legendary fabric of plot weaving and timeline cruising. It enriches life, makes existence more wondrous, alive, and free. No fairytales or happy endings in a golden sunset would doom everything to death and betrayal.

Lugia was very serious, reflective, contemplating life's eternal mysteries. He was introspective, enflamed by inner fragrance and beaming council. He was rattling with psychic auroras, being divined by the inner white secrets. He was extremely innocent, yet wise, encompassing the most splendid qualities of valor, imagination, polarities, and extremities, but loved life more than anything, for all of its kaleidoscopes of talismans, transformations, trinkets, and plunder.

I was the Ubermensch, deep, profound, thoughtful, and contemplative. I understood ancient mysteries, hieroglyphics of mystical proportions, mania, and exaltation above the flame of divinity. Channeling exotic psychic energies Primed My Soul for luminous revelation, soulfully touching the Bunny Aether, and zooming those exploding lights into gargantuan proportions.

And then there are, what may be called, the EGO myths which are to embellish and to elevate somebody - as for example Sapiens who, being borne 1850 into the Homo family in Sweden, rose – with the support of the enlightenment movement and its scientific followers – to the crown of creation, supreme of mankind, ruler of the earth, and in order to enforce this myth, backdated his origin 350 000 years into an East African Savannah.

Sing the song brother. It's got a sort of snappy beat.
