Transcript of Myths
What is it?
How do they come into existence?
Who makes them and who propogates?
How similar or different are they across cultures?
Evolving myths and cultural translation
What they talk about?
Myths in general carry a moral in them.
A majority of the myths of creation reflect on how the first sin that man did led to the existence of death and created the divide of mortals and immortals.
Similarly, references of infidelity, manipulation and conceit can be observed across all cultures.
The sinners paid for their sins and the benefitters lived immortally. Different means existed to attain immortality that were breached time and again by the people in these stories.
THE BIG QUESTION !
Literally defined as changes in inherited characterstics, evolution can be witnessed in case of myths to the extent that their interpretation & inference may change over a period cultural context and scenario.
The holy Bible
USING DIFFERENT MYTHOLOGICAL REFERENCES
The Forbidden Fruit
Peaches of Immortality
(hindu; samudra manthan)
And then they lived forever.
Essentially, the purpose of a myth is to a convey a message.
That message remains the same throughout different cultures as the basic moral values remain constant throughout the world.
That's the beauty of cultural translation.
Well, Myths as we have discussed earlier, are different from the truth. We live our lives based on principles. They (Myths) contribute to that. The name, situation, cultural background of something doesn't matter. It never does.
