Reply To: The “Mythology” of Science

Hello,

Many old myths served as narratives that contained mnemonic devices. They had poetic entendre on multiple levels in their native language. I think the literal way we recite them would be foreign to their authors. The constellations were used for navigation and seasonal recognition. The narratives kept them in our ancestors mind. Navigation and the reckoning of time is still a viable essential science.
