Reply To: Metamorphosis: Dreaming the New Songs,” with MythBlast author Kristina Dryža”


    Hello Kristina ,

    I enjoy the anthropomorphic personification of the seasons . It is a perennial theme of our species. The artistic play with these allusions are a hallmark of the seamless transitions in poetry. I think it is one of the first patterns life perceived as it evolved through the ebb and flow of its 3.5 billion year journey on Earth. We are a product of that journey. Our nervous system evolved to make coherent sense of the seasonal data. Language evolved to convey knowledge and wisdom gleaned over generational time. Myths are the personifications of these conversations of a higher order. Such poetry is awe inspiring, it moves the spirit of our species to flights of wonder on high.

    Thank you for your myth blast


    Mythic imagery abides ,  bodhisattva of the axis mundis … Arise …  from the waters of creation like Mu Pangaea , stepping stones of life , stepping stones of civilizations …

    liquid water Rock … are the constituent components of Life incarnate. Lots of fun to track its forms.

    “Our understanding of life on exoplanets and exomoons must be based on what we know about life on Earth. Liquid water is the common ecological requirement for Earth life. Temperature on an exoplanet is the first parameter to consider both because of its influence on liquid water and because it can be directly estimated from orbital and climate models of exoplanetary systems. Life needs some water, but deserts show that even a little can be enough. Only a small amount of light from the central star is required to provide for photosynthesis. Some nitrogen must be present for life and the presence of oxygen would be a good indicator of photosynthesis and possibly complex life.”

    At what point does mythic imagery become cliche ??? Does Jadedness pervade familiarity ?
