    A favorite Joseph Campbell quote:

    ‘Whence do all these so widely shared themes and motifs derive?’ we might ask. ‘Where do dragons come from? Where, for example, on the map, might I draw a circle to mark the homeland of the species dragon? Or is that place not to be found, perhaps, in any part of the map at all?’

    If questions of this kind occur to us and we take them seriously enough to begin to look for answers, the quest may take us not only into every part of the world and century of the past, into oriental temples, painted paleolithic caves, and the deepest jungle sanctuaries, but also, in some way or other, inward, upward, and downward, following shamans on their visionary journeys and witches to their sabbaths.

    Joseph Campbell, “Myths East to West,” Myths, by Alexander Eliot (Copyright © 1976), p. 32

    Such is the magic of myth …


      Dragon is a conjunction of the never ending narratives and myths that just continues to Drag on and on and on and on !!!


        Where do dragons come from ?

        They come from the lair behind our eyes and between our years . We are their flesh their scales their belly their teeth . They are the great fish the sea serpent. They are our body our family our church our state our institution . They feed on and consume us as we transubstantiate consubstanciate  within them .

        The Dragons are us …

        And where we had thought to find a Dragon, we shall find a god; where we had thought to slay a Dragon, we shall slay ourselves; where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence; and where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the Dragons.

        Temporality with all its manifestation of matter flesh psychoid phenomena is the Dragon !!!


        “Drag on and drag on and drag on” – this seriously tickles the mythic punster in me …


          On is the binary equivalent of yes . The circuit is in movement and flow … may it be every so without end !!! On and on and on …

          till the trailing tale of on is byt OFF within the mouth of the Ouroboros … Or simply let your yes be yes and your no be no …


            First Law of Reister:

            I Dragon


              Second Law of Reister:

              I Dragon Slayer

              A Dragon must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.


                Orally transmitted subroutine to First Law of Reister:

                I am Human Being


                This is acknowledgments of reciprocation



                  Stephen glad you like the pun 😀

                  the on and on and on and on and on was meant to represent the tail/tale through time history mystery mythstery 🤫💀
