Home of Myths and Legends

The exploration of myths and legends is the purpose of this site. Our society has led us to the point where we see myths and legends portrayed on television and in movies. Most people now see these myths and legends as not being real.

We place way too much reliance on ‘the ‘scientific truth’ which relies on the provision of factual, verifiable data before an opinion can be believed.

Sometimes the ‘truth’ is not based on fact, but on belief!

Modern Quantum Physics is based on belief and not on verifiable facts. So is science now starting its journey into myth and legend.

Dragons: universal myth and source of legend

Dragons exist in every culture and continent on this earth. For a creature that may, or may not have existed, the commonality of the mythical stories where these cultures did not have contact with each other is an incredible mystery.

So what more fitting a theme to have as our guide through this magical world of myth and legend.

Dragons are a powerful creature often portrayed as the source of a challenge to the hero of a legendary tale, or in more recent times as a co-hero with an integral part to play in the success of the hero.

In metaphysics, dragons are the guardians of treasures, magical secrets and pearls of wisdom, that they do easily reveal. They are sometimes seen as the fire-breathing beast within us that we need to co-operate with. A primal force that can put us in touch with our inner magician. When dragons are defeated or killed their treasure (wisdom) is lost.

So it is in our best interest to keep them alive so they can perform their magic.

They are also looked upon as the symbolic representation of the natural forces of the universe. They are the fire-breathing dragons that bring the hot winds or burn down houses and start bushfires. The frost dragon that brings the frost and the chilly weather. You can often see their breathe revealed on foggy, misty nights as they sleep nearby.

Science of Higher Sense Perception

“Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure Science.”
Edwin Powell Hubble

 The Science of Higher Sense Perception

We all know that we have 5 basic physical senses being; sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell. These senses can operate at a normal level or a person can develop those senses to a much higher degree, either through training or naturally. But we have other senses as well. These senses come from our mental and spiritual natures.

Using guidance from the study of metaphysics, I have identified these senses as a basis for exploration:

Mental Senses:

  • Rationality
  • Perception
  • Memory
  • Motivation
  • Responsibility
  • Imagination

Spiritual Senses:

  • Self
  • Connection
  • Serenity
  • Enjoyment
  • Control
  • Achievement
  • Morality

We often talk about our higher senses, but science pays them little or no attention other than through the treatment of ‘mental illness’ with the use of tranquilisers (anti-psychotics as they call them) and other pharmacology.

Our Mind recognises,  records and co-ordinates all of these senses as distinct from our brain that processes the physical interactions. The brain is like the ‘hard-drive’ and the mind is the ‘software’ that processes the ‘data’ stored in ‘memory’.

Within each of these grouping there are sub-sets of senses that feed and support, or detract from, the main sense group.

Each of these senses are crucial in the understanding of myths and legends if we are to understand their hidden messages and importance in achieving what Abraham Maslow called ‘Self-Actualisation’.

There are other mental and spiritual senses and the list may expand as my understanding grows.
