About myths and artificial creatures
From its beginnings, myth was used to tell something urgent and vital. In Greek mythology myths were used to explain natural phenomena, the origin of the world, cultural differences, feuds, in which mythical creatures took the form of animals, or monstrous deviations from creation. Alessandro Baricco states that, for some time now, humans have become more refined. They have realized that they were creating myths that, by piecing together fragments of events, form artificial, often abstract figures.
Only civilizations capable of recognizing the production of myths can correctly read their destiny. Where there is no creation of myths, humans will remain immobile, as if paralyzed by a spell.
