A Word –


“myth”
—–

To be “modern-world-liberatedly”
officially calling untruths “myths”

is a deliberate “shooting in the foot”
by “a leading handful of authorities”
of us loyally-trusting billions of subjects..

Under our “Self&-Civilisation Sustain-worthy-ing Movement” basics and guidances
we already saw our need to be “cleaning up language”.

Taking njow this “myths” deception and twisted hi-jacking –
some of our sources already established ‘help’ for us
(1)   In The Greek Myths vol 1 by Robert Graves page 12,
a list of non-myths that are mistaken for true-myths is given:
“True myth must be distinguished from:
(1)   Philosophical allegory (as in Hesiod’s cosmogony);
(2)   ‘Aetiological’ explanation of myths no longer understood (as in Admetus’s yoking of a lion and a boar to his chariot) ;
(3)  Satire or parody (as in Silesus’s account of Atlantis) ;
(4)   Sentimental fable (as in the story of Narcissus and Echo) ;

(1635)
(5)  Embroidered history (as in Arion’s adventure with the dolphin) ;
(6)   Minstrel romance  (as in the story of Cephalus and Procris) ;
(7)   Political propaganda (as in Thseus’s Federalisation of Attica) ;
(8)   Moral legend (as in the story of Eriphyle’s necklace) ;
(9)   Humourous anecdote (as in the bedroom farce of Heracles, Omphale, and Pan) ;
(1644) – you see, our loyalties are being turned into “gullibilities” by ‘modern leadership’-
(10)   Theatrical melodrama ( as in the story of Thestor andhis daughters) ;
(11)   Heroic saga (as in the main argument of The Iliad) ;  (12)   Realistic fiction (as in Odysseus’s visit to the Phaeacians) .

Graves also showed
“Yet genuine mythic elements may be found embedded in the least romising stories,
and the fullest or most illuminating version of a given myth is seldom supplied by any one author;
nor, when searching for its original form, should one assume
that the more ancient the written source, the more authoritatgive it must be./…”

(1655)

and we need to seek out other guidances to clarifying our language
and thereby deconflating and deconfusing our minds
and therefrom “choosing the right thing to do and for the right reason”
in our actions;
don’t you think ?
