Today, I did the first adult thing I’ve done in a while. I signed my lease for my first house since college. Unlike my peers in undergrad, I lived on campus all four years. Free room and board are one of the financial incentives for working as a community advisor. When I graduated college, I moved back home with my parents. I needed to figure out where I was headed next and had no money to do this with. I returned to my nest and settled in with my already developed wings.
Understanding myth means exploring those individuals who first used them. These would be classic, in the ancient sense, such as Plato, Socrates, and so on. The ancient Greek for myth is muthos which translates to “true story.” This is somewhat different from the modern context of myths as things needing debunking. Now, myths seem to indicate a level of falsehood.
