The purpose of the Mythology Section is:
1) to clarify as quickly as possible the reconstruction offered by the "Saturn Hypothesis";
2) to explore the dominant archetypes of world mythology--the only field of evidence permitted under our comparative approach; and
3) to determine if the reconstruction does indeed account for these archetypes in the concrete terms we have claimed (i.e., with a predictive power no prior theory of myth has achieved.)
Additionally, as visitors familiarize themselves with the hypothesis, we want to allow them to challenge either the hypothesis or the methodology. Succinct, specific challenges will be allowed. What will not be allowed is extensive and random posting of assorted ideas about one mythical theme or another, without meaningful reference to the hypothesis being evaluated here. With this latter constraint in mind, we've deleted a couple of threads, with no desire to offend.
Example: the dragon is a fascinating motif, but one could find a thousand Internet discourses on the dragon, none of which would advance our purpose--to account for all of the core dragon themes in a systematic way. Is this possible? Any focused discussion bearing directly on that question will be allowed.
