I Love Mythology

From Tragic Lovers to Heroic Quests... 2,842 People

    One of my favorite myths comes from Plato's

    "Symposium" in which Aristophanes explains the origin of soul mates. It describes humans as originally having been dual-faced, four-armed, four-legged creatures that were split in half by Zeus, who feared their strength. The resulting halves would ache and long for their other...

    Mythology is just fantastic

    and it plays a vital role in shaping my imagination. I've read Greek mythology when I was a kid and instantly became hooked! As a kid, hearing stories from other places and cultures is like being given a special treasure or toy. It keeps my imagination healthy without me, ever...

    I truly love that. Specially the greek myths.

    I could immerse myself in a book about that for hours, days if I'm not doing anything. My books looks so old and wrinkled and dog-eared after only a few days of purchasing them because I keep reading them over and over again haha

    It's called mythology

    because of the Christians, but in truth it is folklore. I'm Norse, so my attention is drawn to Asgard, Vanaheim, Valhalla and the Ragnarok, all the truth about Yggdrasil. I'm not interested in some obscure Jewish man who is said to have made promises to his followers at his...
