... done) or if these gods are merely plagiarised to pronounce and restrain a reality to such ends. In some sense, I'm asking if there is an "outside" to mythology now(!) which we can discover/find/create (as perhaps Blake did), or if we are constrained to mythology in imagination. Any thoughts? Clark ... can relate in this specific historical juncture (thus pronouncing their universality --Platonic form) The same could be said of most myths since the Greeks (though I realize that to limit mythological history to the Greeks is a fascist step, which is another topic altogether). For instance, the Oedipus myth came straight out of a passage in Homer, later picked ...

... object through Customs.

... to see whether this chain is not justified by some line of stars between the chief stars in Draco and those in the Great Bear. Let us now turn to the associated mythology. We see that the astronomical ideas have a most definite character; we learn also from the inscriptions dating from the Eighteenth Dynasty, that the Egyptians at that time recognised three ... one of the poles of the existence of every nation; hence it will be well not to neglect the opportunity thus afforded of studying the astronomical basis of one of the best-known myths.
