... to a discussion of Indra's mythus- far from it; only that one must beware of revisionist tendencies in these later texts. Puhvel's commentary on this state of affairs is most relevant: Late Vedic and post-Vedic tradition, where Indra's godhead progressively declines with the onset and elaboration of Brahmanism, is still replete with increasingly submythological, epic, and folkloric Indra lore, some of it direct succession and elaboration of the Vedas, other parts purveying potentially important ancient para-Vedic tradition, still others probably reflecting the fictional impulses of a later age. (7 ) If the vast majority of Indra's deeds can be found in the Veda, it is not always a simple matter to interpret their original ...

... ) The Tewa of New Mexico remember the young lover of the maiden Willow Flower. When she died, the Old Medicine Man launched him into the sky upon an arrow, and there both he and his lover were translated into stars.(28) The immediate question is whether such tales as this, appearing with amazing frequency in popular folklore, have evolved from the random play of fancy, or point to a common experience? Does the arrow on which the Tewa hero ascended to the sky belong to the same collective memory as the spear on which the Australian hero Waijungari climbed to heaven? Greek poets and historians recalled that in order to establish his rule, Heracles, ...

... existed before. I was unaware, until prompted by Peter, that a similar thing occurred shortly after the Roman period, in the 6th century AD. This information comes from Nigel Pennick's Lost Lands and Sunken Cities (Fortean Times, 1987 (1 Shoebury Road, East Ham, London E6 2AQ)). Nigel is a specialist in folklore and noted as a meticulous researcher. He claims that all around the coasts are the remains of lands which have been destroyed by the sea - by erosion, by the subsidence of cliffs, or by abrupt and sudden inundation. These include the Lost Lowland Hundred of west Wales, the Goodwin Sands (once an island where animals were ...

... a study in chimerical events. It is one thing to observe and research such events and then record them for others to study, but it is quite another to breathe life into them and give them physical substance. In this essay I have made the attempt. And yet, the images are still there, hidden in the mists of folklore and legend: A convoluting brightness had returned for one brief, shattering moment, mirroring the Sun on the silvered shield of Perseus, and then the world froze as if it had looked upon the face of Medusa.
