Myth is Theory‘s sister. She is a little more reliable than her metaphysical sibling, but often the truths of Myth are buried in obscure stories that have to be unraveled before they can provide tangible knowledge. Because of this, she is a great storyteller and my only word of caution in regards to this beast is that you don’t let her wrap you up in a tale so grand and compelling that you forget time. Some travelers have encountered her, only to reappear centuries later, lost in the denouement of a fantastic story woven for them by Myth.
