The Decline of World Mythology
 –
by Aaron Steiner
In today’s Western culture the word “
Myth
” has lost its true meaning a
nd sub-sequentially, its truepower to give people what it was originally designed to provide . . . answers to who we are as a species,and the particular events that strongly influenced us in our early development.
The word “
Myth
” has become synonymous with the word “
misconception
”. The travesty surrounding
this word has evolved to this simply because of the misconception surrounding the mythology of ourorigins and early history. It is factors such as these that has allowed our true history to become muddledand distorted, not only in our Western culture, but in many others as well.Myths are not to be confused with other similar types of stories, such as legends, sagas, and folktales.
The book “
Mythology For Dummies
” defines the word “Myth” as –
 
“Myths are stories about gods andgoddesses and supernatural entities and human relationships with them.”
Such authors as
Joseph Campbell
point out how empowering the wealth of symbolism presentedwithin the various world mythologies can be for people, according to their own personal interpretationof them. At times these Myths can often provide a sense of fulfillment and sometimes even a spiritual
awakening within one’s mind.
The problem
that arises in any symbolic account is that actual history becomes negated by ones
“feeling” of enlightenment in the present moment. Any historical account becomes lost or muddled, anda true understanding of who we are as physical being’s, how we came to be and what may have
happened to us in our early development . . . becomes rather displaced in the process.A
true myth
would be devoid of symbolism, and present a straight forward account of theserelationships that the early humans had with the gods. It would also have to clearly define who thesegods were. Without this understanding, any symbolic account would be subject to a vast multitude of diverse interpretation. It is this
diversity
in itself that causes the many barriers between our worldcultures and various religions . . . and one of the main causes of current global decimation and a historyof warfare.A true myth would provide a common account of our human origins and eliminate barriers caused byany perceived diversity. In my new book
MYTH: The Origin of Man
I try to provide a clear and unbiasedaccount of our human origins. It is in this approach, that I was ultimately able to decipher a clear andcomprehensive story line of our relationships with whom our oldest history say were our creators

Painting With Words
 –
by Aaron Steiner
Back in 04’ I decided to go finally to college after a 20 year summer vacation from when I had
graduated high school, and I signed up for a 2.5 year degree in Fine Arts at Spokane Falls CommunityCollege. I had been working as a silversmith and wanted to refine my skills.The obtainment of a Fine Arts Degree is an unusual and eclectic journey into working with a widevariety of mediums . . . such as paint, charcoal, ceramics, found objects, bronze and silver, steel, wax,tape, wood, and the list goes on. There were a couple of required classes that involved a bit of writing,but not very many.In the end some of my most striking work was a series of life size mannequins I had constructed frompacking tape molds I had made off my various friends. They were so aesthetically correct that they wereand still are constantly fooling people into thinking they are real people. It is a wonderful feeling as anartist.Regardless of the success of my mannequins, my focus seemed to lean more toward an idea I hadbeen playing with during much of my time spent at college. An underlying theme seemed to be
emerging in my work that began while I was taking a class called “No
n-
Western Art”. In this class we
studied world art and mythologies, and it was here that I had come to the realization that our Westernculture was devoid of many of the mythologies present in the rest of the world.After some thought, it dawned on me that as a non-superstitious culture we would need a very literalmythology concerning our past. It was then that I decided to pursue this monumental endeavor andproceeded to make artwork that reflected the storyline of who we are, and where we came from. Someof my professors did not understand my obsession, but I did not let it detour me.After I graduated, instead of creating physical artwork, I started to solidify my storyline and beganwriting MYTH as a screenplay. As my work evolved, I realized that I had created an entire universe out of letters that I simply put on a page. My words became the paint as the page became my canvass. Havingtaken no in-depth writing classes in my past, I had no idea how magnificent painting with words couldtruly be. It was if I had been transported to another world, and my words were the perfect devise torecord the events I had witnessed there. They became a rich and colorful tapestry.
As I write my second installment of MYTH, I can’t fully express the joy an
d exhilaration I feel beingable to spend more time with characters that I have come to know and love, as I watch its tapestryunfold. I get to travel to the past and hang out with Anunaki Royalty!
