Mythologie Mythologie (griech. μυθοι mythoi „Geschichten“, λέγειν legein „erzählen“, veraltet: Sagenwelt) bezeichnet die Gesamtheit der Mythen eines Kulturraumes oder eines Volkes, einer Region oder einer sozialen Gruppe sowie ihre systematische Darlegung in literarischer, wissenschaftlicher oder religiöser Form, mit kulturübergreifenden Unterteilungen in Astralmythologie, Zahlenmythologie, Eschatologie und andere. Das deutsche Wort „Mythologie“ erscheint erstmals 1712 in dem Buch Die teutsche Mythologie oder Beschreibung heidnischer Götter.[1] Beschreibung[Bearbeiten] Mythologie beschäftigt sich auch mit der Frage nach der Herkunft der Mythen und ihrem Verhältnis zu anderen Erzählformen wie Legende, Sage oder Epos. Soweit der Gegenstand der Mythen religiös gesehen wird, ist ihre Erforschung eng mit der Religionsgeschichte verbunden. Literatur[Bearbeiten] Gerhard Bellinger: Knaurs Lexikon der Mythologie.

5 Ancient Legends About the Secret of Immortality Chasing down the ancient world’s alchemical obsession with obtaining the Philospher’s Stone: the secret of immortality Mortality has tormented our consciousness since the first human witnessed death and realized his or her own eventual demise. The inevitability of death and speculation upon the nature of afterlife has always been an object of obsession for mystics and philosophers. In mythologies around the world, humans who achieve immortality are often regarded as gods, or as possessing god-like qualities. Lingzhi Mushroom (Via Wikimedia Commons) 1.

Together they symbolize life and death. Aztec mythology is the body or collection of myths of Aztec civilization of Central Mexico.[1] The Aztecs were Nahuatl speaking groups living in central Mexico and much of their mythology is similar to that of other Mesoamerican cultures. According to legend, the various groups who were to become the Aztecs arrived from the north into the Anahuac valley around Lake Texcoco. The Mexica/Aztec were said to be guided by their god Huitzilopochtli, meaning "Left-handed Hummingbird" or "Hummingbird from the South." Creation myth[edit] Huitzilopochtli is raising up the skies of the South, one of the four directions of the world, surrounded by their respective trees, temples, patterns and divination symbols.

Ancient Advanced Civilizations | Ancient Explorers EmailShare 2636EmailShare According to various esoteric sources, the first civilization arose 78,000 years ago on the giant continent known as Mu or Lemuria and lasted for an astonishing 52,000 years. It is sometimes said to have been destroyed in earthquakes generated by a pole shift which occurred some 26,000 years ago, or at approximately 24,000 B.C. While Mu did not reach as high a technology, supposedly, as other later civilizations, it is, nevertheless, said to have attained some advanced technology, particularly in the building of long-lasting megalithic buildings that were able to withstand earthquakes. Supposedly, there was one language and one government. It is said that when the continent of Mu sank, the oceans of the world lowered drastically as water rushed into the newly formed Pacific Basin. Atlantis is believed to have taken technology to very advanced stages, well beyond what exists on our planet today.
