Creating Myths in Daily Lives
A myth is an image in terms of which we try to make sense of the world.
Myths can be defined as vibrant tales and sagas regarding the inception of humans, the universe, and the heavens. Although myths are an integral part of almost every culture and region, yet people carry diverse demeanours and behaviours toward perceived myths. In this context, the segregated factions believe myths to be a device of spiritual sustainability meanwhile, others deem it as a fabricated medium to relay self-created stories. Some people delineate mythology as a portal to explore universal patterns (Pierotti, 2016). In this context, some people consider myths as something contemporary and dynamic on the other hand, the remaining take it as an ancient and deceased discipline (Magoulick, 2015). Furthermore, the roots of the creation of mythology are explicitly or implicitly connected with cultural and societal perspectives and therefore have an evident tinge in everyday lives and playing an integral role in explicating the cultures and its intricacies.
As a common phenomenon in daily life, people fail to comprehend the rationale and reason for an inevitable occurrence, in turn they create a myth to illustrate the enigmas of regular lives. In this regard, the legends are considered as authorless stories that are created with an intention to relay a universal lesson, clarifying a mystery or incident of nature, describing the institutions, rituals and customary obligations and facades of different people. Take the instance of ancient times when people were deprived of meteorological facilities and therefore were unable to decipher the underlying reasons for natural disasters such as earthquake, thundering, and sea storm, and avalanches etcetera. In such cases, they used to disseminate the beliefs regarding the wrath of gods and deities who become furious if their people forget to sacrifice material things for them (Miller, 2018). At that epoch, primitive men thought that a sunken ship is the consequence of disobedience and avoiding Poseidon, and they used to sacrifice food, gold, and animals as an apology and assurance of thriving in future.
The creation of myth is ultimately significant in daily life and numerous other mtier take the instance of historiography that commenced with the stories of bards. Back in time, bards told sagas and epic tales of gods and heroes and their miseries and victories to elevate peoples morale and establishing the notion of heroism and difference between good and evil. Moreover, in previous times, people allocated a god or deity or their offspring as the guardian of some particular filed of life. For example, Circe was famous for her herbal remedies, Athena was the deity of war and wisdom, Artemis was the goddess of hunting and Aphrodite was the deity of love and beauty, and the list goes on and on. All these distinct gods and goddesses were praised for availing their distinct blessings and any ominous occurrence in any of their spheres considered as a punishment.
Regardless of all counter-arguments, no one can deny that myths are still vivid even in the ultimately technological age. Such myths are incorporated in different aspects of ordinary life and proffering answers of proposed inquests. In older times, people used to seek elucidation regarding natural happening, while people nowadays are searching for the explanation regarding the efficacy of their strategies and devices. Moreover, in ancient epoch, gods and mighty individuals such as Hercules and Achilles were significant disposition. Meanwhile, in the contemporary world, Captain America, Iron Man, and Harry Potter are mythical heroes who are defining the eternal concepts of yin and yang. Furthermore, in a modern perspective, myths are also practiced to permeate metaphors to humans miseries and subsequent raise such as mythological bird Phoenix who rises from ashes, after its every demise.
