Now that we are living in the Information Age, we are learning at exponential rates. Our knowledge of what lies beyond our planet has grown rapidly. Just last week, NASA announced the discovery of hundreds of planets, something that even 10 years ago was solely theory. As we look beyond our own boundaries to learn more about our potential future, we are also looking inward to learn more about our past. Myths and legends, long part of our oral history, have been given historical context, sometimes exposing the truth behind some, and leaving others as a greater mystery. While some legends of the past seem too fantastical to be true, we are learning more every day and have to ask – what if they are indeed true?
This week on One Cell, One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy welcomes returning guest, the delightful Rene Compton – creator of the children’s tutorials, “Computer Puppets” and the majical Gophette — presents her charming reading of ‘THE JEWELED DRAGONFLY’ – a mythical – fascinating tale — and returning guest, Film Producer Veronica Hendricks, for a discussion on the reality of our most fascinating myths and legends.
The Jeweled Dragonfly – Audio and Story by Rene Compton:
Some of the most pervasive myths are centered around cryptozoology, the study of creatures whose existence is still under debate due to lack of evidence. This includes living examples of creatures that are otherwise considered extinct, such as non-avian dinosaurs and animals whose existence lacks physical evidence but which appear in folklore, such as Bigfoot and chupacabras. Among these creatures are unicorns and dragons, both of which hold enormous significance in fiction, but have yet to authenticated as having existed on our planet.
However, recently dated a fossil of Elasmotherium sibiricum found in Kazakhstan has recently proven a “unicorn” was still alive 29,000 years ago. Thought to have been extinct for more than 350,000 years, this creature looked more like a rhinoceros than a horse, weighing about 9,000 pounds. It’s easy to see how through oral history, the legend of this quadroped could have changed from a large, rhinoceros-like creature, to that of the horse-with-a-horn that we are more familiar with now.
Join Dr. Hildy and her guests this week as they discuss the veracity of this and other ancient legends on One Cell One Light Radio!
What If Legends are True?
May 18, 2016, OCOLR – Dr. Hildy
What is a legend? A legend is defined as a traditional story sometimes popularly regarded as historical but unauthenticated by Webster’s Dictionary. Currently, we are living in a time when science is proving the historical findings of anthropologist to be true. It is a time when myth, legend and the scientific validation of natural history is being proven to be TRUE.
Years ago there was a wonderful book by Paul and Karin Johnsgard entitled, “A Natural History Dragons and Unicorns, which was a beautiful story based on the procedure of a scientific investigation to validate that dragons and unicorns existed in our world. They stated that because most people are woefully ignorant of the importance of both dragons and unicorns in maintaining stable worldwide ecosystems, that the values inherent in protecting the faunal diversity represented by dragons and unicorns they offered a summary of the natural histories of the beasts.
And in the last few months of 2016 a press release was made by China that they have found the fossilized remains of a UNICORN. This beast bones were of a horse with a rhinoceros’s horn. So right now, science is proving that the bones of the Chinese Unicorn is really the fossilized bones of a pre-historic unicorn that legends have been told about, since King Arthur and the Round Table.
On today’s show we will discuss how the legends we grew up with are now becoming true even down to the test tube creation of ancient beasts. This is when Jurassic Park becomes true and on the horizon the Zoo of China a reality. And the amazing thing is that we are all experiencing the reality of the truth right now in each and every home.
