And we've also heard possible valid accounts of individuals holding as such through several lifetimes.... what's up w/that?
kay... eventually we'll need a remedial course in 'Male feathered dragons' (Koo-Koo for Cocoa Puffs Khan, or Quetza-cuddles, or "He Who REALLY Shan't Be Named, Seen or Discussed even in veiled terms while he curls around She and makes everything") because I'm just plain ignorant in the finer folkloric/mythological/physics shades of His scaly meanings... or it's been awhile and BD's mind has seen many years and strange chems since his Anthro 330 days.

I wonder sometimes whether that's evidence of reincarnation, or evidence of a natural connection with something like a group-consciousness/soul. Information might flow between individual minds in such a group, regardless of whether they're incarnated here or not. I think both ideas may be valid, but I suppose there's no way to know.

Pigs in space was great fun, and you shall forever be my Twrch Trwyth muse.
Yes sleep, dream on it, integrate it - who knows where it's going to take you? An archaeologist of forgotten dreams is not something you become every day.
Smyth wrote in his Speculum Hartwelliauum: "King Arthur, the renowned hero of the Mabinogion, typified the Great Bear; as his name, — Arth, bear, and Uthyr, wonderful, — implies in the Welsh language; and the constellation, visibly describing a circle in the North Polar regions of the sky, may possibly have been the true origin of the Son of Pendragon's famous Round Table, the earliest institution of a military order of knighthood."
[Page 426] Whatever may be the fact in this speculation, we know that the early English placed King Arthur's home here, and that the people of Great Britain long called it Arthur's Chariot or Wain, which appears in the Lay of the Last Minstrel: Arthur's slow wain his course doth roll, In utter darkness, round the pole.
'Twas noon of night, when round the pole
The sullen Bear is seen to roll. — Thomas Moore's translation of the Odes of Anacreon.

As far as I know "oral history" contained the best stuff in various cultures, and quite logically wasn't...
Wait for it....
