Introductions

Hello fellow traveler!

If you are reading this, you have stumbled upon what I would refer to as an ark, an archive for collected and often obscured information, regarding the beliefs and legends surrounding mankind, its history and prehistory. It is my purpose in writing this blog to research and analyze topics that surround folklore, legend, tradition and spirituality across many cultures in an effort to better understand the foundations of belief which underpin our shared history as humans. This is not so much a conspiracy site as it is an anthropological one. I wish to document and analyze these various stories and then make that research available to other seekers, to aid in both their understanding and my own. We are, to put it in context, a product of the stories that we tell ourselves and those stories have significance, even if they originate in other cultures or within the beliefs of other peoples. The value of understanding these stories and beliefs is in allowing us to re-evaluate the trajectory of our future, based on the knowledge we can gain from our past. I leave you with these two quotes to better drive this point home.

“Who are we but the stories we tell ourselves, about ourselves, and believe?”

― Scott Turow, Ordinary Heroes

“It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you don’t know where you are, and if you don’t know where you are, you don’t know where you’re going. And if you don’t know where you’re going, you’re probably going wrong.”

― Terry Pratchett, I Shall Wear Midnight
