Topic: Need Ancient illusions myths legends and History
Message: Posted by: Eros (Sep 1, 2005 09:29PM)
Hey

I desperately need some guidance here everybody. I need Old illusions that may be unexplained that date way back in history. They need not be explainable at all. In fact I am looking to just get great storys that mystified people in history.

For example the Egyptian priest who carved an alligator out of wax and then brought it to life. Then the alligator chased down his cheating wife and killed her.

Or the magician who used the disappearing box to escape the a king who would not let him leave the country and had to spend days in a confined space until he was shipped out of the country.

If you know of these legends or if you know there is an actual contactable person, I would greatly indebted to you.

Thank you

Dave

Have you checked out Joeseph Campbell's "The Power Of Myth" DVD? That's the history of most cultures myths right there. I don't know if that helps. There will be stories like the story of Osiris, etc.

How could you make duplicate post with 5 minutes interval?

Thanks to my ancient computer, anything is possible! I had it do this 15 minutes apart before?! I don't know what's going on, but I apologize.

Eros: you may want to be more specific about your scope of inquiry. As currently stated, if you mean the question so broadly, you should look into the Bible and all other world religions for starters. Clay
