The fitting if not by coincidence by those two points: the past and the present, and the myth and reality usually having a common relative, gives a new dimension or a more reasonable state of research. As the radical discover by this new homo specie so well fitting the legend and the tale, the question of fundamentalization either skepticism either dogma raises a new kind of approach for a bridge between myth and science. Could this indicate myths should be vi...
