Modernity eating away at a human experience
One persons fantasy is another persons reality, the question is where do we draw the line, and who draws it?
Humans have consistently throughout time created alternate “beings” and worlds within their society. Often times these “beings” would play a major role within society. Societies would make and create these alternate beings within alternate worlds, and it would take a major role in their society. Take for example the Great Sphinx at Giza in Egypt, this is a statue that has half human half animal characteristics. Large structures such as the Sphinx implies a great understanding of the human and animal connection. Another example is from Greek mythology, the Centaur, a part human part horse creature. These can both be translated into different manners by the people translating them but we should all understand that what some cultures consider “myth” another culture may consider it to be more than a myth.
So what does this mean? This means that even though there is a great part of society within our modern culture that is trending towards a reality that they think deems them “more worthy” by not believing anything of “myth” it does not discount the existence of the modern werewolf, a part human part wolf creture. The more modern humans in society become the less likely they will believe in the supposed “unbelievable,” they stand on a linear line of the world and believe in only what they are told to believe in. Modernity is eating away at the essence of the human and our ability to explore the “other worlds” (that do not exist on that linear path), different states of mind, and of course unexplainable creatures.
As more and more of our society steers themselves in that linear line following one another into the future it leaves a handful of humans who can and do return to one of the essentials of the human experience, a world where the we explore the alternate paths of the human experience.
