My friend John Lundwall has a couple of animated lectures posted on-line that deal with the astronomy and cosmology encoded in the mythology of oral societies. The lectures cover some of the same ground as John’s forthcoming book on the subject, which I am presently enjoying.
I shared one of these on Facebook the other day, but they’re both so good, I want to put them here.
Really, this should be interesting to anyone who rides through the cosmos on Spaceship Earth. Those of you who write science fiction and fantasy, game, or otherwise engage in detailed world-building… take special note.
