History, Truth Or Fiction?

Depiction of King Arthur

Depiction of King Arthur

I was watching the History Channel about King Arthur, even though we know these stories as myths, was the attributes and certain events in his life based off of a real person?

We use descriptive writing to make elaborate stories that portray magic, super-human deeds, stunning love stories, and epic adventures, if we can do all of this who is to say that past generations didn’t do the same? What if Hercules was, in reality, a man who was really strong? People heard about this strong man, added to it, and created a man who was born from gods? According to the Smithsonian Channel, this is common in history, people took a great leader and over time, through embellishing stories, turned him into something divine.

If this is true, does it make you wonder how much of history was made up? What will future generations think about us when they examine our writings, our paintings, and our artifacts? Would they think we worship our animals because of how we treat them? Would they think we were a race of super-humans because of the stories we weave?

Nature holds no past and no future, it only lives now, it moves and flows, ever-changing in the present moment. It is not held back by the past, it does not blame and point the finger at those who have hurt it. Maybe we should learn from nature, yes, we can learn from the past, but what good does it do us to hold on to the past when there is the possibility that it could be wrong?


About Mimic Nature

Hello everyone! I’m so glad to see you! I’m Jana, I’m an eccentric wife and mother; I work 2 jobs and homeschool my kids. With all this going on in my life, I want to focus my attention on the things that make me happy, and the one thing that has made me happy ever since I was a little kid is nature. As my life progressed and changed through my teen years and my early married life, I lost my connection to it. Life took over and here I am living disconnected from nature because of work, bills, and every day events that keep me away. So the next chapter of my life will be dedicated, at least in some small part, to reconnecting to nature; I still have a mortgage, work, and a family to take care of, but now, I will be more aware of nature and my place within it. Each day, I will find some small way to not harm nature. Not long ago I was introduced to something called permaculture and I fell in love with it. Basically, it’s building a small ecosystem in your own backyard that is based off of what nature would do naturally. In turn your backyard helps you, and you help your backyard…with minimal work!! At first it may take more work, but over time, your backyard will become self-sustaining and you won’t have to work as hard…other than harvesting. I love the life lessons that I learn from nature, so what I promise to do is share a lesson that I’ve learned from nature each week, share what I’m learning about permaculture, and share my own personal progress in changing my homestead into a permaculture Garden of Eden. And since it’s hard to make any changes in life, I want to have some free giveaways once in awhile…all nature themed of course, to help all of us remember our ‘green’ family. Read a few articles, see if you like what is there, if you do, go ahead and subscribe. If you don’t like what you see, that’s ok, I’m honored that you took the time to get to know me a little and see my vision for my blog and my life.

  1. Amen, Jana.
    I believe the truth of mankind can be found more in his fairy tales then in his history.
