The study of religious or heroic legends and tales. One constant rule of mythology is that whatever happens amongst the gods or other mythical beings was in one sense or another a reflection of events on earth.

"Groupthink is the intellectual manifestation of mob mentality. Few of today's under-30's would dare to express an opinion without checking what their friends thought first. In fact, daring wouldn't even apply, because it would never occur to them to do it any other way." -- George Dibos
