Talking U.S. Politics and Mythical Beasts: The Canada Letter - The New York Times - per Nytimes

Another takeaway is that real cultural clashes are happening. The game of politics is no longer existing outside of things like culture or outside of the questions of who we are as Americans. Now it’s really baked in there. You have a president who just likes talking about domestic policy and also weighs in on the cultural event of the day. Whether it is what N.F.L. players are doing on the field or whether it is what the latest celebrity said at the Oscars.

Dragons: Exploring the Ancient Origins of the Mythical Beasts - Ancient Origins - per Ancient-origins

In ancient Egypt, there was a deity known as Apep, the Serpent of the Nile. This giant snake was the Lord of Chaos and persistent opponent of light and truth. He was believed to lie just below the horizon, forever waiting for his chance to swallow the sun. At other times, he was believed to descend into the underworld to eat the souls of the dead. Apep is a far cry from the Druks and wyverns that populate much of Eastern and Western folklore, respectively. However, it does point to a perennial fear held by humans throughout history. In an interesting theory put forward by anthologist David E. Jones in his book An Instinct for Dragons , the author argues that like monkeys and dogs, humanoids are instinctively afraid of snakes, as well as other large predators. James posits that the collective human consciousness invented the dragon over centuries as a result of that embedded fear. This could explain how dragon myths have independently arisen in disparate corners of the globe.
