Mytho-historical thinking and the Legendarium

Post by Meneldur Olvarion »

A paper I wrote and subsequent video we did for T-e on the subject of mytho-historical thinking as a way of understanding the Legendarium, using a critique of Amazon's Abomination™ as a starting point for related concepts.



PDF mentioned in the video:

I've just downloaded this pdf, Dave, I will definitely give this a good read!

Mytho-historical cognition is the 'key' to understanding my point of view on the Legendarium, and how I interact with it. For whatever that's worth.

As I remember it, I went into considerable detail in the linked video.

Hi Dave, I cannot play this video inside the post because it’s set to “not display on other website” (or “do not allow embedding”). Can you please fix that?

It should work if you click the "play on YouTube" link in the box. It works here, anyway.

I don't have control of the video - Lisa does, as she has the whole Patreon thing for T-e in which I guess she doesn't want them posted on Facebook or the like, but (as I understand it) it isn't very granular. I'll see if I can post a tinyurl link to it below:

The tinyurl got the job done! Clicking on the Youtube link brought me nowhere 😊

Cool, that's good to know.

In the future, I'll post a note with the tinyurl link to the video - something to the effect of "Forum and social media viewing restricted; please follow this link to YouTube to view the video: [link]".

You can of course, but it would be much easier to just ask Lisa to check this box in the video settings in Youtube. I'm sure she just wasn't aware of this option.
