According to Sophie Strand, a modern writer deeply enmeshed in the exploration of narrative and ecology, a 'myth' is an intricate weave of stories that transcend time and space, holding the power to shape collective human experience. She considers myths not merely as ancient fables or entertaining tales, but as living ecosystems of meaning, deeply intertwined with the natural world and human psyche. For Strand, myths serve as cultural arteries, channeling essential truths, ancestral wisdom, and existential questions that continue to animate and guide societies. They are dynamic, ever-evolving tapestries that frame our understanding of existence, constantly inviting reinterpretation and deeper engagement. In her view, myths are fertile ground where imagination, history, and nature coalesce, offering both solace and challenge to the human spirit.
