Behind every myth, fairy tale, and legend--hidden within the art, song, and structures of ancient times--is an encoded layer of wisdom, science, and truth passed down throughout history. This book will examine how information went "viral" long before the Internet, and served as the foundation for mythology, sacred architecture, and symbolic imagery throughout the ancient world.
Viral Mythology reveals:
From the great myths of the Greek, Roman, and Norse to the texts of the world's major religions, from folklore and fairy tales of old to sacred edifices and monuments, from cave paintings to the mysterious symbology of the Tarot, Viral Mythology uncovers the information highway of the past, and explores how it affects the more modern methods of communication today.
It all began once upon a time....

Marie Jones and Larry Flaxman will make you think, yet again. From ancient pyramids and the Baghdad Battery to "Sharknado" and social networking, they dive into how information is and is not passed onand how that affects society at the time and for the future. "Everything we engage in as a society, as human beings, locally or globally, gets embeded and encoded as pieces of historical puzzle for someoe to put together one day." So true! They make you contemplate that next status you put up on facebook, photo you put on instagram or just how the pyramids were built. A great book for those interested in history, alternative history, sociology or just those who are curious.
