Oyster Theory

The world is your oyster.

There is a great theory about how myths are made called the oyster theory. The theory is that when an irritating grain of sand/truth enters the shell of a writer/storyteller, the grain of truth becomes an irritant, and eventually it morphs into a pearl of a story. Or, you could, say, it becomes a pearl of wisdom. The pearl is a shiny version of the world with a gritty grain of truth at its center.

And more food for thought: "Myth uses things that cannot be proven in order to prove the things that really exist." -Michael Meade
