Soul Stories - Some Fairy tales may be 6000 years old

Interesting research! Funny enough we were just talking about this in a class the other day. There is a lot more to these folk tales and myths than most people realise. They speak the soul's language. I don't think it's a coincidence that the books and films that draw most heavily from mythology such as Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and Star Wars, are the most successful.

"Jack and the Beanstalk, Beauty & the Beast, and Hansel and Gretel – all of these stories, and hundreds more, have been handed down in some form or another, for thousands of years. The new study, which employed statistical methods similar to those employed by evolutionary biologists, traced fables such as the Smith and the Devil, back to the Neolithic period. It's truly astounding that humanity has learned so much about language, history, and culture just in order to know this fact. Our fables are our history and through them, we're able to establish a connection with our forebears and celebrate the common humanity of all people."
