Myth Number 1, Section 4a

There are two things in life: Myth and Pedestal. Once you know that, it’s just a series of formula equations of configurations of myth to pedestal ratios.

The beginner’s module goes like this, with general rules and basic equations:

1. The value of a Myth (M) is 0 until added to a Pedestal (P).
2. 1 myth and 1 pedestal = 1.
3. There can only be 1 pedestal to every 8 myths before another pedestal can be added. Extra pedestals added to < 8 myths and 1 pedestal cancel to 0.
4. 1 myth = 1 head. 1 pedestal = 1 body. Worship applies to both to infinity.

Example equations:

2 P = 1 M + 1 P

1 M + 1 P = 1

2 M = 0

1 P + 8 M + 1 P = 10

M
= 1 = Head = 1

P Body
