Taum Santoski VI

'Aphorisms Towards a Poetics of Fantasy'

6. If myth and history can be broken down into two categories, then their definitions must be different processes. Myth is the perception of events, the feeling of the observer imposed upon the event so far that any "impartiality" is removed. History is then the observation of events, the removal of response to an event so that any opinion of the event cannot be derived.

--Taum Santoski, circa 1984
