Question and answer
why do myths from different culture around the world address such similar or universal themes?
It just goes to show the similarity of the human mind and spirit. [ Whether strictly science or religiously based, research and studies have shown that an individual, regardless of his or her gender, orientation, skin colour, or national background will have the same mindsets given the same experiences and surroundings. Many cultures have stories about divine figures whose death creates an essential part of reality.[15][16] These myths seem especially common among cultures that grow crops, particularly tubers.[17] One such myth from New Guinea tells of a miraculously-conceived girl named
Hainuwele, whose murdered corpse sprouts into the people's staple food crops.[18] The Chinese myth of Pangu,[19] the Vedic myth of Purusha,[20] and the Norse myth of Ymir all tell of a cosmic giant who is killed to create the world.[15] Similar is the Christian myth of Christ, whose death refashions the world. ]
