The Prometheus Syndrome" Bettina L. Knapp. Myth is to be understood as the narration of a primordial experience, not necessarily personal but rather, transcendental; not something invented for the sake of entertainment, though it may be also that, but rather, a living and burning reality that exists in the psyche and culture of a people. It flows in a cyclical, sacred, or eternal dimension. Myth-time is reversible. The events narrated in the Prometheus myth are perpetual; they were understood by the ancient Greeks according to their cultural canon, by men of the Middle Ages in terms of their concepts, and so on.
