An incredibly compelling article in The New Yorker on the hunt for a mythological creature inside the computer game of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. It seems that over the years, fans have started brewing up their own mythology around random sightings from the corner of their eye seen on insomniac nights playing the game. It’s a really interesting look into the beginnings of mythology. This is the original folk beliefs, generated from hyperactive brains that saw something unexplained once and desire to create significance around it. It’s very much in line with how philosopher Daniel Dennett argues about the roots of religion in his book Breaking the Spell: Religion as a Natural Phenomenon, which is well worth reading.
