The short stories
We are often asked why the Enchanted wood deals with fairy tales, mythology and magic of the people who have gone before and the answer is this: just because we can not afford to lose a wonderful opportunity to open a window on the innermost thoughts of 'humanity. Myths, legends and magic are indeed a universal human creation; They were born in different times and places, as an explanation of the problems with which man is measured and that transcend our ability to understand: the end of life, misfortune, success, cruelty, love that sometimes goes beyond life and hope in a better world.
With the birth of philosophy and, more recently, the scientific thought, the mythological approach the reality has lost value.
The mythological richness suggests that its human source resides in the human psyche; unique claims there are none. In every man they coexist a personal unconscious and collective unconscious; the first consists of the knowledge of the experience of each of us, while the second is the depositary of the heritage of all humanity.
Therefore, if the basic needs are the same, sometimes myths, legends and fairy tales are often very similar, because they have to answer to a single question: the complexity of life.
