"HISTORY MUST BE CURVED, for there is a horizon in the affairs of mankind.
Beyond this horizon, events pass out of historical consciousness and into myth.
Accounts are shortened, complexities sloughed off, analogous figures fused,
traditions “abraded into anecdotes.” Real people become culture heroes:
archetypical beings performing iconic deeds. (Vansina 1985)"
On the curvature of history, where it recedes into legend... and a
recommendation for an SF series.
