Lore is energetic form. Yet it's boundary is bottomless like the fractal. Unlike the temporal form of the body which passes in time, it carries on, not merely through oral and written traditions, but independent of them as a living awareness. Because lore is a collective of layered energies, even in a single story, it may be greater, deeper, even than one's soul. I would suggest it may be the very oversoul of mankind, and its greatest secrets lie not in its words but in its living consciousness that embodies even that which seeks to understand it.
