A Cognitive View of the Legend of â€œEL DORADOâ€
International Journal of Social Science Studies, 2023, vol. 11, issue 1, 50-53
The classical 1st attention spared in autism, the quantum 2nd attention hurt in it, and the classical-quantum blend (or 3rd attention) hurt in madness are echoed by the legend of El Doradoâ€”the Colombian Muisca coated with gold dust who released it after sailing to and diving into the center of Lake Guatavita. El Dorado suggests that nature re-creates finiteness (1st) through infinity (2nd) in nothingness (3rd). That vision makes the â€œlogos heuristics.â€ El Dorado, logos, Leonardo da Vinciâ€™s mural â€œFight for the Standard,â€ Alfred Wegenerâ€™s 1915 drift of continents, and plate tectonics tell us that Sir Walter Raleigh never wrote Shakespeareâ€™s plays (e.g., â€œThe Merchant of Veniceâ€ ). They also tell us that climatic avalanches can be barred by a Third Rome assembly, built at the very least by the USA, Ukraine, and Russia (Hitlerâ€™s nemeses). The Third-Rome should follow a Cincinnatus as wily as was in the 9th century the Viking St. Olga, her grandson St. Vladimir/Volodymyr, her Norse father-in-law RiÃºrik, or his great-grandson Yaroslav the Wise. The nothingness at the center of a circle/cross makes a shut door in the 2nd and an open door into the 3rd attention. Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus was a retired and mythical short-term dictator in the early Roman Republic.
