SCOD Legendary Myth and Hero References
SCOD itself exists as multiple amalgams of various ideas, but is never restricted even to one particular mixture. Even a vision of Utopia or Paradise is different for everyone, yet SCOD does not claim permanent perfection. Many believe that our human existence only allows glimpses of archetypal enlightenment, regardless; SCOD strives for Organic Sustainability for humans.
