Dr Witzel essentially performed a genealogy of mythemes such as ‘world tree’ and ‘warring brothers’ and ‘separation of earth and sky’ by examining in which modern cultures they appear and then looking back through our genetic history for the last time the ancestors of these modern cultures were in the ‘same place’. This made the great civilisations of the ancient world –Sumer, the Indus and Egypt- ‘secondary centres of mythological innovation’. Mythology did not originate in these centres but was dramatically transformed by them. The stories themselves were on the move beforehand and after.
