We imagine and create
It's an honor to have energetic creatures of such astounding significance as part of the enormous collective of life on Earth coexisting with mankind. The presence of unexplained beings here in spirit, even if mainstream science may not have evidence of their existence, is indeed a privilege to witness. Cryptids are sometimes referred as conjured creatures and manifestations of imagination, sometimes from unknown regions of the mind.
However, legends of mankind demonstrate a deeper, unparalleled connectivity with life beyond simplistic psychologies of creating stories. Human life swirled into existence on Earth of all places in the universe and, along with it came the fantastic notion of consciousness. In principal, all life on this planet with or without proven consciousness, shares a root commonality in the fact life is specifically here, at this point in the universe; A presumably rare inhabitable paradise teaming with fresh oxygen, liquid water, and abundant food resources. As far as we know Earth is life's tropical paradise of the known universe, not only because of multifariousness examples of how life can exist, but also because the multiplicity exists in a most ideal location.
Fortunately for mankind, planet Earth rests in a region of the solar system where the temperature is not too hot and not too cold, allowing life to flourish for millions of years. Science deems this near perfect area, a Goldie Locks zone, and has begun actively searching to find similar zones throughout the cosmos. It's very intriguing to think of all places in the entire universe, life is here along with imagination and creativity.
