In our current context, while some mythologies are given to us, some others are created anew or the old ones are, so-to-say, modified to fit our current context. But we will restrict ourselves to the pre-existing myths and the problem of attaching modern concepts to them. Any idea, concept or event is necessarily rooted in its cultural, geographical and historical specificity. For example, if we take medicinal study in pre-modern times in India, of course there must have been some form of science prevailing but it must have been very much different from contemporary medical science based on pharmaceutical manufacturing. In fact even today if we consider Ayurveda as an indigenous form of treatment, the source of knowledge is different from that of allopathic treatment. Of course, both of them qualify as medical study or research, but to reduce all differences to object and aim of study is for our purposes irrelevant as it does not help us much beyond stating a generality or perhaps something as obvious as- all living human beings breathe.
