"Legends are how we used to explain the world. Naming was a way of taking control of the landscape. We could never construct a myth like that out of the landscape now - but we still name it - we just use scientific language and describe it in terms of tectonic plate movements and other geological explanations for rocks, hills and mountains (in a volatile landscape like we have in New Zealand that story is being rewritten all the time). Needless to say we are still active mythmakers, just not in that old way anymore."
