One, our "creation" and "open flood adherents, one of the main contents of Rebuilding Human" the myth of the fusion of mythology, is clear, the origin and formation of life, psychological development, and its change rule. Myth is not fixed. It except in special circumstances fixed in the literature, in the oral tradition of state (or called "natural flow"), from content to form, is gradually in the flow, change and development. And this kind of change and development, and is influenced by certain regularity constraints. Therefore, we should raise the level of research in this area, the folk myth was found, which gives us more favorable terms. For example, the "Pan Gu opens the creation" and "flood survivors, Rebuilding Human", the two groups in the mythology in the world with a sense of, on the "doomsday and the destruction of myth," in ancient literature has three Wu Xu full "three five Li Ji", "Five" transport calendar age, beam generation of any anti "Shu Yi Ji" and Tang Lirong's "alone disloyalty". However, in the recent two or three years, along with the folk literature to explore, organize the work of gradually deepening, the Central Plains area of such variants have also come out of the myth. This makes us greatly broaden the horizons, but also raised new questions.......
