Circular thinking. What influenced the Celestial Twins? Mythology! It
only makes logical sense that the myth has to come _before_ creating
constellations based on these myths in the sky. So then, where does
this twin concept come from if not from astronomy? I've already stated
that the twins are related to the original sky-waters opposition,
initially represented by a bird and serpent. The two elements
represented as deities came to increasingly play a part in the Creatrix
imagery, becoming "twins", "two lovers" or "father & son".
