This article has been rated as High-importance on the project's importance scale.
It has been used as a literary device in stories such as Childhood's End, by Arthur C. Clarke, in which human ideas of demons are derived from folk memories of an alien race who had visited once before, and whose appearance portends the end of the human race.
I was going to add this but then I see from the other article that this was "reverse race memory" (it's been a while since I read it), that they were remembering the future or something.
Oh Arthur, you have so many opportunities to make sense, and you just toss them aside... - Omegatron 01:52, May 1, 2005 (UTC)
No offence, but I think it's a bit of a shame that this article has effectively developed into a list - e.g. I was thinking that a reference to the Walkington Wold burials might be useful here, as there's a WP:RS for folk memory there, but looking at this article as it now is, I think I'll leave that to someone else - I just wouldn't feel right simply adding an item to a list! I hope my mention of Walkington Wold burials is helpful, anyway... Nortonius (talk) 17:51, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
