|The word "Argonaut" comes from an ancient tale sung of the strongest and bravest band of heroes ever assembled in Greek Mythology -- Jason and the Argonauts. This myth chronicles Jason's quest for the Golden Fleece and the restoration of his family's throne.
Throughout the millennia, the quest for the Golden Fleece has become embedded in the cultures of the western world and "Argonaut" has become synonymous with "adventurer on a quest" and is reflected in words like astronaut, cosmonaut and aeronaut. The timeless appeal of Jason and the Argonauts may lead one to wonder if this myth owes its success to popular entertainment, or if Jason's quest speaks to us on a more fundamental level, as if a reflection of our own journeys through life, and perhaps the Golden Fleece is a metaphor for our own awakening to the golden truths of the universe.
