There should probably be an entire library built for humanity that specializes exclusively in texts that discuss things for which we have no evidence of existing. We could start with tomes dedicated to every mythological beast conceived of by mankind since the first common ancestor crawled from the trees. We could move on to voluminous texts covering every mythical object from the Philosopher Stone, to Excalibur, to the concept of Ether. Think of the intellectual powerhouse one would be after emerging from ten years of reading in such a library. Why, you'd be a veritable expert on SHIT THAT DOESN'T EXIST!!!
