    This paper presents an evolutionary computing system which generates images representing myths of human culture as synthetic identities. The myths are described by categorized terms, images and sounds, which are combined by genetic algorithms to produce new individuals with emerging features and behavior in real time. Objects are parametrically rendered in order to represent each myth, according to their genetic code managed by the artificial intelligence sub-system.
