The belief in certain fundamental myths in an investigation of different peoples and nations’ mythologies is plausible. These fundamental myths are the origins and prototypes of the more recent ones. There are several reasons why fundamental myths, either or partially, may be forgotten. However, they will never become entirely extinct. Over long periods in history and in the process of dusting the collective unconscious, they will be recreated and reconstructed within other mythical narratives. As an example, one may refer to the reconstruction of “Djam-e Djam” in “Kay Khosrow” myth. Like fitting pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, through examination of more recent mythologies we may put the forgotten parts of the fundamental myths in order to gain access to their essence. In this paper, the mythical account of “Djamshid” has been examined as a fundamental myth for the birth of regenerative myths.
