A former co-worker of mine from China told me this story. She told it as though she believed it was true:
5000 years ago, some people in China teleported visited the moon and then came back to Earth. They got there via teleportation. They brought back a rock from the moon. You can tell the rock is from the moon because it looks like a tree (!). This rock is still on display somewhere in China, to this day.
Does this story sound like a recognizable Chinese folk myth, or religious tradition? I’m just wondering if this is a traditional folk tale, or if my co-worker was taken in by a charlatan showing her a “moon rock.” Said co-worker DID seem rather gullible.
