The history of Lojban is already becoming shrouded in myth. If Loglan is purjbo (old-Lojban, or dzejbo, elder Lojban in the gismu list), the Lojban that existed prior to the Great Rafsi Shift of 7/93 is already partly unintelligible (including the poembook ziryroi by Michael Helsem (the word meant zirpu rokci) - whose very title now means something different) & must be considered mijyjbo (Middle Lojban). Here are some tales from lapoi pelxu ku'o trajynobli that pertain to the Loglan-Lojban split:

There are also instances of mythos built up through metaphors bandied about on the Lojban Mailing List:
