Well is there any mention of Pan-Dimensional Super Mice in any of the Myths?

Actually, yes.

While the term 'pan-dimensional' is not used, overly intelligent mice are often found in mythology.

Here are but a few examples:

1) Wizard of Oz

Mice help Dorothy... In the poppy field if I'm not mistaken. (story version only)

2) Aesop's Fable: The Mouse and the Lion
http://www.greatbooks.org/library/selections/lion&mouse.shtml
Mouse saves lion and proves that little is not necessarily worse.

3) The Transformed Mouse Who Seeks a Bridegroom
http://www.pitt.edu/~dash/type2031c.html
Indian myth. A girl seeks to marry the most powerful being. After rejecting the sun, cloud, wind, and mountain. She settles upon the mouse for he is truly the most powerful.

If you include Oz as Myth or Legend, then you have to include HHGTTG, in which case, there you go....

.... Which could make us Myths/Legends....

Many pardons, I admit, WoOz is not a myth/legend, but rather a piece of literature. However, the myth I originally had there proved slightly faulty, so I hastily replaced it. I do not intend to say that we are, in any way, myths or legends, merely trying to show that the superiority of mice is shown often throughout the past.

Many times, when a damsel is in distress or has some impossible task to fulfill, it is mice that help her. I thought this was true for Psyche and Eros, but I was mistaken, so I simply subsituted in similar situation. If you would prefer for me to leave the literary example and give the basis for that example (aka the myths) then I shall. Whatever it takes to earn the position.

Many thank you's, I shall fulfill my position to the best of my abilities.

Could we ever actually teach classes? Perhaps through posting a lesson to the Uni or perhaps a guide entry?

That'd be a good idea, post a Guide Entry, stick a link here, maybe under a conversation entitled ONGOING CLASSES or something, inviting people across to make comments, ask further questions....

You could set [optional] homework smiley - yikesin a conversation about your entry...
