“We’re so engaged in doing things to achieve purposes of outer value that we forget that the inner value, the rapture that is associated with being alive, is what it’s all about.”
― Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth
Walt Disney is cryogenically frozen, Newton was hit by an apple, Eve ate an apple, The Lost city of Atlantis, Man never landed on the moon, Elvis is dead-Ok maybe the last one true.
We create myths, sometimes it seems they create themselves, out of real events but mostly they are complete fabrications. They are supposed to entertain, carry some ideas throughout the ages but modern myths seem to be more about satisfying a sophomoric desire to prank someone; unless you really think there are mutant alligators in the sewers, Psst…don’t tell anyone there really are.
Already the divisive myths are being used on you; to indoctrinate you, to make you fall in line, to keep you from questioning. The front-runner myth in politics at this time is that Bernie Sanders is not electable, but if you are a lib/dem and are critical of Hillary Clinton then you are said playing right into the RIGHT-WINGER’S hands….yes, folks! free independent thinking is the enemy, for some there is great comfort in being part of group think. So go listen to the Pied Pipers of the Internet—I’m sticking with Sanders until Xenu returns.
