“We are living in what the Greeks called the kairos—the right moment—for a ‘metamorphosis of the gods,’ of the fundamental principles and symbols. This peculiarity of our time is the expression of the unconscious human within us who is changing. Coming generations will have to take account of this momentous transformation if humanity is not to destroy itself through the might of its own technology and science. So much is at stake and so much depends on the psychological constitution of the modern human.” – Carl Jung

mythology-and therefore civilization-is a poetic,supernormal image,conceived, like all poetry, in depth, but susceptible of interpretation on various levels. The SHAllowest minDs see in it the local scenery; the deepest, the foreground of the void;and between are all the stages of the way from the ethic to the elementary idea, the local to the universal being, which is everyman, as he both knows and is afraid to know. For the human mind in its polarity of the male and female modes of experience, in its passages from infancy to adulthood and old age, in its toughness and tenderness, and in its continuing dialogue with the world, is the ultimate mythogenetic zone-the creator and destroyer,the slave and yet the master, of all the gods. Joseph Campbell
