A myth is an image in terms of which we try to make sense of the world.
The myths underlying our culture and underlying our
common sense have not taught us to feel identical with the universe, but
only parts of it, only in it, only confronting it - aliens.
But I'll tell you what hermits realize. If you go off
into a far, far forest and get very quiet, you'll come to understand
that you're connected with everything. ~ all quotes by Alan Watts
