Today I was inquiring to myself about the mystery of the number 3...though I'm probably looking too deeply into this I have a superstition about the often meaningful coincidences.

I don't agree with the beef. Karen Armstrong the wonderful contemporary Religious Historian & author of the History of God recently published a book called the Great Transformation, the beginning of our religious traditions in which she argued that the one thing that all religions agree on is that o...

Is there a difference between ego & self-esteem? I want to take the Buddhist Campbellian follow your bliss route of not being compelled by fear & desire. & I certainly don't want an inflated ego-image of self, but at the same time I've always suffered from low-self-esteem namely in social situations...

Joseph Campbell talks frequently about mythologies being a perennial pool of insights on various topics. Love is obviously very important especially with the troubedors.

I asked around about my question concerning the difference between Jung's archetypes & Dawkin's memes & the sophisticated explanation I came upon was that Dawkin's 'memes' are the cultural ethnic ideas.

I believe the word "atheist" means someone who does not believe in a diety. So I guess I am an "atheist" in that sense. Though, I usually call myself agnostic to show that I am not condescending enough to rule out any possibilities. I think Karen Armstrong's explanation in her book the "History of G...

In fact, Joseph Campbell would probably agree with you that science is the future. Only, he believed th...

I agree that science should be the primary ideology insofar as the notion of showing fervent skepticism to any and all assumptions and of course the heralded value of evidence. However, I fervently reject any philosophical assumptions regarding the nature of reality. Prinicipally, any and all metaph...
