I am going to mention a variety - in no particular order. Buying condoms for the first time. Buying tampons. Buying... When we acquire something we never had before. Beating up someone. Facing that bully. Defending a friend. Putting your life on the line. When we face new levels of violence both inn...

I would like to suggest making a three or four page limit to all topics. A new topic can always be made based upon whatever permutation the original topic went thru by the fourth or third page. One could also place a link in the original. This will make it easier for people too enter into conversati...

The Most Powerful Rite

What is the most powerful rite you have ever seen or participated in? Why is it powerful? What myth was it reflecting/invoking if any?

I must ponder my answer myself but I thought I would throw this question out there into the associated unknown before I decided not too.

Dusting off this thread for a quick observation. Rites are made and done wether or not they have been done before. It is a natural response to change. Be it biological, mental, physical, environmental change that happens to the individual, there will always rise an urge to mark that moment even if m...

Hello Lizpete - I have not clarified what form of archetype I was referring too. A greater one - involving the whole civic/rustic environment of a smaller european city. I wish to keep my experience vague for the reason of gaining (hopefully) an unbiased and intuitive response from other associates....

Rejecting a Archetype

Has anyone had the experience of rejecting an archetype?

I mean this in the fullest sense.

tat tvam asi - Was wondering if you have delved into the Genesis story? I have come across many similar versions with interesting nuances. To give an example; some version's involve a proto-creatrix making the old testament god without his knowledge & leaving him with the idea that he was alone. She...

Greetings - Ye all cover allot of ground. History vs. Faith? History vs. Belief? History vs. History? Can any thought of one fall outside the all that contains the one? Infinite truth - infinite lie. An example: There have been mighty floods. Some of that time augered well. They built boats - they s...

Hey -

Well, after about 10 had viewed this post and left no response either way - any actual relative truth to the event was lost. But thanks for the response and acknowledgement.

What do you think it says about the human need to create myth? It is the definition but not the truth. What about the tendancy to believe in a supernatural benefactor? That is reflex. Do you think that this gives perspective to the historical development other myths (especially our own), or is it t...
