Hi Nandu It is true that it would seem that others are living mediocre lives from our point of view, but somewhere in that life we are probably not seeing what it is that they find joy in. I imagine many people could look at my life and say that it is rather a case of the "Grand Enuii", but I take p...

Hi I read Clemsy's post regarding John Lennon and found it interesting and thought about my interest in Micheal Nesmith. Nesmith and John Lennon were friends it is worth noting. Well John Lennon is valuable in the pantheon of Pop culture Heroes, but that type of Heroe is the result of supply and dem...

Clemsy is correct in that Mr.Campbell made accessible all of this important knowledge to a vast audience. I do believe that I rubbed Bliss the wrong way. Yes, if Campbell's thoughts had vanished before you came upon them then your life would maybe have been different. In that situation you would hav...

Thanks for all who responded! I do not agree that Lennon was the antithesis of the commercial pop world. I do not think the commercial pop world cared about Lennon's counter culture behavior. They embraced it as they embraced all of the changes that the Beatles made in the 1960's. I think John Lenno...

Thank you Clemsy for the welcome back!I do think that the Jewish religous postition(conversion etc.) on one hand is more enlightened than that of the other big faiths of Jerusalem,but the others are more inclusive if you follow their game plan. Jesus in his thinking saw the limitations of the Jewish...

That is correct the Jewish peeps do not seek converts.I read once that all other faiths are fine and are paths to God,so the Jews are not as bad as say the Christians and Moslems for instance. I had a lovely experience with the Jews as a boy and have a better memory of them than Christians.I do have...

I feel I must be more clear in this issue.For a person to be an anti-semite they would have to dislike all the peeps in the mideast to be anti-semites.Because to my knowledge the peeps in that region are known collectivley as Semites.Mr.Campbell was no anti-semite.

Furthermore,the term Anti-semite is misleading because everyone uses that term to describe someone who does not like Jews,but in truth it applies to all the folks in the mideast to my knowledge.Hence,how could Mr.Campbell be an anti-semite.It is silly.

Well I think that Joseph Campbell was contending with the major religous power of the mid east and the west mainly the Judeo Christian tradition.If he had been born a Hindu then maybe he would have greatly focoused on flaws in that theology.I do not think what differences Mr.Campbell had with the Ju...
