It’s one thing to get the old structure of the hero myth, but now they are pitching it out into the void, into space, where it’s possible to let the imagination go. You’re not bound to historical fact. You get bound to history, and then you lose the spirit. That’s the problem with the Bible; everything gets to be historical instead of spiritually activated.
Pitching it out into the void
