Joseph Campbell wrote, “The material of myth is the material of our life, the material of our body, and the material of our environment, and a living, vital mythology deals with these in terms that are appropriate to the nature of the knowledge of time.”

Where are we headed as a civilization, as we continually become more interdependent, economically and socially?

Hi Jeremy, I think that your group has the potential to be very interesting, but I find your quotation slightly confusing... Why have you given myth such a central position? I would have thought that a very pertinent question is that the emergence of a "planetary civilisation" goes hand in hand with the growing prominence of identity politics at the moment...

Well, Jeremy, we almost have a quorum. Why do you want to predict where we are going instead of suggesting where we might want to go? And would you like to say why you chose the Campbell quote? Is it from Hero with a 100 Faces? I don't get it. Perhaps you would like to take a definite lead in this thing you started.
