“Myths are subtle energies that manifest in our awareness as metaphorical images in narrative form. They both structure our perceptions of reality and create it at the same time. Myths thus enable us to both find and make our external world of “hard fact”—the two functions being inseparable, just as quantum physics tells us that the observer cannot be separated from that which is observed. Myths, in other words, are stories that spontaneously arise out of the abyssal depths of the human psyche (and I am here using this term literally, as the ancient Greeks did, to mean “soul”, and not mere “mind”, as modern psychologists do), just as our dreams do every night when we sleep.

We don’t invent myths; they invent us. As Joseph Campbell said, myths are public dreams and dreams are private myths. The difference is that the myth comes from a deeper psychic level and is addressed to the collective (primarily), whereas the dream comes from a relatively shallower psychic level and is addressed (principally) to the individual. But there is often overlap and these distinctions are never absolute.”
