Random quote of the day:


“Traditional societies do not distinguish between myth and history in the way we do. Mythical events were not thought to have literally happened; yet in another sense they were true, as if they had….Conversely, historical events are always mythologized (the Trojan war, for example). It is as if what literally happened is less important than what metaphorically happened. But the two are combined to create what ‘really’ happened.”

—Patrick Harpur, The Philosophers’ Secret Fire
