This episode of Living Myth begins in the midst of all the chaos in the world that includes terrorism, misogyny, bigotry and social injustice.  It tracks the origins of human resentment and misdeeds to a shared alienation that derives from the loss of a meaningful cosmology and a shared mythology.  A consideration of the universal dynamic of chaos and cosmos leads to the edge of the world where the human soul waits for a new vision of the interconnectedness of all life.

    I felt somewhat confused by your nostalgia for a shared cosmology which would somehow bring us all closer as human beings. The shared cosmology of this culture which is the Bible of the Judeo Christian culture disdains women, is an excuse to hate gay people, extolls one tribe against another. I happen to love the stories of the Bible and use them in my art work, but they do not bind us together with humanity except when we break free of them. I would say the same for the Greek myths, which again are rich and very human, but they don't tend to bring people in reverence for one another!
