3 In Campbell’s view, myths are the ‘inexhaustible energies of the cosmos’ manifest in the human psyche — either taking shape in the imagination or revealed through direct visionary revelation. Myths are a record of humanity’s spiritual history, and they have formed the foundation of world views past and present. Woven around the lives of spiritual teachers and prophets such as the Buddha, Jesus, and Krishna, myths have given rise to the major religions, which have in turn shaped and sustained the world’s great civilizations.

What we need, therefore, is a unifying symbol, or set of symbols, applicable in all parts of the globe, that speaks to our common humanity and our shared existence on the Earth and in the universe, but that also supports an individual perspective. Such symbols might enable humanity to transcend the parochial, partisan, absolutist, and literal religious beliefs from which so many of our most serious contemporary problems arise. ’14 For a mythic perspective to adequately fulfil this sociological function, therefore, the particular symbols it evokes and reveres must reside in something more than the imagination; a valid mythic perspective must reflect and be rooted in an order transcending that of the individual human mind or the relative and transient values and mores of a particular local culture.
