Greeting on this peaceful Sabbath day.
The astonishing (1988) debut of the renowned: "Power of the Myth" PBS series (especially following Dr Campbell's death quickly-thereafter) began the "concourse" of Jung and Campbell: New Agers sometimes mentioned both names in the same breath!

1) Every civilization had (and still needs) the sanction of a "living" Myth.
2) Conventional "Christianity" is (fatally?) deficient in: Resolution of the "opposites" and insufficient participation-mystique of the Feminine; both involving the (everlasting?) spirit/flesh duality (spirit=good/flesh=bad), i.e., Logos=good/Eros=bad.…
