The Mythic Engine Kick-Starts a New Mythology. Conversation with Mythologists Willi Paul and Shari Tarbet. + PDF from

Planetshifter.com Media



Willi: Are we creating new archetypes and symbols or just adding paint to the existing ones?

Shari: I can see where new symbols emerge because to understand an archetype visually, the symbol has to be relevant to those viewing it for them to gain meaning. As far as archetypes go, I don't believe that new ones are created because of what archetypes are. However, let's say the possibility exists that an archetype that has always been there might not have always been evident to human beings, and that might emerge only at a time when humans are ready to 'get it'. In my view we see in our current lives the archetypes that have always been, both in the classic ways and as they apply to our situations which we think of as new.
