A Mythology of the Unseen

 

The human spirit perpetually unfolds like a wavy veil, frail but confident,
with a fragile but tenacious persistence in its sinuous movement. For every new
part which is revealed through this curvy progression, another one becomes
hidden, partially distorted and eventually forgotten, unreachable, such as the
foregone realities of our origin. For, in this case, our awareness is not
subject only to a rational and precious knowledge built upon the foundations of
reasoning, but also a matter of how accurately and intimately we perceive the
ancestral parts of the human experience, these fundamental fragments that are
getting covered by the veil, the links of the past that hold together the chain
of our spirit's evolution.

For even reason itself unfolded gradually. It first tried to methodically
express everything through unified theories that were including both rational
conclusions about the physical world and philosophical assumptions about  the intelligible one as well. These unified
theories were attempting an ambitious balance between a mere scientific thought
and the metaphysical ideas which dominated the world during the ancient times,
resulting both in what became the foundation of modern science but also in a
complicated corpus of mystical allegories and obscured interpretations over the
human experience.

There are limits to our perception, therefore we are not able to fully
perceive what is essentially mind-independent, free of form, shape and
definition. We are bound to keep addressing a mental version of reality,
limited within the confines of our understanding. Through Mythology the human
spirit could philosophically approach those remote areas of a system much
bigger than what we are able to perceive. As if through Myths, our spirit is
able to overcome the boundaries of the mind and expose our intuition to a much
greater reality, letting us lift the veil for a moment and feel what lies
underneath. These primordial narratives are not attempting an interpretation of
the unknown, but they offer an accumulation of the human experience, they talk
about the history of the Psyche or, as Freud described it, the distorted
vestiges of the wish-fantasies of whole nations, the age-long dreams of young
humanity. Then, in the form of a lucid dream, they reveal the archetypes that
connect us with the most distant areas of our spirit, where the seeds of our
evolution were first planted into the fertile soil of imagination.

Everything seems to have emerged from the realms of a dream, a parallel
universe in space and time without any observers but our own intuition. A world
without observers is a world without definitions and therefore things are
defined not by the way they appear but by the way they are. Infinite and
incomprehensible to our senses. This is where every new idea arises from,
within this vast realm of possibilities, so that everything is interpreted and
experienced in a new way every time we manage to push the boundaries of our
understanding a bit further. Myths continue to echo a signal sent from the very
first pulse of humanity, like a dream hanging between the oblivion of a distant
past and the revelation of a secret future, in a  world that breathes life into a new reality
every time we look at it.
