Friday 12 October 2012 – Joseph Campbell & Star Wars…

“Star Wars deals with the essential problem: Is the machine going to control humanity, or is the machine going to serve humanity? Darth Vader is a man taken over by a machine, he becomes a machine, and the state itself is a machine. There is no humanity in the state. What runs the world is economics and politics, and they have nothing to do with the spiritual life. So we are left with this void. It’s the job of the artists to create the new myths. Myths come from the artists.” Joseph Campbell, interviewed by Chris Goodrich, Publisher’s Weekly (1985).

A beautifully comprised conceptual piece of philosophical thought from one of the greatest minds of our time… Myth, what a wonderfully enlightening aspect of the human condition. The beauty is that as we personally and interpersonally  evolve ourselves and together these individualised myths can live together collaboratively in peace and clarity… SS.
