SPK: ultra-modern trendy disorder is melanoma. i am such a lot confident that melanoma in many ways comprises a religion or trust mechanism. i do not believe it is in basic terms physicaldon't imagine any affliction is. i believe that perhaps the medication even comprises attempting to cooperate in a roundabout way .... it is only within the final couple hundred years that we have had the notion of growth, and with that we've got 20tten melanoma to boot. I certainly imagine melanoma is a byproduct of this civilization simply because it is at the elevate despite how a lot they spend on examine. it is maybe psychosomatic within the purest sense-you cannot separate the brain from the physique. R! S: How does melanoma healthy right into a glossy mythology? SPK: first of all, Durand analyzed and built-in most of these symbols into gigantic cross-cultural myths, organizing those archetypes into: Heroic, i. e the sword and the spear, the penile erection, and such things as that that are in many ways relocating upwards. Like a cobra .... you then had the intimate pictures; such things as digestion, or going down-the mom, water .. _. a strategy used to explqit the necessity to comply is to spend hours asking and shouting inquiries to which the prisoner can't in all likelihood recognize the answer-details of atomic weaponry. and so forth.

After that, the belief of the convulsion of every little thing: huge quick alterations, overall upheaval, an age of maximum mutations- such things as that which would come after the proliferation age .... All you really want to do is examine wave varieties and picture the type of overriding dynamics which would create definite eras on this planet. i believe we have passed through the growth period- that fab romantic period. We most likely went throughout the nice mystical cycle period besides very early on-pre-Christ. perhaps the darkish a while and the center a long time have been the good intimacy, lost-inthe-wilderness form of period. yet now, every little thing is in significant growth, relocating all instructions right away. and never inevitably towards apocalypse. it kind of feels like that is approximately to take place, yet that is been a favored trust for a long time. Ifyou examine what occurred within the yr 1000-there used to be mass hysteria all over the place Europe simply because all of them idea they have been in a millenial age then. we have consistently been within the millenial age! it is kind of ordinary that after you come back as much as the yr 2000, you predict all of it to take place in 1999. i do not quite imagine we are entering any nice Nostradamus-type prophecy.
