Meaningful existence is impossible without myth.
When reality is limited to the material world, thoughts, emotions, imaginations, spirit and life itself are reduced. They are understood as observed from the outside...
There is a time when we have to remove the old clothes, that already have the shape of our bodies, and forget our ways, that lead us the same places. It is time of the crossing: and if we do not dare to do so, we remain forever on the shores of our own."
Fernando Teixeira de Andrade
