Humans are mythology-machines

Humans are mythology-machines, we make and absorb meaning.

I trust no one who views Truth (with a Capital T) as anything but a myth that is taken seriously, dogmatically, with all its implications and applications for living.

We are machines in that our bodies are biological systems and our primary senses do quite a good job of measuring the world.

Thus for us it is important to maintain a healthly body and mythology. The latter is ideally one of joy. Good food, good myths; the absence of toxins and diseases; the absence of negative emotions, and people and situations which, through our prior conditioning, engender them; transformational myths which take the bad and reinterpret it as good; humour — all this is needed for the human to thrive.
