The Power of Myth

Whenever one moves out of the transcendent, one comes into a field of opposites. One has eaten of the tree of knowledge, not only of good and evil, but of male and female, of right and wrong, of this and that, and light and dark. Everything in the field of time is dual: past and future, dead and alive, being and nonbeing. But the ultimate pair in the imagination are male and female, the male being the warrior, the female the dreamer. We have the realm of love and the realm of war, Freud’s Eros and Thanatos. Pg. 82
