EmbraceOver the weekend, I was able to finish "The Power of Myth", a book containing transcripts of a televised discussion between philosopher Joseph Campbell and journalist Bill Moyers. Even though it didn't come down easy, the book was a very good read and made a lot of sense.
Aristophanes says that in the beginning there were creatures composed of what now are two human beings. The gods then split them all in two. But after they had been split apart, all they could think of to do was to embrace each other in order to reconstitute the original units. So we all now spend our lives trying to find and embrace our other halves.
