Freedom of thought



Philosophy is freedom of thought. It is asking things to tell one about them. In certain states of mind full of inexplicable yearnings, it can be a release into pictures… a tale or a myth. Myths of creation are philosophical excursions into the unknown. Scientific myths, like that of the “Big Bang” as well as the ancient ones, all come from the mind’s inquiry into the mysteries of the world and human existence.

It could not be too much to say that myth is the secret opening through which the inexhaustible energies of the cosmos pour into human cultural manifestation. Religions, philosophies, arts, the social forms of primitive and historic man, prime discoveries in science and technology, the very dreams that blister sleep, boil up from the basic, magic ring of myth.
