This morning's presentation by Jules Cashford was simultaneously illuminating and overwhelming. With the birth of each new god in the Greek pantheon, I found resonances with modern times. The story of Gaia as the Mother outlines a genesis of the development of human civilization, at least from a Western point of view. I would love to have a transcript of the talk and wonder if that might be possible. That way, I could follow Ariadne's thread from my resonance with this history and so connect this prolific development into the present day. Because I don't think it ends with the loss of the gods. I think Hillman was really onto something when he criticized monotheism. The gods are alive, just buried deeply in our collective unconscious.
