"The myth is the public domain and the dream is the private myth. If your private myth, your dream, happens to coincide with that of the society, you are in good accord with your group. If it isn't, you've got a long adventure in the dark forest ahead of you."
The Public Myth is that man is made in the image of God and that animals are made in the image of man. But the reality is that man created God and man is made in the image of the animals who are evolutionary relatives.
