The Polyphasic Body and Its Many Worlds

 

 

 

There are two kinds of people in the world, those who believe

there are two kinds of people in the world and those who don't.                                                                                    ––Robert Benchley

Do we live in a UNIverse or MULTIverse? Is it one world or many worlds? Most of us feel it as a true thing that we are all living in the same one world. We have many curious ways to disregard, not embody, the mounting evidence to the contrary. I am curious what our senses will allow us to 'see' if we learn to reset the constraints.

 

Joseph Cambell (Creative Mythology, Masks of  God, Book 4) wrote that one of the four goals of mythology is to see the world as it really it. This is the true song of the siren, luring sailors to shipwreck, the lure of hearing what actually happened, what is the true story. It is the appeal of the Grand Narrative, the story of all stories. I wonder what other cultures experience this problem or is this uniquely Western, inherited from the Greeks, along with many other errors we have constructed mansions upon.
