Behold the Monomyth!



This is work done by Joseph Cambell, who inspired George Lucas to create Star Wars, who inspired viewers to begin a hero's journey of their own.
But, uh...well there it is.

Cool find... always liked Joseph Campbell's take on religion, heroes and Star Wars.

I actually found it because of a YouTuber I follow. He referenced the books "The Hero With A Thousand Faces" and "The Hero's Journey". Both done by Joseph Cambell.
But, uh...well there it is.

Mark Hamill reacts to new 'Star Wars' title.



“Our Father who art in nature, who has given the gift of survival to the coyote, the common brown rat, the English sparrow, the house fly and the moth, must have a great and overwhelming love for no-goods and blots-on-the-town and bums, and Mack and the boys. Virtues and graces and laziness and zest. Our Father who art in nature.”
― John Steinbeck
