This won’t take long.
Let’s assume that you, dear Reader, buy into some of my wild mystical blather here. The one thing you are going to run into again and again is the Straw Man attack. Our society fears mysticism, and says that we simply must cling to rationalism. That’s because, without the safety barrier or concrete logic, all those nasty horrible things that we see in TV and movies will break loose.
Once again, it’s the false dichotomy: If we don’t have straight up, hard objective reality, then we will have horrors and nightmares stalking the streets. Stay inside the gray walls of logic, boys and girls, or the zombies will eat your brains!
Of course, that’s all just an extension of the dark and dreary world of Beowulf. It’s the Grimm’s Brothers fairy tales to keep you in your place. It’s the Devil’s way of keeping you from your divine heritage. As long as you can keep all of that in mind, the bogus mythology inherent in Western entertainment cannot seduce you.
