“The Transition Movement and the New Global Mythology” (+ PDF ver). By Willi Paul, Planetshifter.com Media
New Global Mythology is digitized, soil, people in synergy. Ideas / fodder / form flow back and forth in our geo-alchemy loop. Not a “one-way ride” or a “top down flip chart, Man.”
Interestingly, catalysts and symbols are the hub and are shared influences in the development of shared resources and media.
The Internet is a spiritual space in our hearts and on our screens that promotes universal awareness not technology for gadgets and chat sake. It is a high speed crucible for new mythologies and the awareness that comes with them.
As resilience is created, tested and shared in the Transition Movement, this force filters through the Internet bolstering other movements.
The impact / importance of Jung’s archetypes and subconscious in this model are debatable although indirectly represented in “symbols and inspirations.”
There are plenty of apocalyptic groups pushing their brand of mythology. Transition folks want to transform survivalism’s fear into a new global sharing and peace.
Journeys and initiations, made famous by Joseph Campbell, are in the permaculture backyard and on the Internet. Where do you want to plow?
