Time to sit by the Campfire...

Contemporary Mythology:

The wasteland theory
contends that all would be a wasteland inhabited by savages were it not for the intervention of contemporary civilization.

The term "civilization" creates a convenient distinction between savage and contemporary man.

The savage is obviously incapable of comprehending this concept. Civilized man is rarely, if ever, called upon to explain it - yet free to use it limitlessly to justify whatever he chooses.

The language of the spirit becomes either the rambling of the wasteland savage or the expressions of a perceptive, sensitive contemporary human.

 

Spiritual sense of wonder lost,
ghostly silhouettes on cave-walls lost
lost to comprehension....
