Just as with the myth making criterion advanced in the new turtle myth:
The Leatherneck Clan and the Black Sea Men: Building a Mythology Generator for the Sustainability Age by Willi Paul and David Metcalfe
Process steps or menu:
1. Define current event, players, short and long-term impacts, artistic, religious, ecological, political, spiritual implications
2. ID historic, literary, mythic precedents that relate to event
3. Chart all possible paths and outcomes from event
4. List universal lessons
6. Draft myth story line using new names, place(s) and symbols from world mythology
7. Check piece for universal not local or real reference(s)
8. Simplify and finalize myth avid Metcalfe
Any similar scheme needs to be disseminated and tested before much excitement is realized. But How?
Willi! I took a few days to sit inside the circle inside the triangle above. What I found there was Black Earth. Black Earth is the matter that nourishes:
* spirit/new alchemy (as prima materia);
* story/new mythology (as Gaia’s body); and
* science/permaculture (as sustainably designed ecosystems).
I celebrate Black Earth for carrying me from chaos to groundedness. I celebrate you, Willi, for this simple and elegant model that helped me see that.
I haven’t read ahead into Chapter 3 yet, but I feel very primed to now go to the Land of Khem (fertile black soil).
