SOUL – it is the concept that connects you to the
Morality – sin: it is an extra level of
behavior control. You have to fear the

The myth of this century is that we do not believe in them.
Myth is a strategy that translates an experience.
Your myth is your filter; it organizes and prioritizes your observations. The durations matter as

We have to understand the myths because they are basis of reality.
There is an interface, its real but it’s your version of reality. It’s a version that comes through
mythology such as faith, it’s something you believe that comes to you and you comprehend it in

the 100 other. You cannot be sure.
