life, although it is more complicated than that.
Mythos (mythology): expresses ethos. The spiritual writings of a group of people.
Left brain (bring ethos and mythos into the physical world)
We can bring ethos into the physical world by getting baptized; holding ceremonies, rituals, or rites
based on the bible.

The idea is that you prove it in the real world
