"Every authentic function of the human spirit has this decisive characteristic in common with cognition: it does not merely copy but rather embodies an original, formative power. It does not express passively the mere fact that something is present but contains an independent energy of the human spirit through which the simple presence of the phenomenon assumes a definite meaning, a particular ideational content. This is as true of art as it is of cognition. It is as true of myth as it is of religion. All live in particular image-worlds which do not merely reflect the empirically given, but which rather produce it in accordance with an independent principle. Each of these functions creates its own symbolic forms which, if not similar to the intellectual symbols, enjoy equal rank as products of the human spirit. None of these forms can simply be reduced to, or derived from, the others; each of them designates a particular approach, in which and through which is constituted its own aspect of reality. They are not different modes in which an independent reality manifests itself to the human spirit but roads by which the spirit proceeds towards objectivization, i.e., self-realization." ( Ernst Cassirer; The Philosophy of Symbolic Forms; Volume 1, Language ).
NOTE: The animated sequence above utilizes audio of guitar work from YES' Steve Howe from the song AWAKEN. When disseminated for an upcoming Mythology centered series based on Charles Carver's artwork, the existing soundtrack will be replaced as part of production. This is an early glimpse of what's to come.
