At the core of everyone’s psychology there is a myth, an unverifiable but very power motivator which is behind any human ambition. All ambition is driven by the belief that there is the possibility that something can happen wrapped in a bubble of ideals. There is no human in existence who does not have some form of myth as a core driver of their psychology. Even in the case of a perfect scientist there will be the myth of perfect discovery or exceptional free will.
These myths permeate society and come in a variety of different forms from religion to fiction. The reality is many will not see a convergence of their myth with reality in their lifetimes. Many of those that do see a convergence will usually give value to other characteristics of themselves before biologically ordained ones to hold up their myth of the exceptional free will. While it is certainly true that the hyper intelligent and/or attractive individuals need to have certain characteristics to potentially become successful, the first are almost always a requirement.
Much of our lives revolves around myth swapping, believing one thing and then when convergence is not realized, believing something else. If there is never a convergence or a convergence occurs, there is the possibility for disillusion. Without any form of illusion, Elolight, can never be reached. We must believe something can come into existence even if it seems impossible or even if it is out of reach by our current lives.
Sometimes myths may take on elaborate or, seemingly, magical characteristics. It is important however to see beyond those and see the true purpose of a myth. The glossy superfluous characteristics that may have been added to a myth is a way for their primary message to be easily transferred between humans in a non-threatening way. Almost all forms of art could be seen as a glossy wrapper for messages. Without context traversal or messaging you do not have art but instead have people or things. Even non lyrical music expresses the message of a variety of particular types of order.
Maturity is often represented as the dissolution of myth. This isn’t the case however, maturity is defined through restraint and conformity to established myths that have the greatest amount of utility to oneself. We move from believing in magical Santa Clause to believing that there is always a linear relationship between effort and accomplishment. The one thing we definitely don’t lose is our personal myths.
