Myths move

Ecosystems are constituted by constant cycles of decay and regrowth. We can replant myth in ecology by understanding that storytelling, too, remains healthy when it goes through cycles, decaying, regrowing, and adapting to suit shifting climatological and social pressures. We can examine oral storytelling, forest ecosystems, fungal spores, and a rich mythology of storm gods to begin to understand how we cannot prize ascension over descent, text over spoken word. Healthy mythologies grow connective tissue between dualisms, cultivating fertile mythic gradients between opposing ideologies. Conversely, we can look at what happens when these mythic cycles get interrupted in the examples of patriarchy and material reductionism.
