Audiences respond to three things in the films of Nichoas Roeg. The first is their extraordinary power, the second their vivid style. The third has to do with the fact that they present the viewer with puzzles (often about people whom audiences half recognise, but cannot immediately understand). The author argues that all three elements are tied together, with the power of the films springing from their source in ancient mysteries. By adapting the methods of the psychoanalyst C.G.Jung, he shows how Roeg reworks myth in order to reach into the unconscious of late 20th century humanity. These new, cinematic myths do more than reveal the motivation of Roeg's characters - they so excite the desire for greater understanding that spectators become involved in a quest of their own and seek out improved self-knowledge.

Presents a study of mythology based on the analysis of nonlinear form, the self's confrontation with its world, and the nature of mythic truth. Drawing on texts world-wide and on many theorists, including Cassirer, Eliade, Jung, Levi-Strauss, and Buber, the book develops a complex view of the relation between consciousness and culture. A conception of nonlinear, or 'qualitative, ' logic provides the basis for a survey of mythic space, time, cause, identity, and values, with an emphasis on the experience of wonder through mythic imagery and narrative processes

Mind Is A Myth

This is a scathing critique of contemporary spirituality by one of its most unusual figures. In a world in which spiritual techniques, teachers, concepts, and organisations are legion, U G Krishnamurti stands nearly alone in his rejection of it all: the natural state is a causal: it just happens. The author does not equate the natural state with enlightenment, which he describes as an illusion created by our culture. He states emphatically that one can do nothing to attain the natural state.
