It means that we don't have any more excuses to pretend we don't know what we do. We have a heart that always lets us know and a conscience that will not allow us to claim ignorance.

Mythic Perspectives for a World in Distress
(from World Futures)
by David Feinstein, Ann Mortifee, and Stanley Krippner

EXCERPT

This essay is concerned with the myths that are leading us into an uncertain future, how they can be understood, how they can be worked with, and how they can be transformed. Some people think a myth is no more than a quaint relic from an antiquated culture, a fanciful story created to explain what is not known. More exactly, myth is the way people combine what is known and what is not known into the maps that guide them through their lives. We are continually making choices within largely uncharted waters. We can never be certain about where these choices will lead, yet we must choose. Our myths serve as the internal maps that invisibly guide us from one choice to the next. While a myth -- to be viable for the contemporary mind -- must be aligned with our capacity for rational thought, myth-making is as much with us today as it was thousands of years ago. Myth is, in fact, grounded in the quintessential human ability to address the large questions of existence using symbolism, metaphor, and narrative. And no other species has a guidance system that touches ours for promoting flexibility and creativity in responding to the environment.
