The Influence of Mythology in War

Western society often forgets the importance of mythology and its place in the development of society. Archaeologists know now that it was mythology that made hunter gatherers into farmers. Ancient man created stories that placed them at a higher position than animals, given man was given  dominion above nature and all creatures catholicism tells. Then instead of man seeing animals as spirits they saw animals as something to be controlled for mans use and eventually dominated. It was mythology of the greatness of man that some cultures became comfortable with the domination of animals.

In all religions and mythology there is the belief in resurrection. Than a person can die but the death is not permanent. Death can be overcome and the persons spirit travels to the afterlife. Then there are the differences in what the afterlife is. Apparently this makes us superior because in most mythology and religion animals and plants do not have a soul.

We have all become aware of the influence of religion and how some people see themselves as the only true religion and this too has carried on for many years. How this belief results in murder, bombings and war. The symbolism is used my many religious leaders to lead their flock against the heathens whose religion is wrong and so they deserve to die for their ignorance.

Is psychology there is talk of what is called a unified conciousness. That we are all unified at a deep level by a kind of energy that is not yet understood. Imagine if we all realized That we are one. That we are not divided, that is a false belief. Would we all attempt to care for each other then if this link was proven?

We do not need to be conquered by aliens to be at risk of annihalation. We can annihalate ourselves. We are the greatest threat to ourselves. Lets come to realize our similarities not our differences.
