The presence of origin myths in language, such as that of the myth of the Babylonian split, implies that there is a unity prior to the division that exists in our current world. This orientation towards the myth of unity is what drives the creation of particular identifications, worldviews, and ideologies. We identify, adopt worldviews and ideologies, and create our own myths in the hopes that they will draw us towards that prior unity. “Identification is compensatory to division,” and it inherently lies within symbol systems (A Rhetoric of Motives, 22). Identification’s relation to division means that a prior unity does not and cannot exist, because all human beings use and misuse symbol systems. There is no way to separate ourselves from identification or myth. No matter how hard anyone will try, it is not possible for cooperation or any semblance of present unity to reach all the way to the mythical prior unity that is the goal of all human cooperation.

    So, they went back inside and sat there until they were called about 40 minutes later. By then, one of the towers had fallen and they knew that this was terrorism. When they got in the helicopter, my dad started putting in the address of where they were going. When he looked outside, he stopped putting in the address; they did not need it because they could see the thick, black smoke from the Pentagon. “There was not a cloud in the sky, not an airplane anywhere.” He said that this was unusual…

The course material used to create the mascot formed miniature canyons and mountains that, when touched, gave off a familiar touch. The detailed muscle tone and reared hooves of the stallion assisted the artist in creating an aura of natural power, which radiated outwards from the fountain. Surrounding it was a triangle, holding dozens of gallons of water, creating a platform for the beast.…
