From my (european) view to this initiated (by SG) perspective, local interpretations are moulded in local realities, and extremely temporarily through the mythical lens. What do the Gods cast upon us now? Yet another ordeal to cope with? Oh, how and why, to our knees, follow the leader-leader or accept utter mass-extinction.
Hmm… challenging times for sure, but no real threshold really. Climate, resources, population, diseases, migration, swift energy & food supplies? Our gods (they are our gods – ‘us ourselves’) don’t give a damn about us (‘us ourselves’). If that does not change, we’re extinct already.
Hope is the last resort once Pandora has opened our faith. (But don’t blame her, it’s we!)
