Lol. Turns out there’s one advantage to using your phone or iPad to follow the forums — quick access to emojis. 😉
Thanks, Stephen! Yeah, Campbell conceived of the Hero Journey as a protean process, not a linear series of landmarks. My experience watching and reading a lot of popular works that have hewn to the schema is that with many I feel as if I can hear the creator turn the pages of The Hero with a Thousand Faces as I’m watching or reading. Which, as you say, and as I was trying to suggest, seems to be missing the point.
And yes, I am talking about The Matrix, why do you ask? 😉😉😉
