David O'Rose replied to Depth Alliance's discussion Join the current "Depth Discussion": Does our culture have a "living myth"?
"Perhaps our myth is that we have no myth. We are riding the oceans on a whale and we don't see the whale which carries us. Then again we may not need to be conscious of the whale. Just hang on for dear life and enjoy the ride."

And he turned over and…"
