One of my favorite excerpts from the Mary Watkins book " Waking Dreams": " We have skillfully tried to strain the mythical from the scientific, the imaginary from the real, metaphor from matter.  We have used science to tell us just what "reality" really is and we have taken our scissors of reason and accordingly trimmed into the waste basket the apparently superfluous and contradictory.  We have chased the gods from the stones, the animals, and the heavens in the hope that we will be left with a clear and modern idea of matter into life." Without myth and metaphor we are left with a drab world.
