Joseph Campbell gave an interview in which he describes the effect of the first photos of earth from the moon.  The 'Earthrise' interview can be seen online here -

Joseph Campbell 'Earthrise' Interview

Let's discuss the symbols of the modern world - the Internet, airplanes, cars, mobile phones, Facebook, email, science fiction, space exploration, cinema, computer games, medical implants etc.  Are these new symbols challenging the world-view we've inherited from our ancestors?  Are they being integrated into our belief systems?
