Throughout our development as a civilization, mankind has searched for meaning and significance. As we developed into a human race, we created (even in the most archaic fashions) rites and rituals that symbolically assisted us in our approach to the intangible secrets of life and death. It was through the metaphysical, cosmogonic and apocalyptic mythologies that we secured a sense of comfort, satisfaction and even a level of ethics upon which many of our laws are based. Now, in a world dominated by science, technology, globalization and conflict (which are often based upon these “intangibles”) we are faced with the question of how to transform these archaic thoughts into modern day principles? How can we transcend this search for meaning into a tangible human experience? How can we, with the assistance of religious thought become more aware of our own humanity?
