I cannot, therefore, visualise her composition being handed down by male bards: nor can I envisage a parallel female bardic tradition in ancient Sumer!

What does a Heracles, or a Helen of Troy, have in common with the archetypal male and female powers identified in the Egyptian creation legend? The answer is, in the most radical sense, everything.

... that mark out the four regions or quarters of the celestial habitation. So too, the comet-like "hair" whirling in the heavens will trace to early images, such as those from Sumer, showing the arms of the swastika as the long- flowing hair of female figures. Hence, the presence of a swastika in the center of the labyrinth is a crucial piece of evidence. It needs to be emphasized here that the identification of Shiva's dance with the famous dance of the Theseus will not be justified by a mere reading ... heart of carnelian" which Egyptian texts identify with such warrior heroes as Shu and Horus (Mars, in our reconstruction). This innermost masculine heart is presented within (i.e., in conjunction with) the feminine hati-heart of Re, The hieroglyphic image shows a male figure in a dancing posture virtually identical to that of Shiva, who similarly stands in conjunction with the Hindu mother goddess. But none of these images seems to be intelligible to Egyptologists or other specialists. Thus, they do not notice that the swastika itself symbolized ...

De typisch menselijke trekjes in de houding tegenover de natuurgeest, die natuurlijk wel degelijk voorkomen, zijn in feite aanvullingen op een veel bredere geloofsvoorstelling, die niet logisch te herleiden is tot de normale omgang tussen mens en plant. Deze geloofsvoorstelling moet verklaard worden tegen de achtergrond van mythische archetypen- zoals elke geloofsvoorstelling overigens. Mythische archetypen zijn de sleutel tot de oplossing van ons vraagstuk. Tegenwoordig wordt dit in brede kring erkend, waarbij men de mythische archetypen onder ... feest ook daadwerkelijk terug in den beginne, dan volgt hieruit dat de wereld in de beleving van de antieke mens elk jaar vergaat en herschapen wordt, juist zoals Eliade betoogd heeft: [3 de tijd die men doorbrengt tijdens een ritueel staat stil ten opzichte van de 'normale' tijd en valt samen met het oorspronkelijke mythische tijdvak in illo tempore Het rituele spel op de jaarfeesten gaf in feite een mythische cyclus aan, die elk jaar opnieuw aanving.
