~ the fruit of immortality is poison ~

“the happy ending of the fairy tale, the myth, and the divine comedy of the soul, is to be read, not as a contradiction [to real life endings], but as a transendence of the universal tragedy of man… Tragedy is the shattering of the forms and of our attatchment to the forms; comedy, the wild and careless, inexaustable joy of life invincible. Thus the two are terms of a single mythological theme and experience which includes them both and which they are bound: the down-going and the up-coming (kathodos and anodos) which together constitute the totality of the revelation that is life, and which the individual must know and love if he is to be purged (kathodos = purgatorio) of the contagion of sin (disobedience to the divine will) and death (identification of the mortal form).” -Joseph Campbell, The Hero With A Thousand Faces.
