“The meeting with the goddess (who is incarnate in every woman) is the final test of the talent of the hero to win the boon of love (charity: amor fati), which is life itself enjoyed as the encasement of eternity.” (99) The meeting with the goddess represents the point in the story when the person has the chance to experience a love that has importance of the all-powerful, all encompassing, unconditional love that a fortunate infant may experience with his or her mother. This is an ideal that is reflected by Sigmund Freud, who is quotes at the beginning if the book this is the part of the adventure when the person begins to see him or herself as someone that belongs to a pair. This is a very important step in the process and is often represented by the person finding the other person that he or she loves most completely. This reflects a part in the Symposium, when Aristophanes, a comedian of his time tells the story of how humans once were. He said that we were once two humans as one. For example, we had two heads, four legs, four arms. The humans tried to ascend to the heavens to attack the gods. Zeus got angry and punished them by cutting the humans in half, as we are today. So for the rest of eternity, we would have to spend our lives looking for our other half. This is the point in the story where they see they belong with another person. An example outside the book of the meeting with the goddess is in the movie star wars. Luke finds princess Leia. When Luke discovers that Leia is his sister, although the love element is lost, it is replaced with an unbreakable kin connection. It has a bit of a twist because she is his sister. According to the book, “She is the mother, sister, mistress, bride.” (92) So all of these titles can be the meeting with the goddess. Another mythological story that makes me…

religions are true, but none are literal." That is, he concluded that all religions are really containers for the same essential truth, and the trick is to avoid mistaking the wrappings for the diamond.
Lucas had already written two drafts of Star Wars when he rediscovered Joseph Campbell's The Hero With a Thousand Faces in 1975 (having read it years before in college). This blueprint for "The Hero's Journey" gave Lucas the focus he needed to draw his sprawling imaginary universe into a single…
An essay on star wars
'Brilliant', 'Quite Good', 'What?', these are just some of the comments made recently in the press regarding star wars. The constantly changing fashionable take on star wars demonstrates the depth of the subject. While it has been acknowledged that it has an important part to play in the development of man, its influence on western cinema has not been given proper recognition.

The birth of a star is a very long and complex process. It take a great length of time for a nebulae, which is a cloud of gas and dust in space, to transform into a full-fledged star. The most basic process of a star’s formation is that stars develop due to the gathering of enough matter to achieve a critical mass around 80 times of what Jupiter’s mass is. At this point internal pressures increase the core temperatures high enough to spark nuclear fusion. Brown dwarfs are an example of a type…
