"I called this lecture the DISCOVERY OF THE FUTURE and I drew a hard distinction between what I called the LEGAL (past-regarding) and the CREATIVE (future-regarding) minds.  I insisted that we overrated the darkness of the future, that by adequate analysis of contemporary processes its conditions could be brought within a range of our knowledge and its form controlled, and that mankind was at the dawn of a great changeover from life regarded as a system of consequences to a system of constructive effort.  I did not say the future would be foretold but that its conditions could be foretold.  We should be less and less bound by the engagement of the past and more and more ruled by a realization of the creative efforts of our acts.  We should release ourselves more and more from the stranglehold of past things."

                             

                                 - H. G. Wells

"We have not even to risk the adventure alone, for the heroes of all time have gone before us.  The Labyrinth is fully known.  We have only to follow the thread of the hero path, and where we had thought to find an abomination, we find a god.  And where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves.  Where we had thought to travel outward, we come to the center of our own existence.  And where we had thought to be alone, we will be one with all the world."

Joseph Campbell, 1990
