Order Out of Chaos

“Whether you call someone a hero or monster is all relative to where the focus of your consciousness may be” - Joseph Campbell

This idea is not new to society or hopefully shouldn’t be because in movies, plays, songs and most importantly real life we brand people (sometimes unfairly) hero or villain with out looking to see the good or the bad in the hero or villain. Basically the rule is that if you are a hero to someone then you are most likely a villain to someone else. Because you cannot become a hero, slay monsters, rescue maidens whatever without hurting the monster or foiling the person’s plans who rightfully stole the maiden in the first place. In life there is no black and white only gray but the problem with us humans is that we seek out the black and white. If that doesn’t work we make things black and white because we are humans and we need to make order out the chaos.
