There is a subtle humming distraction as MGMT sings Of Moons, Birds & Monsters.
I will sing the hymn to Mithras and chant the song of Osiris before I pray to Jesus — Mythology, such a fascinating structure holding man’s imagination and history.

“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile but that it is indifferent; but if we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death — however mutable man may be able to make them — our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” [Stanley Kubrick]
