Primal Unity


The synoptic function of the myth whose circular structure duplicates
that of the cosmos enables it to integrate in one vision the manifold experiences
acquired by men through contact with things.
As in a theater the representation of the invisible takes shape
and puts rhythm into space.
At the center of the enclosure built on a hill and opened to the outer world,
the drama that holds together the lives of men with the lives of gods,
as well as the forces of heaven with those of the earth,
enacts the meeting point of all the perspectives to which it communicates
its primal unity.
