20. the most important lesson of Campbell
which is also what Nietzsche said, is that God is dead.
Not literally, but mythologically.
The flaw of all religions is they have not evolved and adapted to modern times and gives no existential answers any longer.
And Carl Jung said this loss of meaning has resulted in neurosis.

Neurosis is due to the senselessness and aimlessness of the lives of those who suffer from it.

Everything is banal, everything is nothing but; and that is the reason why people are neurotic.

You see, man is in need of a symbolic lifebadly in need.
