Once, many moons ago, when the spirits still whispered long-lost secrets to the chosen few and gods left glittering trails of starlight as they roamed the cosmos in battle, there lived a shaman named Joseph Campbell.
A student of Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell would spend his life seeking out the forgotten tales of yore, searching for the elusive strands of our collective unconscious.
Along the way, he would gain many titles, including Weaver of Stories and Purveyor of Myth. He would tell the world of The Father Quest, The Masked Villain, and the Hero with a Thousand Faces.
Campbell has left us now, but not before passing on many of his secrets to his best pupil, the technical wizard George Lucas.
