gnostic Christ myth:
at the winter soltice the Christ sacrifices himself and enters into the center of the earth to redeem a seed of LIGHT.
it is always a sacrifice to leave the light, which is the realm of living consciousness (where we feel familiar and safe).
- but it's only by exploring the dark unknown the redemption is ever possible.
one day, the monkey heard a song about immortals.
the song expresses that the singer knows an immortal, but would never want to be one himself because life is too hard.
