A description of the experience
Alain Danielou – While the Gods Play
The progress of the human species rests on the increasing usefulness of each of its elements and varieties; a man progresses by carrying out the role that nature has given him; he degrades himself if he abandons that role. The perfect man, the harmonious man, the useful man, is the man who, like an actor, plays to perfection the role assigned to him.
