Find the original shape of lost myths and images – cooperative work: climb up all the mountains

  when we look at the many stars in the dark night sky during childhood, we had the experience of feeling the surprise but also the fear of unknown cause. The fear of the universe, whose depth is unknown, makes us think of existence. The idea leads us to the identity of being smaller than dust—we occupy a spot like a myriad of stars in the night sky, and then disappear into the darkness over time. As M. Eliade said in ‘the meaning of religion’, the idea leads individuals to religious thinking and attitude.
