Those who seek an exact scientific transcription of abstracted events rightly choose to use the translucent symbols of mathematics. But those who would use language to deal with cosmic processes, organic functions, and human relations, as operative interacting wholes, must realize that they can only be represented loosely in the language of myth: in their dynamic complexity and wholeness, they evade other modes of abstraction and representation.
