The Clash of the Titans

The creativity myth of the ancient Greeks involved the struggle for control between a race of giants; the Titans, and a new group of gods. The Titans ruled during a legendary 'Golden Age' in Greece. They were overthrown by the Olympians, a race of younger gods. It was a struggle between the forces of the 'old way' and of the 'new way'. Out of this chaos a new order emerged. This myth is an explanation of the universal processes of change for all cultures throughout history. It is what we are currently experiencing. It is the age-old battle between those who control society and thus want to maintain the status-quo and those who see the need to change. Those in power resist, so this change does not happen easily. But it does happen, and it happens relatively quickly once a critical mass is achieved. This process of the evolution of society is what Karl Marx called dialectic materialism.
