I'm almost done with The Hero with a Thousand Faces, and I must say, it has changed my life. I also finished The Writer's Journey by Chris Vogel. I have so many questions about this material, and I feel my knowledge is somewhat incomplete. The questions I am asking may be sophomoric and answered easily. It's just when I have consumed this much material at once, I get a little confused and can't see things right in front of my face. He states that the heroes, once near the end of their quest and having finally defeated the Antagonistic forces, now fully understand the "Cosmogonic Cycle", and that they are now a "Master of Two Worlds", able to cross between them effortlessly and without disturbance. My question: The Two Worlds he mentions, is the first being the Conscious/Waking World that our hero was physically born into, and the second, being the Unconscious/Dream World that he entered at the First Threshold? Campbell stated that the two worlds are in fact the same, one physical, the second, a symbolic and allegorical version of the first? If the hero chooses to return, with his Boon, this Boon is, in essence, knowledge of the Cycle, which is a universal understanding of the order of things. Am I on the right track? I may have to read the whole book again one day.
