      Dear Frank Polak,

      I guess that any ethnographic report on the communities of natives which still--despite modernisation processes--livein Central and South America (lots of Umbanda temples here in Argentina), Africa and South-East Asia would tell you that the mythic mind is still alive. We even don't need to look for the so-called 'contemporary primitives' of old: any research on the symbolic worldview of pentecostalists or New Religious Movements would in fact detect the heart-beatings of the mythic mind.
      We may call it differently, and we may re-define its nature and dynamic, but it's still the mythic mind.
      Best regards,

      Emanuel Pfoh

      Dear Niels Peter;

      It is OUT, and should be replaced by other categories.
