Polishing away the rough edges

People need legends and myths. When the world becomes too rational it loses its sensuality, which makes it more difficult for people to gain a purchase on the world and so they lose their grip on a reality that includes them as participants in the world's affairs. 
When we efface the Old One we risk polishing away all the rough edges that give us traction in getting a grip on our place in the world.
