Remembering the Myths of Generations Past

In this exercise, I imagine myself as different ancestors and ask them the following four questions:

1) What are your primary sources of satistfaction?
2) How do you understand your position within your society--its limitations, privileges, and responsibilites?
3) What is important for you to accomplish before you die?
4) If you look to a nonhuman source to explain human destiny, what is its nature?
