An egregore complements the concepts of mythos and paradigm. The egregore is a thought-form that is usually generated by a society of minds and generates various gods and the cultures that form for a society of minds. Mythos is also developed to help both the society and the individual to understand itself; him or herself. Together they generate the operational paradigm that facilitates social interaction.

A1. Writing & documentation; contracts are a part of our culture;
hence, holy books, rules for association & commerce

A2. Redefining these symbols redefines our relationship to the
opposite gender & how we generate a sense of family &
B. Beast as role model for a man shows strength & Babalon w/sword
as a role model for woman shows strength.
B1. The symbols convey the character of that strength.
B2. The symbols talk to the inner being of each of us & guide us in
4. An Aeon is then a psychic emanation that contains mythos, paradigm & egregore.
A. It gives us that which we can call the truth or the spirit of our Age.

ethics & morality.
C. It creates the space-marks or land marks by which we can
measure, each, ourselves.
