'One is harassed, both day and night, by the divine being that is the image of the living self within the locked labyrinth of one's own disorientated psyche. The ways to the gates have all been lost: there is no exit. One can only cling, like Satan, furiously, to oneself and be in hell, or else break, and be annihilate at last, in God.' JOSEPH CAMPBELL
Persephone wanders through a sterile space full of discarnate symbols, ripening to the realisation that the only way to unite with her infinite self, is to ignite.
