    "An example of a common goal would be the rescue of the environment. A mythological dream would be to work together to achieve a common desire for a healthy environment. A single individual can do little to help the environment but if we all heroically work together this dream can be attained. The archetypical image of the hero is waiting in your psyche to contribute towards the improvement of society; all we have to do is utilize it."
