The next list of videos includes movies as The Matrix, Star Trek, Lord of The Rings and TV series as the X-Files. (Be aware, the one from Lord of The Rings really got me when I first found it a few months ago).
Just in case you didn’t notice, every adventure tale with a hero follows 12 stages known as the hero’s journey.
A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.
Or… just in case… here is the explanation with pop culture references.
Thanks to CGP Grey for this “Lord of the Rings mythology explained”.
