Why Speak With Symbols?

In our Conversations of a Higher Order, threaded discussion forums, over 25,500 messages have been posted‚—a thousand more since our last featured thread in July! In this featured conversation, Nandu begins:We speak of the symbolism and metaphor of myth. It is part and parcel of any art form, too. Why? What is the universal attraction of symbols? Why does everything (dreams, myth, legends, literature, art) have to use symbols to communicate?
