"In psychological terms, he who has attained the realm of the full moon has gained knowledge of the unconscious as past, source, origin; he has power in this present world; and has insight into the realm of the future. He has become in a certain sense timeless, he transcends the limitations of time. He has gained immortality.
The immortality promised by the moon, however, is not a continuation in a state of perfection, but an ever-renewed life like the moon's own, in which diminishing and dying are as essential as becoming."
– M. Esther Harding, Women's Mysteries
