The Mono-Myth as represented by the Myth Cycle starts with things in a state of equilibrium or place of peace and this is represented by the topmost point of our myth cycle diagram(Figure ). The Mythic Hero and adventurer is usually to be found in a state of relative youthfulness, inexperience and perhaps one of naivity. The setting here may be the homestead, perhaps a village, farm or palace. But then something happens which upsets this equilibrium. For instance a princess may be abducted or some precious item may be stolen. Another example would be that perhaps the society or home in which the hero lives falls into disarray for some reason such as a sudden of death of some person, or else a natural disaster. After this perturbation occurs then the goal of the mythological quest is communicated to the Hero to be by a messenger perhaps in the guise of a wise old man or some Oracle. Once this goal is understood the quest is taken up by the hero. This goal may come in the form of a princess or some other beautiful woman who needs to be rescued or found. Or else some precious item such as a holy grail or perhaps a magic sword needs to be recovered that will restore things to the previous equilibrium and the tranquil way things were before the upheaval. This stage is labelled the ‘Call to adventure’.
