Given that the Inner Reality is virtually unknowable and incomprehensible to the human brain and the Outer Ego, it is no surprise that we use Myths, as described by Seth, to give human life context ... both in terms of human history and the vast Inner Reality from which it arises.

"Myth is not a distortion of fact, but the womb through which fact must come.  Myth involves an intrinsic understanding of the nature of reality, couched in imaginative terms, carrying a power as strong as nature itself.  Myth-making is a natural psychic characteristic, a psychic element that combines with other such elements to form a mythical representation of inner reality.  That representation is then used as a model upon which your civilizations are organized, and also as a perceptual tool through whose lens you interpret the private events of your life in their historical context.
"When you accept myths you call them facts, of course, for they become so a part of your lives, of societies and your professions, that their basis seems self-apparent.  Myths are vast psychic dramas, more truthful than facts.  They provide an ever-enduring theater of reality."
(The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events, Session 817)
