Daily Rhythms - Night

“Cultures that were night-oriented appreciated the night in a different fashion, of course, and actually utilized their consciousnesses in ways that are almost nearly forgotten.  I believe there are ancient fairy tales and myths still surviving that speak of these underworlds, or worlds of darkness – but they do not mean worlds of death, as is usually interpreted.
In a fashion, the intellect goes hand-in-hand with the imagination under such conditions. It is not that man stressed physical data less, but that he put it together differently – that in the darkness he relied upon his inner and outer senses in a more unified fashion.  The nightly portions of your personalities have become strangers to you – for as you identify with what you think of as your rational intellect, then you identify it further with the daytime hours, with the objective world that becomes visible in the morning, with the clear-cut physical objects that are then before your view.”
