There Are Three Conclusions That Can Be Drawn From Campbell

The first is that all cultures can be traced back to a common species-wide identity somewhere in the last Ice Age.
The second is that, given that we are the same species, we have universal desires and ideas that were expressed in different ways in different places, but which all speak to the same evolutionarily ingrained ideas.
The third, and the one I believe, is that all faiths tap into certain aspects of a deeper universal truth that we can only even begin to comprehend through metaphor and allegory.
