  • Why do we go insane? We may all be prone to going off the deep end from time to time, but what if we stayed under the water? Before that happens, maybe we should ask ourselves what pushed us over the edge in the first place. The Shining shares a myth that imparts relevant truths, something that we all could have been told around a fire from a wise ancestor if our cultures were still organized that way; a ghost story, a cautionary tale designed to frighten your child self and keep you from a similar path: the myth of the madman.
