We either have a spirit that ultimately transcends matter/nature or we don’t. I’m saying that we do. In fact I know it to be true. How so? Due to a whole myriad mystical experiences and synchronistic accounts. Also, the satyrs were indeed a part of the Dionysian entourage, however, for all intents and purposes they were completely ignored by Dionysus and the maenads. Why? Because the love of Dionysus and the women–or, that of the Divine Bridegroom and, much like Jesus–was that of a higher and nobler type. In fact this is what Otto says. While this is the very thing which draws forth the satyrs, whose naked lust–as a means of highlighting it–stands in direct contrast to what Dionysus and the women represent. At the same time it shouldn’t be frowned upon, for it’s something we all need to come to terms with.
