When does the ritual of mythic symbolic type start and when does it end?

Mythic symbolic type is a unique cultural structure that permits no exit to the one who has lost his “self ” to it. The semi-commune Little Home housed a community of mythic symbolic types which engendered a ritual of their own in which the men trapped within the type moved between its two edges, purity and impurity. But since there is no exit from the type, the question is how and when the ritual begins and ends? What kind of ritual is the mythic symbolic type’s? As an answer, the following article presents an ethnography of the ritual in the semi-commune Little Home where mythic symbolic type was found, and a conceptual map of this world with the help of Bateson’s play paradox and a self-correcting model. © 2018 Walter de Gruyter GmbH, Berlin/Boston.
