Time and myth belong together. Myth creates time, gives it "content and form." This is still implicit in the calendar: "An III de la Republique," "in the tenth year of Fascism," "AD 1949." Time was determined by an event that emerged from the unconscious at the moment when it was given form... For myth and so-called reality are indissolubly interwoven. When they read the earliest history of certain tribes or people, scholars wonder: is it myth or history? mythical usage or real usage?... But the whole question is false. Myth is life and life is myth.
Now, I think it is tendentious to say that time in these (or any) epochs of change 'emerges from the unconscious at the moment they are given form'. There is some truth in it, but it is not an absolute truth. Pol Pot, for example, definitely declared Year Zero, but to say that the Christian era began in year 1 AD, with everyone immediately understanding that shift from unconscious to conscious thought, is clearly anachronistic. It didn't happen like that. The principle is reasonable, and therefore they underlying premise that myth and time are closely interlinked is also acceptable, but to posit this as a universal truth is unsound reasoning.
