Keeping that balance of the necessary consumption of myth and significance without it sending you to the caves of dogma is one task. The other task is not letting “it’s all bull shit and you die” taking civilization over the edge.
The times where civilization was able to strike that balance led to a flourishing of ideas and culture. Times where civilization retreated to the caves of dogma or to the edge of nihilism brought forth stagnation or destruction.
Dogma is not exclusive to religion it can be political as well, for example fascism and communism.
Humans need some sort of transcendence to justify their existence but if it rocks towards dogmatic extremism it can be a vicious mistress. But without any sort of transcendence and ideals human beings often lack hope and inspiration.
The survival of Human civilization depends on this balancing act.
