Industrialisation, globalisation, technological advancement, urbanisation, mass
communication systems and other sources of modernity have created a society
with contradictions.' As much as these elements offer the individual
interconnectedness with others, a plethora of opportunities, the ability to
transcend gender, racial, cultural and geographical boundaries they also
contribute to an impersonal society whose members complain of alienation and
a spiritual hunger that capitalistic fetishism cannot seem to satiate. Little
wonder then that interest in eastern religions, the occult, psychic networks and
fundamentalist religions is on the rise. In this quest for reassurance and clarity,
people have also sought to find the mythic and the spiritual in indigenous
Marlo Morgan's New Age fantasy Mutant Message Down Under (1994) set a net
which captured the imagination of those who are on this search for the sacred
in order to find fulfilment and understanding in a world that is increasingly
complex, contradictory and confusing.
