It is a belief in self-determination, a belief one's will is the edict of God, which sets the hero apart. The individuality of the hero puts him at odds with the collective. His thoughts are perverse; his actions are misdeeds. In his heart is written a sacred text which is anathema for it's author is no other than himself.

The hero, of course, is not set against the collective in every way; but, it is his sense of rebellion which alienates him from the group. In his solitude and with a deep sense of being misunderstood, his loneliness compels him to turn inward. Being despised and rejected, his persona is crucified and put to death. It is with the death of his own flesh does he then descend into the hell of his own soul, the dark places devoid of light, is he brought before the imps of his own nature. Alone, in his darkness is the veil of the temple torn in two and God is brought to light.

Then, emboldened, his spirit rises; the old man is put to death, and the new man, a man who is both divine and human, spirit and body, a marriage of that which is carnal to that which is spirit is born, anew. As the scriptures say, "(O)ld things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."

"....a marriage of that which is carnal to that which is spirit is born, anew."

Gal 5:17 - For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other:

Rom 8:7 - Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

Rom 7:18 - For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing:

Rom 8:8 - So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

1Co 15:50 - Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

Don't be fooled by the old old doctrine that God (spirit) will somehow be joined (reconciled) to sinful man (carnal)

It is a false man-made doctrine designed to steer men away from the truth. The Bible totally rejects this doctrine.

If you're looking to make sense out of the OP, you never will. Either you identify with it or you don't.
