Claude Levi-Strauss’s theory of myth as bricolage highlights the collage-like way a myth is assembled. Unarius borrowed some themes from popular culture (e.g., Star Trek), Theosophy, and metaphysical legends (e.g., Atlantis and Lemuria), while others were entirely of their own invention. Race and gender are discussed as themes of myth, as well as the past lives and pseudo-kinship. The cosmology and the content of several myths are detailed, such as the Spiritual Hierarchy, the Interplanetary Confederation, the Orion Empire, Isis and Osiris, and Jesus and Mary of Bethany.

Keywords:   Levi-Strauss, myth, bricolage, race, gender, Atlantis, Lemuria, cosmology, past lives, pseudo-kinship
