In mythology, gods are usually all-powerful, all-knowing, immortal beings personifying the human dream of existence free from mortal limitations. Joseph Campbell asserts that the gods of myth are essentially masks, i.e., metaphors for the spiritual unknown that is the ultimate object of the hero's quest. Psychologically, the gods represent the unconscious potencies within the hero. There are many different kinds of gods in mythology: anthropomorphic gods, chthonic gods, fertility gods, animal totems, demigods. All tend to be what Mircea Eliade calls "fecundators," representing the creative forces in the universe. Certain mythological traditions provide elaborate pantheons (Greek: pan = all; theo = god) or family hierarchies of gods, often personifications of nature. For example, Sky-Father and Earth-Mother are archetypal characters in cosmogonic myths.
