Some post show thoughts:
Toward the middle or somewhere in the last half, these two options come up:
1) The gods are just ideals, mental constructs, and don't physically exist.
2) The gods are actual physical beings, a kind of order of beings that exist somewhere in the universe (non-supernatural but yet immortal)
It is unclear exactly, yet either way, we can read that the admonition of Epicurus is to see the gods as incorruptable and blessed.
And I brought up Joseph Campbell and "archetypes" of the gods/goddess, and the muses.
I see now that Joseph Campbell based his work on Carl Jung, so that is really a better source for understanding archetypes.

--Wikipedia article: the muses.
As for further ideas about how to apply the psychology of archetypes within Epicureanism, I hope to start a new thread.
