CANNIBALISM-eating humans. anglosax-manaeta english man eater. after columbus's 'discovery' of caribs and west indies.
man being carnivorous by nature, why aren't we cannibals?
concept of the soul. only famine, hatred, morbid 'kindness' and 'magic'(sublimation).
the strong tendency of Cannibalis, once started, developes and confirmed appetite which will be indulged for its own sake(HA HA!-aquired taste!) i did say i wrote a paper in HS on this.
1. shipwrecks and seiges-and for example the miserable nativesof tiera del fuego, who when starving, would kill the oldest woman of the party for food, asked why not dogs? 'dogs catch otters'.
2. fury or bravado-NA indians. drinking blood in battle
3. morbid affection(sublimation) asia- eat deceased loved one. (COMMUNION!-eat, this is my body-bread drink-this is my blood-wine, my lutheran english teacher did not like this. HEY! the catholics say it becomes jesus' body and blood!)
4. religion. aztec, figi, barbarians. (but not communion!!!)
5. magic- s asia, australia.
6 habit-um, old thinking here. blah blah.

my flight was gonna be a sunset flight, BUT, my midwest plane hit a bird when it landed, so had to be checked out, can't remember if we got a new plane, but didn't take of til it was dark. the mark twain short stories book sucked. but the view once over lake michigan was awesome. chicago and milwaukee on the edge of that black mass. and so. i did not have any jetlag. and plan on never getting it, now that i know to go with you body clock. plus, i tend to get wound up for travel.
