The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Thanks Chicar!

Ah! The genius and folly of the perennial build! I came across this a number of times when I worked at the BKSTS, old men slowly putting pieces of a thing together that they knew they would never finish. It is a strange compulsion to find yourself at the end of days insuring yourself against your end by taking on a thing you know (if your honest) will out live you. We are a strange creature, so in love with the doing that the thought of completion fills us with unimaginable terror. There should be a word for this. For it is less than rare.
