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!

I've been toying (  Cheesy ) with the idea of making some sort of automaton, homunculus or mechanical doings recently, so this is quite timely and inspirational!

Very timely and creepy indeed!

Have a nice Halloweenish yourself too  Wink.

Waaaaa this video is so cool! My favorite automaton was the moon and the flying clown-- especially because it was part of the trend that inspired my favorite comfort film!

I always feel automatons are inherently 'creepy' (I guess one of the reasons why I like them so much). but this collection pushed that nicely to the next level. Chicar, thank you for so much for sharing this, and yes, this is definitely a good one for Halloween. The clockwork baby with sawtooth gears is particularly chilling, I can just imagine it lurching across the floor...

I am so intrigued - if you don't mind me asking, what is your comfort film?

Yours,
Miranda.

A Trip to the Moon! It used to be on Netflix and I'd watch it if I was having difficulties falling asleep.

The 1902 film? I'm amazed that was on Netflix! I remember reading the Verne novel its was inspired by many, many years ago. It's amazing how many details he got right (as compared to the actual Apollo missions), aside from the small fact of using a canon for launch which would have rather jellified its intrepid occupants...

Yours,
Miranda.
