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.''

This is a most interesting post. I really liked it. Eben though many of the instruments here were developed in the 10th. C, the saxophone development definitely sits squarely in the 19th. C.

With a little more imagination, we'd have Steampunks inventing new instruments.  We hardly ever see any real anachronisms in Steampunk music, and the makers should get into the act.
