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.''

There was a very interesting documentary (probably an Equinox) about 30 years ago about phage therapy and its possible importance in the coming era of antibiotic uselessness. It very much appeared that because the phages need to be cultured from the patient rather than mass-produced in laboratories they couldn't be patented and so pharmaceutical companies couldn't see a way to profit from them. So that's why we haven't heard of them.  Cry

I speak in syllabubbles. They rise to the surface by the force of levity and pop out of my mouth unneeded and unheeded.

With all the resistance to modern medicine, it is an interesting concept
