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.''

If only they shone with a true moonlight light and not a 'you can see every detail of the pitcher scratching his crotch' brilliance...

Austin, Texas, is the only city in the world known to still have moonlight towers. They are 165 feet (50 m) tall with foundations 15 feet (4.6 m) wide. The towers were manufactured in Indiana by Fort Wayne Electric Company and assembled on site.[1] In 1894, the City of Austin purchased 31 used towers from Detroit. A single tower cast light from six carbon arc lamps, illuminating a 1,500 feet (460 m) radius circle brightly enough to read a watch.[2

I knew I had seen one before. To be honest I only have seen one of them. They're simply not that visible amongst all the other lights at night.

I've seen one near the college area downtown, in a late 19th C area known as Hyde Park. As the name implies, it's and area around a city park with a very grungy vibe to it. Lots of hipster homes built in the 1940s, and some few Victorian Era homes in a densely wooded urban area.

The moon tower is very close to the park itself probably illuminating the golf course. It should be visible from anywhere in the Hyde Park neighborhood. But you'd never notice it at night with all the trees and lights from restaurants and bars in the area unless someone pointed at it. It'd be interesting to go to the university and ask students at random if they've ever seen a moon tower, or even know we have some in Austin.
