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.''
Extract of the Dreamflesh article ''Path of The Sacred Clown''

Disclaimer : just a professional comment I haven't listened to the Apple podcast above, so I  don't know if the podcast mentioned what wrote below.

Elon Musk's Hyperloop projects around the world are not very far from the concept above. It's just that the rarefied atmosphere in the tube (vacuum) serves a slightly different purpose (low drag)

I agree deeply on the stupidity factor involving that creature depicted on the même. I still don't want to see his face here.
