We cannot murder the unwanted, like a hydra it returns multiplied. One must willingly make the necessary sacrifices in order to tame the chaos that entangles our thoughts and actions lest we find our heart torn by the many heads of the beast given to us at birth. We live within a continual ritual of which the Earth is the altar. Humanity is surrounded by either sacrifice or pillage. Living on both sides of the knife that takes and gives. Everything one acquires, desires, speaks, and thinks, by law calls for the surrender of something else.
