Archosis

Wed Dec 12, 2007

I’m fascinated by this idea, not only the muelos belief, but considered as a general explanatory principle. The long paleolithic imprinted various atavisms, but only some have archotic force. (Some could be awakened). I suspect that Ted Hughes would have been interested in this idea, had he read La Barre, which he very well might have.

Owl at Chauvet
Cave

Owls eat crows. (And ducks. I was startled at night walking through the Duck Pond neighborhood in Gainesville by swooping owls intent on ducklings more than once.)
