Fellow Tetrapod interulde: Halloween

Picture
Halloween is not a universal instinct. It is a learned behavior practiced by a specific human community at a particular time in their history. Therefor, it is not worthy of discussion.
 
"Mr. Grumbles, make a fire," said the raven perched on a troll's shoulder. His name was General Graa.1
 
"I will skewer snacks for roasting," said the giant spider, whom we shall call Hostess.

The Children of the Sky by Vernor Vinge
"Political polarization, social engineering, and shenanigans on the Tines world. This book is very much a sequel to A Fire Upon the Deep. There's adventure and a continuation of the ideas explored in the first book, with only a hint of galactic scale." Read more of this review »
Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl
"This is a good book to not read just before you go to bed. At least the first part. . . .

The mind-numbing life and horrors of a concentration camp, and the effort to find meaning in life, and how much that meant.

And a discussion of finding meaning in" Read more of this review »

“Don't worry, Njrea," said Vrem, but everyone went just a little bit still when Trals's raptor got close. Andrea stared down at the wide, yellow eyes, the twitching taloned fingers. The little beast opened its mouth and chuckled at her, like a crow with a dirty joke on its mind.”
Daniel Bensen, Groom of the Tyrannosaur Queen

“America was exhausted. The libertarians had made freedom unbearable, the evangelicals had made faith unbearable, the social justice movement had made equality unbearable, the lawyers had made justice unbearable, loud people in Uncle Sam hats had made patriotism unbearable, and the entirety of capitalism over the last two centuries had made industry unbearable. Americans were sick of all the virtues and ready for a straightforward, no-nonsense villain.”
Scott Alexander, Unsong

“Seen from Earth, a comet is a prodigy, coming out of the void for no reason, returning to the void for no reason. They call it unpredictable because they cannot predict it. From the comet’s own point of view, nothing could be simpler. It starts in the outer darkness, aims directly at the sun, and never stops till it gets there. Everything else spins in its same orbit forever. The comet heads for the source. They call it crooked because it is too straight. They call it unpredictable because it is too fixed. They call it chaotic because it is too linear.”
Scott Alexander, Unsong
