When I woke up this morning, however, I was alert. My senses were heightened, and even the slightest movements caught my attention. Usually I wake up pretty alert, but this was different. My vision and hearing were acute. I felt more...like I was prey.
Then I remembered what we ate for dinner last night: Steak. It was as if all the body chemicals from the meat had entered my system, and I was feeling things the meat felt before becoming food. Alert to predators, and looking for my herd.
Something I heard about Druidic folklore said that when you eat of an animal, you take on its traits in some way. What a trip!
Is there any research about this? And is there a practical use for it? I smell a great conspiracy theory creeping up! If we could be kept exhausted and eating lots of bovine meat, we would all be susceptible to advertising and act like herd animals.
