Money Wisdom #326

"In his strange myths, in his cruel rites, man is in search of a lost intimacy from the first.
[..] The animal or plant that man uses (as if they only had value for him and none for themselves) is restored to the truth of the intimate world; he receives a scared communication from it, which restores him in turn to interior freedom."

Georges Bataille The Accursed Share (1988 [1967]) p.57-58
