Continued from Episode 21: The Enemy of My Enemy Star Trek Hunter Episode 22: Sacrifice Episode 22 – Sacrifice “There exists in the psyche of every social animal an urge to give its life to a magnificent predator in an act of all-consuming passion – a deep desire to be devoured and obliterated by a powerful carnivore in a blinding orgasm of pain. In intelligent species, this desperate desire is often derided in its recreational guise of masochistic carnality as sexual deviancy while simultaneously celebrated in its religious incarnation of self-sacrifice as a virtuous submission to the will of a higher being. But both of these phenomena are at root unconscious expressions of the social animal’s instinct to suborn its own need for individual survival in order to ensure the survival of its herd.” Dr. Mlady – Ethical Sentient Predation – A Predator’s Guide to the Ethical Hunting, Husbandry and Harvesting of Intelligent Prey Animals.
