frieze of animals and human figures, the word also abides "horus," which
stems from the Egyptian word Hor, translated as 'face.' This falcon-headed
god, "who flew up at the beginning of time," has two eyes
on its brow: the sun and the moon. With the new moon, Horus is worshipped
as Mekhenti-en-irty, 'He who has no eyes on his brow." When
he recovers his sight, he becomes Khenty-irty, "He who has eyes." Horus
is a warrior-god who could be especially dangerous when his vision
was gone, as he was then adept at collateral damage.
this is due: G.
Bataille, "The Big Toe." In, Visions of Excess: Selected
Writings, 1927-1939. Minneapolis, 1989. The paragraph reads, "The
big toe is the most human part of the human body, in the sense that
no other element of this body is as differentiated from the corresponding
element of the anthropoid ape (chimpanzee gorilla, orangutan, or gibbon).
This is due to the fact that the ape is tree-dwelling, whereas man
moves on the earth without clinging to branches, having himself become
a tree, in other words raising himself straight up like a tree, and
all the more beautiful for the correctness of his erection."

is a riddle: "During the transitional period, everything
was in flux. Somehow, every narrative picks up the story in the
midst of things. There is no point of beginning for the Lushshootseed.
Instead, the narrative is continuous and proceeds in terms of connections.
Things were already in existence but leading separate lives until
a link was made and other events followed in due course." J.
Miller and V. Hilbert, "Lushootseed Animal People: Mediation
and Transformation from Myth to History." In, A.J. Arnold,

away : "Heard an ambulance go by recently? Remember
how the siren's pitch changed as the vehicle raced towards, then
away from you? First the pitch became higher, then lower. Originally
discovered by the Austrian mathematician and physicist, Christian
Doppler (1803-53), this change in pitch results from a shift in
the frequency of the sound waves...As the ambulance approaches,
the sound waves from its siren are compressed towards the observer.
The intervals between waves diminish, which translates into an
increase in frequency or pitch. As the ambulance recedes, the sound
waves are stretched relative to the observer, causing the siren's
pitch to decrease. By the change in pitch of the siren, you can
determine if the ambulance is coming nearer or speeding away. If
you could measure the rate of change of pitch, you could also estimate
the ambulance's speed." "The Doppler Effect:
A Familiar Example." http://archive.ncsa.uiuc.edu/Cyberia/Bima/doppler.html
