Variable Star

I love this theme because it makes my blog look deceptively cool and deep and stuff.

Every society has a trickster of one form or another. The story of a trickster’s exploits is one of the oldest, most persistent narrative forms.

Tricksters often inhabit the grey areas between black and white, between desire and decency. They are duped as often as they dupe other characters, and are frequently as good as they are bad. They can destroy, steal and deceive, but are also identified with bringing creative powers and staples of society, such as light, food, and fire. 

They are expected to make us laugh, but they are also fundamentally human. They are expected to illustrate human truths. 

The tricksters inhabit the heart of the contradiction in human existence. They walk the line between the individual and the group, between freedom and control.
