Spirit in the Rock


Spirit in the Rock, originally uploaded by Patrick Cowsill.
This rock outside of Chiuliao Hsih (九寮溪), Taiwan was giving off strange energy. A fortune teller was called in and she determined 21 centimeter spirit was living inside. The spirit has blond hair.

Contrary to the scientific theory; it is a common believe that rocks are the grown-up pebbles in Taiwan and Japan. Do you remember the Monkey King 孫悟空was born from a rock in the story book?

It's interesting all the strange places mythic characters are born from, places other than a vagina. See Athena etc. I wonder what Freud says about this.

Ah, it reminded me of something since you mentioned about the place of our important organ. In the aboriginal myth of Ami tribe 阿美族in Karenkou, God had a hard time deciding where to place the organ when creating the human being; tried to place on the arm first then on foot, all failed and finally settle with the present place.

Chosan, that is very funny. BTW, where is Karenkou / does it have a Chinese name?
