"Like one of those styrofoam owls they put on buildings to scare timid pigeons, the image of the psychopath is a minatory illusion, a threatening mask to keep the conventional from approaching trickster's sacred/not-sacred function. Trickster is among other things the gate keeper who opens the door into the next world; those who mistake him for a psychopath never even know such a door exists."--Lewis Hyde, Trickster Makes This World: Mischief, Myth, and Art, 157.
