Scarlet Jezebel ~ Jagun Boxing Day  

Once upon a time, I dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering here and there. Chuang-Tzu
I have never dreamt I was a Scarlet Jezebel, I am too heavy.
I’ve never noticed these tiny red ants before, I am too large.

An organism has conscious mental states if and only if there is something that it is to be that organism—something it is like for the organism. Thomas Nagel, ‘What is it Like to Be a Bat?’

‘Sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me’ is one of the least honest phrases. This butterfly is named after the Tyrean princess Jezebel who married Ahab, king of Israel and attempted to murder the prophet Elijah.
