Coffee has a deep-rooted allure. It's got of ground, dampness and marvel. It has the scent of remote lands and an odd story behind, swiftly to get you in. You're yearning for coffee. Smoke and a soft power kindly look after that draft refresh, maybe it's pluckiness of up and running guys.
This peewee book has bits and pieces to leaf through. No big deal to declaim. Nothing to be wise to.

Cognitive and emotional process: it's so monstrous

😮Every culture builds composite creatures in their tradition and beliefs.
Human brain builds up predictive models of the world to extract useful signals from ambient informational noise.
Abnormal ideas or images hold on and outspread because they surprise us, making them harder to neglect or look past.
Developing monsters is a way of conveying our cultural and political worries into concrete forms.
Monsters are adherent memes that drag groups together into moral social bodies. Concepts of gods, monsters or other memes are filled with fright, lasciviousness, rage and complex mixtures of these.
Horror derives from any jamming creature and not from the content of the cognition. The cognitive jumble creates the emotional stimulation, not the monster itself.
The sphinx in Giza, half-human and half-lion, is at least 4,500 years old. In the Epic of Gilgamesh (2100 B.C.) Gilgamesh and Enkidu combat a hybrid monster named Humbaba, having a lion’s head and hands, but a scaly body. Vishnu, in India, is a lion-man monster. Ganesha, son of Shiva, is humanoid with an elephant head. So many Greek hybrid creatures—centaurs, satyrs, mermaids, Pegasus, Hydra, griffins, chimeras—are constantly relaunched on movies. Literature over the last 2000 yrs, from Beowulf to Rowling, has described monstrous mash-ups and shape-shifters. Recently there are sort of hybridizing of humans and computers.
