I see the menu somewhat more elaborate. Excuse the formatting Ive copied a table.

    The Iliad
    I. 313-17

    I. 436-74

    II. 400-1


    II.402-32
    Location of Sacrifice
    seashore
    altar
    huts

    Around victim
    Sacrificer
    Agamemnon
    Odysseus/
    Khruses for Agamemnon
    Akhaians
    Agamemnon
    katarkhtesthai

    Purification

    Hand washing Barley scattering


    Ritual stance Barley scattering
    Recipient
    (Response)
    Apollo
    (smoke rises)
    Apollo
    (he rejoices)
    various
    Zeus
    (receives sacrifice, denies prayer)
    Victim
    Hecatomb (pl.)
    hecatomb


    ox
    III.245-312
    between armies Agamemnon
    Hand washing
    First hairs
    Zeus, Helios, Rivers, Earth
    (denies prayer)
    lambs, boar

Thats the part about animal sacrifice, that makes Greece so beautiful: only a part is burned to the God, the rest is feasted on. Thats what people don't understand, what the musulmen tried to resolve by substituting a goat for Isaac. But what never had been seen outside of isolated communities and in Africa.

Apparently human meat tastes like chicken. Ive heard pig as well. The unknown bitch here demonstrates the combination and thus the ignobility of the sacrifice. Why we invented spears and handguns, sniper rifles and bombs.

To sacrifice a bull means something much more grave than to sacrifice a human.
Not more important, a bull wont complain as much, but more grave, more substantial, richer.

Now, most of Indonesias and Brazils rainforests are decimated due to soy production which is not to accompany sushi but to feed cattle.
I propose that we re instate animal sacrifice - and that we only eat beef that is sacrificed to a god of the Olympus.

We have time. Oxen move slow, especially to the altar.

Apparently Hannibal Lecter here likes poetic slaughter.

I've always wanted to visit Athens, temple ruins of Delphi, and the ruins temple of Zeus.

For the ruins of Delphi I hear that it is a long ardent journey up the mountains.
The temple mount will be rebuilt in Jerusalem and all the nations of the world will be ruled from there. All races, cultures, leaders, and nations will come to bow before the new messiah yet to come. All will come to know the chosen of God who refer themselves as Jews. For every Jew there will be a thousand goyim that will be their slaves as it was ordained by God. Every man, woman, and child will convert to Zionism.

Yeah I understand the oracle is on such a trail from the complex of Apollon which is at a flat interval of a mountainslope.
I was there early in the morning as it opened, it was just the cats and my awe struck self for a few hours. I had to tell off a guard who was observing me to respect the gods and leave me be. "The gods the gods" he murmured and backed away.

"Hand washing Barley scattering"

This sounds perfect.
I don't like sage and incense, but I do like to scatter some nature to cast away stale humanity.
Barley is so very clean, like Sifs hairs.

I used to think of it as my calling, yeah. Unfortunately that world doesn't address any real issues.
In the end to take a meaningful perspective you need to have a philosophical outlook, need to be able to see things almost objectively - not as they are, as there is no single way that they are, but more like as they "see" themselves.
Hard to explain.

"Things are rooted in themselves" said the Dogen, the great Japanese philosopher of zen. That statement summarizes my approach.
