I agree with that, although -- I'm not sure that puts it in the
"primitive" category insofar as what's labeled primitive is really
quite systematic (if you know the, well, cultural language...)
Begotten would seem to me to - in fantasy - represent something more
like the emerging of (self) conciousness caught in the ravages of
violent conflict.... like two halves of the brain fighting in
Agamemnon's head amidst an external war...
