Suddenly it occurred to me that tribal cultures have the same thing in a slightly different form. They have Coyote, or some other Trickster figure, who usually has his own rituals and/or holy days when everything is crazy. The whole point to Coyote is that he breaks the rules, does offensive and foolish things, and shows everyone what happens as a result. Usually it's a big mess. But occasionally it makes something awesome. That's the nature of chaos.
These two things are equally true.
