Unhallowed Arts On View in Vancouver

Mary Shelley saw in a terrible nightmare "...a pale student of the unhallowed arts: " a scientist, that is, doing unholy things to the dead.

Here in Vancouver, money is made and ideology advanced by a heralded display of these unhallowed arts: a profane and exhibitionist sacrilege of flayed dead innocents -- which would have disgusted the Middle Ages -- under the commercialist title "BodyWorld 3."

Shelley's nightmare has come true.

That show looks terrible. How dare they disgrace the human body, put it up for display, twist it for entertainment. Speaking of putting nature on the rack, absolutely vile.
