The Ouroboros is upon us.
Snake hunter and (amateur?) videographer Sam Billiter tells the tale, on his Facebook page, of the copperhead that once was—moments after decapitating it.
Transcript: "Body still going, head right there. Pretty wild. Oh, it just bit itself. Wow. The snake's head just bit its body. That is crazy. Ooo. Wow. Wow. That's just, that's crazy. How you gonna bite yourself, snake? Snake's head biting his own body, that is just crazy. Sorry, snake. It finally quit moving, though, now that it bit itself. Got your own tail in your mouth, buddy. Wow. Pretty good size."
The copperhead then chopped off Billiter's head and filmed him dying, and the cosmic One tree of life, who proceeds the clash of opposites and stems from our collective unconscious, grew on.
