The Collective Herd

In the less heavy, more rarified air, each cow’s head has become involved in a constant activity of make believe.  The herd as a whole even has several collectively shared daydreams which seem to help hold it together, and as long as their individual head-musings do not threaten the health of the herd, each cow is more or less free to engage in whatever forms of make believe it wishes.

The photographs show a place of much vitality and creativity – a world that flourishes!  But closer examination of a certain sort reveals that a few cows are not all that excited with the situation. 

Here is what bothers them: their heads believe that they live in an atmosphere that is different from the one in which the rest of their bodies live.

The ill are constantly offered treatment;
why do they not accept it?
