cannibalism - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
They say we are born with capacity to become angels or demons, it is hard to think of a more degenerate example of the demonic form than the cannibalism we see here.
Cannibalism was the last act of the hellbound.
The cannibals ate their own souls as they consumed, doomed to forever live as ghosts of flesh.
After the consumption of Earth, of the softer forms of cannibalism, consuming others for their work capacity rather than as honoured society members, I guess the dismembering and consumption of flesh was the next bloody degenerate phase. From here, social devolution accelerated and the apocalypse was a lock-in.
