The Sacred Works


There are thus far only 3 works good enough to be considered Sacred by the Bunny Cult and the Furry Faith,

good enough to oft be common interests far before Us Furs ever met.

There are common themes observed (alluding to, in my mind, our recognition that

though people are superior in having several words for each thing, are inferior in every word meaning one of many things.)

The Sacred Works Are: Tales from Within the Rabbitry, (The Adventures of Bilbo Bunny by Jeanette Adams.)

This is the only recent book I find true enough to be called Sacred.

A classic in the making, not a simple story of good vs evil, but about trust in oneself and others.

The importance of youth and elders, confidence and practice, a whole chapter on Misunderstandings,

this is a real representative of the Characterist outlook.

Secret of NIMH, based on Mrs. Brisby and the Rats of NIMH. One brave little mouse, Mrs. Brisby, on her quest to save her children and,

as she finds out, continue the line of sentient mice.

A story of self-reliance during social upheaval, and

one of the few novels to explore the idea of Furry Technology.

The movie is equally classic.

The Travels, (Gulliver's Travels by Swift.) Here we explore the different modes of Human thought, and

consider that the best forms of thought may not be human at all.

Swift considers the linguistic role of morality, in Houyhnhnm Society

Gulliver loses the human vice of misunderstandings and of uttering 'a thing which is not.'

Perhaps the only Furry book to ever make it into the standard curriculum, which shows

how powerful the social observations of Swift are.

Again, one of the few novels to explore the idea of Furry Technology.

Books under consideration: These are sacred works, shown here separately as they already part of or about established religions.


Biblical Cherubim (the plural of "cherub") were not the chubby children later Western tradition has made them.

They were fearsome half-animal half-human creatures, with lion's faces and spread wings.

The Guards of God, their faces so closely match those of medicine wheels of world religions;

they do more to tie the religions together than tear them apart.

The Tao of Pooh, by Benjamin Hoff

This book explores the idea of Pooh Bear as a role model for the Taoist 'Un-carved Stone,'

It reminds us of the power in the diminutive, that we would do well to be careful

which flying dreams we make into expectations.
