Document Summary

Bolvangar = narnia under the rule of the white witch. Symbolic wasteland of tyranny and bondage, literally want to freeze them in their childhood. Touching of the daemon = rape for adult reader, but not for the child. It is an attack on the self, her full self ; attack on the full = understanding of virginity. Stops puberty and stops adult sexuality from arriving. There"s a very clear difference between the icr and the iar. The other humans can"t handle tony and push him out. Adults going through incision lose their imaginations, creativity, & curiosity. It removes the child, so the adults can live with only adulthood, but it kills the children. Dust is not original sin, but if it is it"s the curiosity that makes us human. This is great for the church bc they get an unquestionable army, but that makes them not fully human. So you have to grow up and experience the world.
