How are we to account for the deranged enthusiast, that hidden animal clenched in the jaws of idolic night mania?
We say the inner man, who is part lupus, is always and everywhere at war against himself. This internal war manifests itself in external realities. If Lupus-Cain is given a night vision, then he will enact the vision in either thought or act. If Lupus-Cain beholds the beautiful form in the light of day, then he will respond in either thought or act. When Lupus-Cain is chained, he responds in thought only. When Lupus-Cain slips the chain, he responds in act.
While in the throes of rebellion, the inner lupus desires not peace and calm, but calamity and lifeblood. The inner lupus gently licks the marrow from bones splintered in a most violent manner. With indifference, the inner lupus tears its meat from its neighbor. This is the essence of lupine humanity. This is the shadow side of the human being.
The outbreak of Lupus-Cain in the human subject does not come about directly, but as the subject believes the exceptional case has been reached when they may let the wolf howl and then break loose.
