The god who sacrifices himself gives himself without return. This time all intermediaries have disappeared. The god, who is at the same time the sacrifier, is one with the victim and sometimes even with the sacrificer.All the different
elements that enter into ordinary sacrifice collide here with each other and become mixed together.But such mixing is only possible for mythical, imaginary or ideal beings.–Hubert and Mauss, Sacrifice.
