What does Daucus Karota mean?
It was a character from a book called The Drug Experience, which was a compilation of different authors and their personal experiences with drugs. This was a hallucination of the author that he had while on opium. The character had mandrake roots instead of feet. Each time he took a step he had to plant the roots and uproot them again. I was struck by that; I liked the idea of the whole growth and pattern of taking each step, kind of planting yourself in something, getting it done, taking it where you want to take it and moving on.
