Eat the Ego, Cannibalize the self. 

The Saccharose Husk is a communion ritual, reconciliation via consumption of the self in the form of a sugar cast double of the body.

Certain animals have been observed digesting their own nervous tissue when they transition to a new phase of life. 

The Ouroboros, or the snake that eats its own tail, has a meaning of infinity or wholeness and cycles of renewal. By devouring oneself you are able to turn the nature of living into a circulatory process.

Birth thyself, eat thyself, fertilize and give birth to thyself once more.
