A candidate who has taken his vow and has become entered to the mystery.

Hello Izarith. Thank you for your reply.

I can't quite fit the candidate into the role of the ear of corn.

A candidate is subject to review and just beginning his initiation; an ear of corn is one that is ripe and mature. It seems incongruent to me that 'ear of corn' would be a proper metaphor for one who is just beginning and is not fully grown.

I think this mystery needs further exploration.

Is that so?

That's funny because I always considered an ear of corn as an ear of corn, only the mature are reaped from the stock.

What I find incongruent is your conclusion of cannibalism.

But thats just me.

Very interesting thread. It seems corn was in the Americas first Columbus brought it to Europe. Corn as we know it does not occur naturally. Native Americans developed corn at least 7000 years ago from teosinte, a wild grass.

I find the man corn connection fascinating. Imo most ancient cultures practiced human sacrifice/cannibalism.

As far as an ear of corn reaped in silence. This does seem to refer to a solemn ceremony. By the way corn is probably the noisiest crop to pick. You've got to rip the ear off the tough stalk not like picking berries or tomatoes.
