Porcupine pun?

Familiarity breeds both acceptance and contempt. The more often someone encounters a perceived danger and walks away unharmed, the more comfortable they become in its presence. And since the people of the hollow already have a level of contempt, the only way to go is acceptance.

I am confused how it can breed contempt. I would figure it would breed out contempt. Pretty much every "ism/ist" is often due to not feeling a relation to the target the ism/ist is about. Like sexist men exposed to women on equal footing wherein they can see them as human, or being exposed and familiar with a race that wasn't common in your childhood. Both malevolent and passive versions of prejudice often stem from lack of exposure, or selectively negative exposure (directly (getting hurt by a person of a specific characteristic (sex, race, creed, nationality etc.))or indirectly (being told in media or by family about the ills of this group or that group with out any personal experience)).

At least that's my initial thoughts on it. I'd like to know what you think.

It's familiarity with the absence of understanding that usually breeds contempt. Like this person you know does something annoying or upsetting to you on a regular basis and that resentment just builds until you explode. It's also the illusion of familiarity, something similar to how the people of the forge mostly believe that all predators are bloodthirsty sadistic monsters without exception. They think they know, but not really. Familiar, but not known.

Ah, so kind of like prejudice. Like knowing of a certain group or type of person and stereotypes attributed. Familiar but not known like you said, assumptions of character or how something is because they know it exists, but don't understand it. So they put it in a box to try to compartmentalize.

I hope for a secret tunnel!

"Isn't THIS the hollow?"

Woah, are we gonna have an epic underground city revelation or something? 😲😲 I'm curious. Or maybe the hollow is simply a little further? Or like we see in movies, under a secret waterfall entrance :D could be anything 🤣
