'Beastly'

is another word for 'disgusting' or 'horrible'.
The French adjective bête (from Latin bestia: beast)
means 'stupid'.  Language is no more transparent
than television, is a distorting construct
by which we experience the world
‘as through a glass darkly’ - and so
our entrenched, insane,
annihilating attitude to animals
has made 'life' synonymous with 'pain'.

I find it interesting that you quote St Paul I Corinthians Ch 13 V 12 and even as Saul/Paul writes of us humans 'seeing through a glass darkly' the medium he says it in, words, doubles that darkness...
