The processes of animal sacrifice

The Yom Kippur service of the scapegoat includes one (scape)goat (one medium of purification) that is outside the universe of animal sacrifice coupled with a twin goat (also a medium of purification) that is entirely inside the processes of animal sacrifice. 
The latter is sacrificed on the altar, subject to the regulations of the centrist institution; the former is left to live and to carry away the sins of the people out of the camp.
