Sacred space movie ** Historical religion = sacred time ( a time when God intervene in human life) Native American = sacred space God intervenes by being in a place on earth where you can go and see him. In the light of reverence -Lakota -Hoki -Wintu Two classic types of rituals: those rites that are connected to the human life cycle; those rites associated with fixed points in the yearly calendar. Rituals can serve as condensed symbols that serve to achieve a specific end. Van Gennep believes that Life-Cycle rituals follow the common pattern of separation, transition, and reincorporation. Ritual is symbolic in the most profound sense, for it "brings together" the mind, the body, and the emotions, and at the same time, binds us to a community of shared values. Shamanism in its classic form is found in the northern regions of Siberia but can be found throughout the world, particularly in Native American religious life. In Shamanism, sickness can be seen as a misfortune and can be healed by feeing the soul from a malevolent spirit or by slaying the evil spirit. Seasonal rituals are directed to securing the well-being of both the community and the individual. The Babylonian creation myth is called the Enuma elish. Some scholars believe that sacrifice represents a simple barter with the gods. Robertson Smith believes that the core of sacrifice is found in the idea of securing a social bond. Livingston writes that atonement is the idea that life can be restored through self-sacrifice. The holiest day of the Jewish year is Yom Kippur. According to the Anglican Book of Common Prayer, a sacrament is "an outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual grace.” Unlike symbols, Evelyn Underhill writes, sacraments do not simply signify or represent the sacred: they also work. One of the effects of starvation for Pi and Richard Parker was blindness. Pi succombed to cannibalism on the lifeboat. Green is the color of Islam The island was inhabited by thousands of meerkats. Native Americans, in contrast to historical religions which see God acting in events, see God acting through the earth.
