Fleur is the character who the audience wanted to know more about, yet Erdrich kept her as a mystery with what she was thinking and believed.

She is known for having powers and transforming into Erdrich does not allow us to hear Fleur’s side in Tracks even though it is centered around her and her
Flueckiger says that different people interpret differently whether their puja is actually feeding the deity or whether it is a sign of devotion (Flueckiger 93). Among people who do worship the images, there are some people who see it as the murti is just there as a way to “concentrate” and others who the deity is actually there inside the murti (Flueckiger 78-79). Loving Krishna showed the creation that can come out of this devotion. It showed the artists who made things to be used in the puja, like the drums, the clothes, and the conch shell. In OMG, it is not about creation but about the waste.
The Athame, is considered to be an extension of the users "one own self". This could be a person’s will, spirit, emotion, thought or even the manifestation. The Athame is used to direct energy and can also be useful when we want to cast a magical circle so that the circle or sphere within which we do the ritual is marked to contain energy, create a sacred space or for providing protection. When the ritual or ceremony is completed, the practitioner closes the circle by drawing it anticlockwise using the athame. Personally, I was not aware that Athame is a sort of a knife and mistook it for some chemical compound like in alchemy because of the way it sounds.
As I said, what they possibly though were witchcraft back then could be something treatable by now. Unlike in 1690’s, they didn’t have proof to back their hypothesis that it was bewitching. But now that the reason behind the said incidents were already established and proved wrong by people who studied what might have happened back then. People might still believe witchcraft does exist in present time solely because they have no idea that it might just be an illness that they had no idea about. That the reaction of people around toward something can affect greatly on how things can be
Furthermore OBEs and lucid dreams are very different in the sense that a person undergoing an OBE is convinced that the experience is a real event taking place in a physical world and is definitely not a dream. Whereas in a lucid dream the person knows that it is a dream and not an actual or real life event. But then there is an exception to this difference where sometimes one feels as if one is leaving the body and also knows that it is a
Evocation represents summoning the entity outside of the operation or a person and is outside of the guided spirit. Invocation, however means taking the spirit into one’ self as they enter the operator’s body. I will not demonstrate how to perform an invocation rather evocation of these
As you can tell from what our eyes see, perception is different from reality. In my opinion, I don’t think perception is reality because perception is what we see, and reality is what actually happens. Perception is also usually a trick or an illusion, while reality is not. In magic, perception is what the magician wants you
Every culture in the universal has their own beliefs and behaviors that assumed to be natural, normal, and the best. This is called Ethnocentrism. When Ethnocentrism is too much it prevents us to understand other cultures. Miner’s explained Ethnocentrism in his “Body Ritual Among the Nacirema” article. According to him, Nacirema people’s beliefs are widely based on magic and lots of the practices are actually demeaning to their well-being.
My goal is to obtain a career that will allow me to help people. I 've always taken joy in the nurturing and care of others, therefore I will pursing a career that aligns well with those qualities. Careers such as a registered nurse, or a psychologist of some sort definitely intrigue me, specifically the aspect of these fields that deals with children. Working as a child psychologist, a NI CU nurse, or a pediatric nurse would be a dream come true. Helping to nurture and take care of children is very rewarding in and of itself, although it would be amazing if I could make a career out of it.
Evil is not always immediately Evil. There are several differences and one can only imagine how tough it is to differentiate it from another, characterize and describe it. It is impossible to pigeonhole Evil. Even Immanuel Kant and Arthur Schopenhauer were unable to agree on that. With Good and Evil in fairy tales it is just like with black and white.
