In “The Earth on Turtle’s Back,” the animals are responsible for creating the Earth. After comparing and contrasting, “The Earth on Turtle’s Back,” to Genesis 1, one can see that both of these creation stories have two distinctive tales about how the Earth was
This critical response will be comparing, and contrasting both stories by making points such as, how the stories fit into the science fiction genre, the characterization between Eckles and Jeremy, the theme/message of the stories, dialogue, and writing style. The science fiction genre fits into both of the stories because of the technology, settings, and events that take place in the stories. The Sound of Thunder fits into the genre because of the time travel machine, the dinosaurs, the date it takes place, and the chaos theory and paradox concepts. The Nethergrave fits in the genre because of the virtual world controlled and presented by Magus, who seems to know everything. The virtual world also seems to have great “graphics” if not realistic, and how main character physically entered the Nethergrave from his bedroom.
In comparison, it’s always observed on how different scholars find the similarity of especially marital settings, characters, and as well as the wanderings of the mythological world. Different events within the life of these characters cover broadly a huge range of epic encounters that are heroic. The character, emotional and psychological development of Gilgamesh can be borrowed especially from the ancient heroic perspectives of mortality and death while comparing with Achilles. Mesopotamian civilization has had several phases in which hero Gilgamesh has been in existence, however having similar attributes. One of the earliest stories of Gilgamesh is developed from Sumerian texts, one of the most influential and well-known poems (Michelakis & Pantelis 2007).
The parallels between Hesiod's Theogony and the Popol Vuh run much deeper than the obvious similarities of the shared incidents of dismemberment; the parties responsible for the dismemberment and what the dismemberment itself represents, the latter being the topic of this essay. There are many resemblances that can be drawn between these two epics, and indeed between a great number of the global creationary epics. It is the greater context of the creationary epic that gives a clear meaning to of each of the passages, and the episodes of dismemberment contained within. Ouranos and Seven Macaw, although seemingly somewhat dissimilar in character and cosmic ancestry share a common theme of being an unwanted roadblock to the willed creationary process, by way of self-magnification. Self-magnification itself seems to be an attempt to convey urgency, of a building pressure within the
In various cultures, traditional stories of a universal beginning relate to the beliefs and rituals that are prevalent within that society. Although these creation stories differ among cultures, all display similar characteristics which constitute archetypal settings of creation myths, such as a great tree, the landmass from a watery chaos, and the fall of man. In the Iroquois’ creation myth, “The World on the Turtle’s Back”, the display of archetypal settings parallels the creation depicted in the book of Genesis, but underlying each similarity are differing interpretations which allow for the stories to relate to its specific culture. In both “The World on the Turtle’s Back” and the Genesis creation story, a prominent characteristic is the great tree connecting heaven and earth. As stated by the Iroquois, “In the middle of the Sky-World there grew a Great Tree .
The story of Morte D’Arthur and the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail Share a similar idea but tell a slightly different story. The characters may be similar, but were each trying to complete a different task at the time. The Stories each have different levels of seriousness and determination. Each of the stories do contain some similarities like how even though it is not mentioned in the short story of Morte D’Arthur the holy grail is still a relevant part of the entire story. Both of the stories are unique and tell a story in King Arthurs life in a very different way that makes each of them unique.
Odinism: "is a pre-Christian, pagan, polytheistic religion involving the worship of Norse and Germanic gods, especially Odinism is a pre-Christian, pagan, polytheistic religion involving the worship of Norse and Germanic gods, especially Odin, the chief god. Odinism was the religion of the Vikings, who primarily lived in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Iceland, and whose influence was felt in other parts of Europe, including Scotland, Ireland and England. The Vikings are also said to have sailed to North America. The oral traditions of the Odinists are recorded in a set of books called the Eddas. Followers of this religion regard nature as the true manifestation of the divine and believe that man is inherently good.
Hesiod’s account of creation, as outlined in the Theogony offers one of the most detailed and accepted theories of creation in the Greek culture. On the other hand, the Biblical account of creation, regarded as a Hebrew culture creation account, is to date one of the most widely acknowledged and accepted versions across various cultures seeking explanations for the origin of life and the earth. However, even though these creation accounts originate from two different cultures, they share some thought-provoking parallels in terms of their content and intentions, as well as some contrasts that make each of the creation accounts unique. Both Hesiod’s and the biblical creation accounts are similar in that they argue that prior to the beginning of creation events, the earth was merely a void that had no shape or form and this void was filled with darkness. The Bible describes it; ‘….the earth was without form and void… and darkness was upon the face of the deep’ (NKJVGenesis 1:2) and a similar claim is made in Hesiod’s Theogony which alleges that in the beginning there was only confusion of Chaos and unbroken darkness.
In the whole history, the humanity has so many explanations for dreaming process, but most of them are religious and spiritual. However, the scientists said that "dream production mechanisms draw bits and pieces of elements within the vast mnemonic repertoire that contains all the information,
The final step of amplification is called archetypal amplification, in which the dreamer looks at the stories and symbols from myth and history that relate to a dream symbol. In Jung’s early research he found that very similar images and stories can be found in myths, fairytales, and folklore from all over the world This led him to develop the concept of the archetypes as deep psychological patterns that underly the way in which people structure stories and find meaning. When you read myths and fairytales you might notice that folklore sometimes includes the same kind of surreal images and unexpected events that occur in dreams. Jung thought that dreams spring from the same psychological archetypes that give mythology it's basic shape. If
