“It was always hard for me to look on others” (3). All he feels he can do is run away from his problems. Crispin views himself as a week unimportant person which makes it hard for him to chance. Crispin prays to God for solutions, but is not able to able to find what he was looking for. “O Great and Giving Jesus, I, who have no name, who am nothing, who does not know what to do, who is alone in Thy world, I implore Thy blessed help, or I’m undone” (21).
Question 1 Materialism is define as “nothing exist except matter and its movements and modifications”. The first problematic point is there is no spiritual reality. This statement explains why our society is so lost and confused. If there is no spiritual realty, then there is no God. Many believe that science is the solution for all the problems we have, therefore God does not exist.
Matt (1997) also argues that “emptying out” is having one's mind on no object other than God, rather than an absolute emptiness of content. These seem really to be cases of extrovertive mysticism designed to get the practitioner not to think consciously about oneself, often for the purpose of achieving humility, compassion, and selflessness. Bagger (1999) makes an interesting and similar point, “if the Pure Consciousness Event contains absolutely no conscious content, I fail to see how the mystic could possibly remember anything about the experience….To remember an experience an individual must experience it as something”. This in contradiction to nothingness pointed by Forman (1986). A person, or other entity, is conscious if they experience something; conversely, if a person or entity experiences nothing they are not conscious.
They have their suspicions but are afraid to say it out loud, as it would not correspond to their ideologies. The British men try to solve the problem on their own way, which is torturing the Silver Man; they do not even consider asking the temple people for help or doing some research on the myth surrounding Fleete, disregarding other possible solutions. They live in a foreign culture and thus, “lack the cultural framework within which they are situated” (Battles 341) –
Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body. Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body” (1 Corinthians 6:13, 18, KJV). Fornication is one of the reasons many people do not receive their blessings from the Lord. Many people do not know this reality, and those who are aware of it refuse to listen to the counsel of the word of God, which instructs them to shy away from all forms of unrighteousness.
Silence is referred to submission and Simon shows how these people are foolish for following this God not even knowing what their intentions are. This explains the “People talking without listening/People hearing without listening.” This can also go more further into the idea of being isolated. People creating things/thoughts but are not sharing it with others, probably because they are scared to share it and feel alone by society and their friends. It's almost like enjoying a song because it's popular and everybody is singing it but don't understand the meaning of the song. Just want to be apart of
Sita was blinded by the context of his book in such a way that he completely failed to consider the philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi and simply branded him as a failure since. In addition, the context influenced his work in such a way that he used it to insult the faith of other people besides indicating that the constitution of India allowed people to convert into any religion if they wished to. He completely ignored other factors that influence behaviors such that he concluded Pope John Paul II invites for a televised question-answer program was a sign of loss of power.

ISIS believes that ancient sculptures who used to be worshipped by the people, should no longer stand on Earth, as they foment the worship of an idol which is not Allah, their one and only superior. In my opinion, ISIS also believe it is wrong to represent the living, in artwork, as for them it was prohibited because it represented lack of respect towards Allah, as Allah’s greatness could not be depicted in any human
Saussure believed that there is no relation between the signifier and the signified. “The signs are arbitrary and each unit of meaning lacks meaning if it stands by itself. These units gain meaning when they are related together, the words, the grammar, and other components.” ( Afrev, 2012, pp.7) All readers know that the text and the words reflect the writer’s feelings and thoughts and tell truths to them. However, structuralisms tried to persuade readers that the text tells no truth. Structuralism thinks as Roland Barthes says, ‘the writer is dead’ and the reader is sent away from the text because the readers’
