Either die in the vacuum of space, or...” He paused for melodramatic effect, “ tell me how good you thought my poem was!” Arthur is amused, instead of scared at the possibility of being thrown out into space, he calmly states “Actually I quite liked it.” This part is significant because literally moments before the same people who he is talking to just destroyed an entire earth and his response to these beings decides whether or not he gets to stay alive. He shows this calm expression when his friends leave him on the planet Magrathea alone with the depressed robot Marvin to guard passageway.

She states that “I don’t write to god no more, I write to you.” to Nettie in letter seventy-three shortly after. This is a significant turn in Celie’s spiritual journey as she abandons God – which she deemed unhelping and unresponsive, in favor of her sister who has always been there for her as a source of comfort to her from the beginning. Celie began to turn away from religion and begins to search the spaces of spirituality in her life, which are namely Shug and Nettie. When Shug describes her journey from religious to spiritual and how she discovered her spiritual state became the ultimate turning point in Celie’s development away from stiffly structured religion.
