land-of-the-dead

I’m thinking about Ovarianism, and potentially having it that one of the big dividing differences between branches is the view if the afterlife.

The faith originally started as reincarnation based, about all souls transitioning from one body to the next in a birth/rebirth cycle. Early on due to intermingling with neighbouring religions they picked up concepts of a “land of the dead”and eventually bled into the creation of an actual “afterlife”

The (numerous) text itself is contradictory on the nature of the afterlife, but the general consensus usually view paradise as either a “rebirth” in bodily form or the eventual breaking of  a “cycle”. Despite most branches sharing most of the same texts and practices, the views on the afterlife can vary radically.

Merics for example nearly all follow a branch of Ovarianism in which souls do reincarnate, but in the endtime all souls are judged and will either go to paradise or Midhad (hell/purgatory) based on the deeds throughot their cycle. Many Merics sincerely believe their children are reincarnated forms of recently deceased relatives and friends, making sin especially grave due to the possibility of damning the soul of those who lived before you. 

The branch of Ovarianism adopted by most Managians (and many Ocos and Banxer converts) is highly organized, believing that all sapient souls instead of reincarnating on Earth will Go to Paradise or Midhad through a literal rebirth (err, hatching). Paradise is full of Earthly pleasures and delights. While generally Ocos are (currently) more politically aligned and close with the Daws who hold much power, Managians currently hold more power in the realms of faith. 

Comparatively few Daws follow this organized form of Ovarianism, usually following branches that reject the idea of a paradise of “earthly pleasure” and believe the end goal of their faith it to break free of such needs and wants like food and sex.

There is some newer highly strict branches dedicated to (in their view) follow a version “uncorrupted” by change. One such (small) branch views souls as being “recycled” in death, but like the Meric branch believe in an end time where the Earth will end souls will be judged. Unlike the Meric branch however they believe that all souls that don’t go to paradise will be destroyed (basically everyone who isn’t them). They also believe Ocos are the only ones eligible to going to paradise and other species are more or less “talking animals”…

What the fuck United Airlines????

I just watched the video of them assaulting that innocent passenger who was forcibly removed from his seat that he already paid for just so one of their fucking employees could fly on that flight because their moronic asses overbooked. They drag away the unconscious, bloodied elderly man like a sack of garbage after forcing him out of his seat that he shouldn’t be forced to give up BECAUSE HE FUCKING PAID FOR IT AND WAS NOT POSING ANY THREAT ANYWAY. To demean a human being like that just because they use their power to say “no” and you don’t happen to like it is fucking disgusting and disgraceful.

My family has a SHIT ton of miles with them but we’ve just decided to never fly with them again. My dad even called them this afternoon and asked, “So when will it be my turn to be forcibly removed from my paid seat, beaten, and degraded?”

Fuck them. And fuck anyone who thinks what United did was okay.

so fun fact I called the show’s thematic use of Hamilton all the way back in 2x03

but it seems like people are still missing the very blatant symbolism they used in 2x13?

like

y’all

Supergirl went so extra here I don’t even know where to start

they splurged on a location shoot and period costume rentals

just so they could literally dress up Mon-El as Alexander Hamilton–

a dude who meets his downfall via the winning combination of his own ego and a chronic inability to listen to his wife

a dude who is followed around by a spectre of death, in the form of a human bullet, for the entire fucking play

–and then act out the scene

where he dies

Dauðra Dura - III & IV
In old norse religion, it is believed that if you need to find answers which cannot be found in this life, you have to seek and acquire them from the realm of the dead. The most known gate into that realm is through the graves of the glorious dead. All the pictures of this album - Doors of the dead - have been taken at various gravefields in Sweden.
