    Nietzsche’s myth is a metaphor designed to motivate all of the characters in the book to take their actions more seriously; to live with a demeanor that leads to actions that are worthy of eternal repetition. Nietzsche’s concept of eternal return is not easily understood in a literal sense— it is to be interpreted as a myth accepted for its objective value. Therefore, Nietzsche’s concept behind the eternal return is simply that “humanity cannot live without some sense of purpose and meaning in life”(Hatab 61). After the “death of God,” Nietzsche believes that without having a higher being to tell us how to live our lives, we must decide for ourselves what will make them significant(Hatab…

    In The Sacred and the Profane, Mircea Eliade traces the existence of sacred spaces and what characteristics each area follows to determine what defines a sacred space. Eliade has identified five elements of every sacred space. For a place to be sacred, there has to be a hierophany, cosmogonic qualities, a threshold, and where heavenly and earthly come to meet and has to have a break in the homogeneity of the space. To examine further, we explored Stonehill’s Chapel of Mary to see if it qualifies…

In fact, I was fortunate enough to be brought up in a community where I was surrounded by family and friends who love and support me unconditionally. I got over the fact I was away from home and just…
