Concepts of Primal Religion

Unitive Experience vs compartmentalization

-Ancient Africa: Life is all encompassing, seen as sacred.
-Modern society: fragmented lifestyle, segmented reality

Space vs Place

-Ancient Africa: geographically, place is not distinctive of different areas, but pertains worldwide as sacred.
-Modern Society: place is an identity throughout history, and thus separates and distinuishes people

Kairos vs Chronos

-Ancient Africa: people live more off the sense of "timelessness", in the present, the eternal here and now. No true concept of future.
-Modern Society: life is ordered chronologically,
eternity meaning forever ahead of us (going on and on), seperating importance from here & now.
Religion = way of life
(here and now vs linear timeline)
