Project based learning - Spiritualiti in Brave New World

  1. 1. S P I R I T U A L I T Y S E B A S T I A N B E R N A L , B E G O Ñ A P E R E D A A N D L U I S S A N T I A G O R A M I R E Z
  2. 2. D E F I N I T I O N • A PROCESS OF PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION , THE ACT OF BEING SPIRITUAL. COMES FROM THE TERM “SPIRIT” THAT MEANS : “ANIMATING OR VITAL PRINCIPLE IN MAN AND ANIMALS”
  3. 3. O B J E C T I V E • Developing your critical thinking skills by deepening your conceptions of Brave New World.
  4. 4. R E A L W O R L D E X A M P L E • THE MAJORITY OF SPIRITUAL PEOPLE ARE POOR , THIS DOESN’T MEAN RICH PEOPLE ARE NOT BELIEVERS. THIS MEANS POOR PEOPLE HAVE NOTHING AND THEIR SPIRITUALITY AND FAITH IN GOD GIVES THE SOMETHING TO HOLD ONTO , GIVES THEM HOPE. THEY PRAY FOR A BETTER LIFE AND THEY PRAY TO GO TO HEAVEN WHEN THEY DIE.
  5. 5. E X A M P L E S • Spirituality in Mexico is really strong because it is a country where most of the population is very poor. They rely a lot on religion and they pray to La Virgen de Guadalupe. Is the thing that keeps them happy and thankful about life. • Another example of spirituality is on Rome, Italy. Even if there are not as much poor people than in other countries, people are very spiritual because that is where the Pope is. They feel close to God. They pray as much as they can and are very faithful.
  6. 6. R E L I G I O N E N F O R C E M E N T • Also people believe because they are indoctrinated into being part of a religion since they are young and can barely speak. This way people will learn that being part of a religion is the “safe” and “normal”. This way people are used to this way of life and will make it difficult to change it.
  7. 7. S P I R I T U A L I T Y I N T H E R E A L W O R L D • Spirituality in a brave new world is not to a god or heaven, it is to what they make them believe they are, what they do, what their life is going to be like. They make them believe they have a community, stability, and identity which they don’t have because they are clones. They make them believe everything they do is for their own good, which is not.
  8. 8. S P I R I T U A L I T Y A N D G O V E R N M E N T • Are spirituality and religion the same thing as government? • Pretty much they are the same thing in a certain point of view. The church tells us what is right and what is wrong and if we are going to heaven or hell when we die. The government tells us what we should do because of the laws and if we don’t we could go to jail or live a normal life. Also they both have a lot of power on the society. While on the government there is a president, on religion there is the pope. At the end of the day everything is about how we see things and our faith.
  9. 9. S P I R I T U A L I T Y I N T H E R E A L W O R L D A N D I N T H E B O O K • In the real world poor people hold on to religion more than rich people because they have nothing. On The book poor people hold on to soma more because they are sad and have nothing to keep them happy, the alphas and betas also like soma but not as much as the epsilons because they have a happy and successful life
  10. 10. R E L I G I O N I N B R AV E N E W W O R L D • Religion is hidden and its replaced with Fordism and SOMA. • People turn to SOMA to suppress emotions and avoid issues.
  11. 11. Q U O T E ! ! “What follows? Evidently, that we can be independent of God. 'The religious sentiment will compensate us for all our losses.' But there aren't any losses for us to compensate; religious sentiment is superfluous.“ ! (Huxley, Brave New World)
  12. 12. C O N C L U S I O N In the book “Brave new world” , a utopian society lives in a place where any kind of religion was completely abolished by a World State Government. Thanks to the 10 World Controllers , not even one person knows that religions and a God existed in the past. Spirituality in Brave New World is based in Fordism. Fordism is based in Henry T. Ford , a pioneer in technology of producing things. Service groups are used instead of church , is were people go tu unite and feel happy. The theory of the leaders is that religion causes wars and pain in society. Mustafa Mond said : “God isn't compatible with machinery and scientific medicine and universal happiness.“ We think Mustafa Mond is somehow right.Our society only clings to religion, because most of us are conditioned to by our parents and our environment. It is true that many people find help in God, but even more people suffer through wars in God’s name. The human race is slowly losing the ability to have faith in itself and rather trusts in God or destiny. The healthiest option would be to try to combine technology and religion, or just to let them exist side by side.
