Nature and Creation

As people go about their daily lives, at times they fail to understand the significance of having an awareness of nature, the universe and all that is real – or unreal. By unreal, it is meant that things of the mind such as ideas, ideologies, and myths that are rooted in language, culture, customs, morals and values of the different people of the world do exist. Moreover, studying the underlying mythological ideals of a culture, including the symbols, commonalities and differences of a myth and how it fits into the society of a culture, impacts understanding of the culture (Menida-Landa). This essay focuses on the concept of myths, particularly those of creation, and how they connect with humans and nature.
