An integrative view

An integrative view proposed by Cassirer In the field of “symbolic forms” magical and mythical thinking are considered as the basic level, at which form (signifiant ( signifiant) ) and meaning (signifié signifié) ) are not yet distinguished. The name of the God (or spirit) is directly related to the God (spirit); if you use the name, the God is called forward and must appear. In some religions it is therefore not allowed to spell the name of God as this would force God. Holy scriptures are interpreted as written by God (via the hand of some prophet); their form and meaning is fixed for eternity (in a sense they are not linguistic expressions in the normal sense). 20

The mythical semantics are rather fluid than discrete and transitions between categories are easy as if no frontiers existed. Metamorphoses between humans, animals, plants or stones are simple. Sentences may have many different meanings related to different levels of interpretations and some of these meanings may be hidden and only accessible to priests or initiated persons, who are not allowed to teach these meanings to non initiated persons. Thus this code is closed and does only unfold in special cult-actions cult actions or in situations of trance, where a kind of communication beyond language (glossolalia glossolalia or the speaking-in speaking in-tongues) tongues) appears. In a recent study one of the observed women said: “You’re not really out of control. But you have no control over what’s happening. You’re just flowing”. 21
