Popular Art (avatars): Purgatory

Discussion in 'Evangelism' started by Abishai100, Dec 6, 2013.

  1. When athletes take illegal and dangerous performance-enhancing steroids to meet the prosperity demands of a celebrity-economics media, how does their mental attitude towards labor change? After all, when young boys and girls dream of becoming famous athletes in adulthood, they do not fear the ominousness of taking steroids to meet the demands of the newspapers.

    In America, comic books are very popular, since they present avatars (self-idealization characters) that present ideas about strength frailties and body transformation aspirations. Comic book avatars such as Aquaman (a superhuman who can travel under-water at great speeds) and Supergirl (a pretty woman who can soar through the sky with great agility and muscular excellence) remind Americans of the emotional intrigue involved with natural fantasies.

    For the modern consumerism era, these comic book avatars capture human anxieties about gluttony dangers. For example, the comic book avatar She-Hulk (a woman of extra-ordinary strength) may serve to warn young women of the dangers of taking steroids.

    In the timeless Christian purgatory poem, "The Inferno" (Dante), a journeyman wanders through various levels of hell and perdition and encounters souls contemplating and suffering in seas of prosperity confusion sometimes in terrible ways.

    If we integrate modern comic book avatar stories about consumerism-purgatory relevant characters such as She-Hulk with iconic Ancient Greek mythology consumerism-purgatory relevant avatars such as Icarus (a foolish and proud young lad who constructed fantastic wings of wax which melted in the hot sun when he dared to soar too high for his own good), we could come at some understanding of the symbolic relationship between art and evangelism, if such a relationship can be prudently marketed today.

    Perhaps modern divination Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Angels and Demons" (2009) represent new age consumerism debates about cosmetic curiosity.

    My favorite modern consumerism avatar is Chef Smurf (a delightful magical gnome who prepares enchanting pastries that create optimism).
