Characterization, storyline, and other aspects of the novel are all very intimately tied to Butler's life. Butler and Lauren were both raised in traditional Baptist homes, and they have both always been captivated by the psychological effects of religion. Butler had the opportunity to explore cultural and racial variety while growing up in the ethnically mixed Pasadena neighbourhood. Butler drew on her historical reading and background to create the fictitious worlds. What Butler predicted for the future is more important than ever today. She saw a world that was poised to come to an end. She encountered a Black woman prophet who understood that absolutely nothing is predetermined and that we have the power to shape events and change their trajectory. It encourages us to let go of the conventions that can push us towards a disastrous future and to embrace our greatest strength—the capacity for change. She offers a vision of a humanist future where metaphysical spirituality is possible without the need for a conventional, all-powerful Supreme deity. She created imaginary worlds like the one we live in, but she also gave each of us the inspiration to follow our own goals and face our apprehension about the unknown while being brave and creative. The Earth seed aphorism serves as a constant reminder that "Everything you touch, You Change..."</p> V Meenakshy Poornima Dr. Babi Duli Copyright (c) 2022 V Meenakshy Poornima, Dr. Babi Duli http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-11-28 2022-11-28 1 6 10.24113/ijellh.v10i11.11373
