Looking for the names of any texts that can be considered a bible for native american religions, animism, shamanism, early wicca, fae, and pantheism

Im a theology buff and it seems that there are no central books for any of these practices outside of bullshit from the new age section written by a bald man who likes cats

When I was a child my mom bought me a book called Brother Eagle, Sister Sky. It was just a Native American story, but it seemed to be describing how their existential beliefs function. I think they had a very oral tradition, told around the camp fire. Could be wrong, mang.

I've been pondering on embroaching my skilltelect at writing passable sci-fiction into a book that dwelges the line between a, let's say type 2 civilization and a type 3 civilization. I was thinking having maybe a the type 2'ers at much better than the civ 3 people at like a noteworthy skill or aspect, but the level 3'ers of course being so, so much more far advanced, what with having the entire planet system harvested, when so surely the 2'ers only control one star.
Please strike me up on this what could be an ever fading dividing line there.
Have an idea? Got anything noteworthy?
Because it could quite easily make it's way into print.!

Sci fi's set in space are played out now. The setting should be within the mind or metaphysical or something. You dont want something generic. Who said type 2 or 3 was an actual criteria that exists?

Maybe think about positive and negative aspects of current societies, then take ideology projecting a better (or worse) way of living into the future, then set those projections or current way of living against each other, and examine both faults as the story line plays out.

Ursula Le Guin's "Dispossessed" did this well with an astrophysicist character living on the anarchist moon who is ostracized there for wanting to collaborate with other astrophysicists on the authoritarian planet. The moon civ had few resources so had to coordinate very carefully, but in an egalitarian way, while the planet had alot, but was extremely unequal, as we see through the eyes of the protagonist as he tries to navigate this place and its contradictions and yet accomplish the project he arrived there to do in the first place.

I'm on the lookout for some comfy books about real stuff.
Travel journals are often neat, really liked A Year In Provence by Peter Mayle.
Started on Pilgrimage to Mecca by Lady Evelyn Cobbold recently, but since the entries are dated I decided to read it at the same dates as they're written.

I see your looking for somthing to help someone.
I recently had one of my books stolen its" I want my cbd now"
Well its about how it can help people, what it helps with, and how cbd implements things. The whole plot behind it though is remedy includes healing everything vs how beneficial it can be. It just can't include all as its just an old wife's tale....

Any retard can write an American novel. Why do we allow this? Other countries preserve their national classics by exercising their disdain whilst reviewing contemporary authors. Does America shit out genius or have we lost it and gone completely crazy? Has 'genius' lost it's meaning here?

Yeah I suppose you are right about it. I can share my little example as well. I was asked to write an assignment for American novels but I'm totally useless in writing so I asked for helped to https://assignmentshark.com/ and I've got light novel after all. When my techer checked it she was impressed and suggested me to publish my "american novel" in public. I refused but they still think it was a masterpiece.

For the first day I saw you
Your heart was red
And when I went to Church
You saw me dead

For when the teacher said
You always find your heart

Your kindness just tore me apart
Now I am far away
And with another friend
But whenever I think of you
It makes me wonder

I guess I'm just roasted in red

A thunderous explosion rocked the ground and family members steadied each other as children cried hysterically.

"Help me! HELP ME!! SOMEONE," a woman further up ahead screamed as she held onto the blood puddle pooling underneath her. Gun fire erupted from somewhere on the street above sending the women and girls screaming as the falling glass showered them.

The grates above the canal rattled as more of the platforms appeared, the first two just a blur, then a third stopping halfway across

...and in a blinding spectral corona carved a path through the crowds trapped by the high walls. Yelps and shrieks turned to gurgles as collagen and flesh dissolved and burst into flames. Blood underwent a phase transition and someone's intestines erupted from their mouth in a red mist. Some were bisected as though by a master surgeon, others simply "popped". Mikkikizumi stood unflinchingly as the invisible beam suddenly veered towards those turning to flee- annihilating them- before finally dissipating.

Ribbons of translucent flesh hung in the air as a few of the victims crawled or rolled over before finally succumbing. A man engulfed in flames ran past screaming as the few remaining survivors alternatively cowered or ran away while the wounded groaned or played dead.

The thing seemingly hesitated for a moment before one of its bio-cameras caught a bullet, a viscous blue followed by the crack of tracers overhead as another burst of gunfire sounded from nearby.

Mikkikizumi stared as the thing forgot about them then whirled around and with a roar of auto-cannon fire moved against its assailant with lightning speed.

"Nyaa! NYYYAAA!!" She yelled out in the relative din, "NYAAA!!" picking her way through the dead and disoriented.

A dirty half-naked child blankly shook the contorted, charred body of her guardian as Mikkikizumi made her way out of the mouth of the tunnel, stepping over the now silent woman in the hijab.

Darwin's Origin of Species

https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/1228

It surprised me how much modern basic biology (just the shit you learn in high school ie. all organisms are derived from a single ancestors, survival of the fittest, and Kingdom, Phylum, Class, etc.) is stuff that Darwin was advocating for based on his ideals about adaptation and survival of the fittest. How he identifies and debates the arguments against his ideas and how many of these arguments are the same we have today as they were almost 200 years ago when he penned it. I linked the 1st edition because that is what I read. Some people like the 6th and call it "The Definitive Edition".

I was gonna make a post for this book but figured not many have heard of it but it was good.

Lord of the Dark Places by Hal Bennett

Very, off the wall, dark humor that will have you wondering how it ever got printed but it was a great story. Black man gets brought up to the God of penis size by his father who kills his wife at the beginning of the book during sex. Then it goes into what happens after and his life. Smokes a lot of pot throughout the whole thing and describes his sexual experiences. His life as a father himself. Then it just all spirals out of control into more sex, marijuana, deaths, and just craziness.

It's a dope book and I was suprised at how good it was.

I read the summary and thought it would be something I liked but I ended up feeling like I wasted my time unfortunately. There would be moments where I felt like the writer set up an interesting story but fell short very fast. I wasn't sure if it was due to poor writing, or just the short story format, or even both of these things. It was very boring most of the time and the stories felt pointless. I really struggled to understand the point of what I had read.

Very poor effort from the writer. His ideas needed fleshing out. Zimmer land was the most interesting but was very blatantly a rip off of like Westworld or something. What did you think?
