Hakiism

Hakiism is a widespread religion first introduced to Ivinis sometime around 9,000 Y.

Tenets

The primary thesis of Hakiism is that the Pavala-Haki system is unnatural. All the other planets in the Yakeic System are singular and dominate the masses of their respective satellite systems. In The Haki Manifesto, the authors call for a rejection of the unnaturalness of Haki by means of a 'collective human migration as a species' to Ivinis, which lies beyond the terminator and is 'safe from Haki's haunting, wicked reflection of Yakei's holy and pure light rays through the Cosmic Ether'. In addition, the authors further suggest that God had placed humans on Pangaea in order to test their greed; if 'Man were as pure as God has hoped his Creations would be', they would all collectively agree to give up the valuable land of Delezia-Hazele and move to Ivinis to 'live simpler lives in confidence of having passed the Test of Faith and Morals'.

The authors even go as far as to suggest that all animals and plants be purged from Delezia-Hazele in order to 'leave the land barren and boring so that the Eye of Haki shall gaze upon nothing but the reflection of its innermost, deepest soul-less self'.

Symbols

The symbol of Hakiism

The symbol of Hakiism, shown on the right, is a circle with a smaller circle inside of it. The larger circle represents Pavala, while the smaller circle represents Ivinis. In this way, Ivinis is thought of as a "world within a world", protected by Pavala from "the unnatural, degenerate influence of Haki's eye" by "Pavala's mighty, supple and earthen flesh". Ironically, the symbol itself somewhat resembles an eye, a controversy that resulted in the creation of Hopelessism, a religion that believes both Pavala and Haki are corrupting influences and that one must wear shoes at all times, never sit on the ground, and pray for a speedy demise via asteroid impact from Sokata's Herd, among other things.

Influence in Ivinis

The Exiled Folk

The Exiled Folk is a major sub-religion of Hakiism, and is the predominant religion in Betaliz. The Exiled Folk are bound by a pact of death to never venture beyond the terminator and see Haki with their own eyes. People who have been to Delezia-Hazele are viewed with distrust, and food and objects imported from those regions are considered tainted and special tea must be ingested afterwards in order to cleanse one's self. The Betaliz-Nautical Peace Agreement of 9,824 allows all Betaliz citizens to recieve a travel visa to Aahrus in order to visit the island of Lancha Jue, the closest landmass to the Antihaki Point and by extension the furthest landmass on Pavala from Haki.

Pure Hakiism

Pure Hakiism is a sub-religion of Hakiism. The Pure Hakiists recognize that God had placed humans on Pangaea to test their greed, and that God used sexual desire as a motivator to keep humankind rooted on Delezia-Hazele. Pure Hakiists consider any sexual thoughts concieved under the light of Haki to be corrupted and sinful, and look down upon any humans concieved on Delezia-Hazele as byproducts of a sinful act. Followers of Pure Hakiism who lived on Delezia-Hazele practice what is known as Clear Masturbation, where they "maintain an empty mind while masturbating so that no cursed, depraved Thoughts from Haki take root in his head, and upon orgasm release His seed into his empty brain so that he is Filled only with the purest, most biological desires."
