Australian Aboriginal mythology

Altjira is the sky god in Australian Aboriginal mythology. He was the central god of the Dream time. Altjira created the Earth and then retired to the sky. He is depicted as having an emu's feet.

"Dreaming" is also often used to refer to an individual's or group's set of beliefs or spirituality.

"Aboriginals believe in two forms of time; two parallel streams of activity. One is the daily objective activity, the other is an infinite spiritual cycle called the 'dreamtime', more real than reality itself. Whatever happens in the dreamtime establishes the values, symbols, and laws of Aboriginal society. It was believed that some people of unusual spiritual powers had contact with the dreamtime."
