There is a commonly shared concept of ‘a vital force which suffuses and animates the universe’ (Waterson 1990: 115), which is variously referred to in the literature as a ‘vital principle’ (Endicott 1970: 47), or ‘cosmic energy’ (Errington 1983: 545), or ‘invisible force’ (Southon 1995: 136), and is associated with notions of ‘potency’, ‘soul-stuff’ and ‘spirit’ (Errington 1983: 545). In Malay and Indonesian languages, the concept is commonly represented by the word semangat and its cognates. There are local variations in the meaning and usage of this word, but there is general agreement ‘about a pervasive life-force which may attach itself in differing concentrations not only to living things but also to inanimate objects’ (Waterson 1990: 115).

Individual houses and village sections are connected by tenuously placed wooden planks or lengths of bamboo above the water or raised bridges between coral foundations. Some of the older village sections have larger areas of coral rock foundation in front of the houses. The settlement is accessible from the land by two main arterial coral rock pathways, one near a village office (kantor desa) and one near the mosque. There are also arterial footpaths running parallel to the main waterways. Every house in the settlement has direct access to the sea.
