hehe Confidence especially was important, so a way to explain things helped alleviate the tension between mankind and their environment as consciousness developed beyond the ordinary primal drive into awareness and sentience and questions arose concerning nature and why anything existed at all. Fears of fire, water, earth, and air were placated by developing rituals and chants that created the illusion that mankind could control it, which also gave birth to magical practices which still exist around the globe today. Everything was treated with a special reverence from lighting a fire to cooking a meal, because it was all magical to early man. Praying to the gods for favors and boons began as part of those rituals, and sacrifice to placate the gods began when those seemed to fail.
I'z stating frum mai noo script:
In our ancient past there were a lot of fears and uncertainties and feeling protected or guided by some invisible force likely helped with confidence among the people so they could more successfully hunt and track animals. It helped the troop feel an interconnectedness that in turn yielded culture such as stories, art, and song, and kept the people from fighting too much least they incite the anger of the gods. Lightning, thunder, rain, flowing water, the growth of trees, and the passage of time were all a mystery to primal peoples, so at first they assigned spirits for each manifestation of nature and followed those spirits closely, which in some cases increased proficiency and awareness for its people.

No matter the inspiration, he is funny. As I said, coulda been inspired by some of my back-country kin folk!!! (Not really, well, unless you count my Uncle Stub --- so named for getting drunk on moonshine and chopping his index finger off while chopping wood!)
