For example, they could not understand why a fully healthy person suddenly taken ill, why did not rain at his usual time, why naked, seemingly dead tree is green and fully alive at a certain time of year. Even his own shadow, beating heart and breathing were a mystery.

Usually, a person with inherent spiritual inclinations, began to associate these mysterious facts and phenomena with a supernatural force. But since she did not have the appropriate guidance and understanding, then her world was filled with souls, spirits, ghosts and demons. For example, the Algonquin, indiantsev of North America, called the human soul otachuk, which means "his shadow", a Malay of Southeast Asia believe that at death the soul of man comes out through the nostrils.

Today, we can see how, in return, to worship the Creator, people worship the creation.
