We need to shed this myth of the golden age---Celtic...Kundalini..Sumerian....all of it. But can we learn bits and pieces from other cultures? Sure thing!

You have misunderstood what I wrote, but that is OK
and entirely my fault.
Another day perhaps.

They just take on new forms.
Some of today's UFOs may be repackaged faeries.
But any way you look at it, this type of behavior is a result of mostly unconscious hungers present in the nervous system. Of course much, if not most of this hunger is due to the desire to mitigate or cheat "death".
By far worse than that, with the motive to immerse ourselves in an adaptive behavior to make us feel better, there is created a self-induced feedback loop (control system) that will keep us perpetually deluded, to ensure we don't accidentally learn something "true", but conflicting.
If all material life creates/manifests these and have being doing so presumably for billions of years that would make for an awful lot of 'faded gods' which may explain why there are so many of them and perhaps even why they seem envious of us material beings as without us they cannot exist.
If 'we' then abandon them over time they are left craving our belief and attention to gain more 'life,power,energy'or maybe just to be able to experience something of the material universe again.
As for books and research I must remain mysterious, as I must protect my identity.
Souls and gods are very similar. If you understand one you automatically understand the psychology of both. INCLUDING how mistruths and confusions have created both. 10,000 years or so ago..."souls" did not exist.
The slab, or stele, was recovered from an Iron Age city called Sam’al in Turkey. It dates to around the 8th century B.C. On the 800-pound, three-foot-tall piece of rock was an incised picture of a man, the deceased, who was presumably cremated, and words that explained that the soul of this man now resided within the stone slab....
...It's hard to say exactly when the idea of a second self came into play. Presumably the recognition of a soul appeared hand-in-hand with human consciousness, and it was probably voiced when we had language to put the idea of a soul into words. That would place the time frame for a soul around 200,000 years ago, when humans experienced a cultural explosion which they expressed in art, clothing, and evidence of religion.
Clearly, at that point and beyond, humans had moved beyond solving how to find enough food, and they were using their excess brain power and leisure time to think of other things.
