The age of myth ended when humans learned to think rationally, and the precision of realism lacked romance, unlike the unknown, which can give rise to endless imagination.
The Gods were born in nature. During the childhood of human civilisation, the ancestors had a close relationship with nature, treating heaven and earth, mountains and rivers with reverence and gentleness, imbuing all things with spirituality.
