@Tomáš-Karb U means shamans like from south America ?? in another word witch doctors, shepherds or nomads live with in the nature and have a deep knowledge of herbs, spices, all type of magical herbs because of Thier roots passed on to generation or knowledge gained travelling on place to another.. meeting like minded people!!
so yeah I agreee it's oldest as old as cave men early settlement i guess?
it's a sect of herbal natural living content people .. another word meditative people!!
Just like to share the knowledge with love and respect and accept it as it is !!
I think it's better to go in dept paganism from all over globe .. and when you know all the angles of circle .. you will see the circle as tangent so ..u will see very clearly , that all are same .we did this culture or religion sects because to run a community ..later rules and regulations applies , likes and dislikes, agenda .. then with greed or fear not able to accept new idea and we fuck each other logic and will be illogical to each other as we now ..
End of the the will ,.want to be alpha dominant team sect or groups .. .. so yeah but nice to understand ..
Any way all the best you are young I guess so .. my times are different, information was not as like now in internet some one else read the book giving profound summary ot perspective view..my days no net story , just a article in news paper.. it's wonderful I like it any way saves lot of my time to understand well after reading the book but I did refer book.. it's s vicious unbreakable study and research!! Goes on and on refering book to book !!
