Ever since he comes out of the womb, Man seeks to control the environment. He seeks to make his existence more comfortable or his travel more rapid or his food supply closer to his will.
Whenever he has no control, he invokes unknown, mysterious forces. To Favour his Endeavours.
When he is in danger, and hence in Little Control, he invokes the Unknown.
When he was Little, he could always Run to his Mother.
Whenever he loses Control, he has a Faith in something Other than Himself, Aligned to his Cause.
He attempts to Invoke this Alignment, and Enlighten those around him, to His magical Control over the environment.

He cannot see his Own Contradictions.
He needs Others to Correct his Perceptions.
He is Human.
