  1. Societies with a high dependence on animals will be more likely to have zoomorphic deities (88).Hayden, Brian - Alliances and ritual ecstasy: human responses to resource stress, 1987 - 2 Variables

    This article hypothesizes that ritual ecstasy was selected for as a way for hunter-gatherers to cope with resource uncertainty by unifying separate groups. Results support this hypothesis and suggest a relationship between resource stress and deities as well as dependence on animals and presence of zoomorphic deities.

  3. Almost all hunter gatherers have some kind of astronomical systemHayden, Brian - Astronomy in the Upper Palaeolithic, 2011 - 1 Variables

    Researchers examine the ethnographic record, sampling 82 hunter gatherer societies from the HRAF World Cultures database, for cross-cultural patterns of archaeological evidence of knowledge of astronomy and constellations. Surveying the data, researchers identified many patterns in the upper paleolithic, noting the importance of further examination of this topic.
