The section highlighted was called “High Gods”, detailing scottish folklorist Andrew Lang’s interpretation of the all father. It explains how pre-literature civilizations carried this tradition of the Supreme God, and how this belief is found in Australia, Africa, America, and Asia. Further expanded on is how the high god was usually surrounded by a court of lesser gods, which were more approachable and worship-able by the common person. This high god was remote, and not easily reachable. Sounds like the clock maker honestly. He is above good and evil, and is both male and female. He is a god containing contradictions. One of the oldest worshipped gods, they could be considered Zues, Jupiter, Yaweh, or a number of First Nation gods.
