Ancient civilizations understood that sunlight provides visibility, warmth, health and vitality. Their understanding of how sunlight provides these life-sustaining influences was immersed in mythology and cultural traditions. Offspring, dissatisfied with the intellectual power of their ancestors’ explanations, sought new mythologies in their search for a better understanding of the cosmos and their relationship with it.
