Loss of control fuels rituals, superstition

Here's a rather vague description of recent research into control and belief. The big elephant in the room with this article is that religion must have simply arisen in chaotic times, a sentiment I'm rather indifferent to. But it's an interesting thing to watch for in myself. It also supports the Eastern notion of cultivating acceptance of what happens to us, without trying to fit it all into a framework of meaning.
