I'm very aware of the Aboriginal Dreamtime religion and its complexities as it related to the different small tribes. But what I was referring to were the African tribes described in Robert Wright's books, Non-Zero and The Moral Animal, simpler groups than what was developed in Australia. I'm not aware of how complex the Amazon tribes are. I also remember reading some of Margaret Mead's descriptions of South Pacific cultures many years ago which she described as rather simple, but there was the scandal when it was discovered that the young girls had made up stories about their sex lives which she had believed and described in great detail. My point is one set of people does not make your point that they were all complex.
