I don't want to derail the thread about the religiosity of being Primal, so I am going to start another discussion here.
Does anyone else think that "cults" have a bad name?
For me, I do not see how society is anything except many different inter-connected rings of different cults. Sports is a mega-cult, under which many smaller local cults practice as fan circles of respective teams. They have ritual clothing, a holy day, leaders, legends, superstititions and lucky behavior. The same is true of politics, or of celebrity, or of anything else that one could name that brings people together.
"Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."
