Hi,

Shamanism draws communities together with unified ideas of co-existing with an invisible world that surrounds us all the time. For the peoples of the past the structure of their civilization might easily have been seen as existing in this invisible realm, which could be accessed through dreams, visions and altered states of consciousness and was as real to them as the physical world is to us. In fact, to them there was no real division between the two. So the shamanic civilization co-existed in two worlds, the reason why very little physical evidence of its place in reality can be seen outside the Paleolithic painted caves and the earliest examples of monumental architecture such as Gobekli Tepe.
