A man discovered fire. Having discovered it, he headed north were the people were living in colder conditions, and he began to teach them his fire creating skill. He showed them the benefits of warming themselves in the winter, cooking their food and using fire for construction. They all learned quickly. As soon as they had learned, the man went somewhere else without giving people a chance to thank him – for that was a great man.
Great people do not need adoration. Fame and glory are for those tied to an egowise life. So the great man would go onto teach the next tribe how to make fire. The next Tribe was also excited the Fire Teacher became more and more famous.
Then the priests, fearing their own popularity would decline, decided to get rid of him, and so they poisoned him. But to prevent the people from becoming suspicious, the priests took a picture of the man, his fire making tools, they put it on the highest altar in the temple and told the people to venerate him. They developed a ritual and a whole liturgy for venerating the discoverer of fire.
