I've tried Googling but I can't come up with the right word string to trigger a correct response.
What is the belief called when a literal cause and effect for something is assumed? For example, by eating part of a lion you will acquire its ferocity. Or eating a bull's testicles will make you really macho. It's a primitive sort of belief system.
I know there's a word for this. I'm thinking pantheism but I've checked and that's not right.
No prize but self-satisfaction for the one who comes up with the answer!
