Perception of taboo towards nature by human beings

The concept of "forbidden" in human psyche is inborn and normally realizes itself in the preservation of certain territories, natural complexes, which remain untuched as a result of inner psychological needs. Pagan worship of natural forces represents fantastic explanation of human perception of "forbidden" objects. Modem monotheistic religions and jurisdiction do not guarantee against pollution of existing "forbidden" territories. Return of human society to paganism being impossible, it is necessary to use science and culture to save nature and wild life.
