There also arose the cults and sects that had the effect of interpolating western culture with a variety of selected palatable elements from the exotic polytheistic cluster of Hinduism (Sanãtana Dharma) from the Indian subcontinent, and from some of the eastern ethical movements (Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism) from China, Tibet et al. And the re-emergence of pre-scientific, superstitious, or irrational, concepts and practises, v.g., shamanism, witchcraft, astrology et cetera. These and ...
