In a Native American parable, the Creator gathers all the animals and says: "I want to hide something from humans until they are ready for it - the realisation that they create their own reality."
'Give it to me.I'll fly it to the Moon,' says the eagle.
'No, one day soon they will go there and find it.'
'How about the bottom of the ocean?', asks the salmon.
'No, they will find it there too.'
'I will bury it in the great plains', says the buffalo.
'They will soon dig and find it there.'
'Put it inside them', says the wise grandmother mole.
'Done', says the Creator. 'It is the last place they will look.'
