Cargo Cult - Aircraft

Cargo Cult - Aircraft
Description:Whenever a civilization (technologically or otherwise less advanced) comes into contact with visitors and their sophisticated technologies, which the less advanced civilization does not understand, a situation is created known as the "God effect". Another term for it is "cargo cult", derived from the word cargo, meaning goods, and in this case the technological objects. This is how the visitors came to be worshipped as "Gods" or other supernatural beings by such tribes and peoples. Even in the 20th century, contacts between the natives of the islands of Melanesia and Micronesia, in the West Pacific, and US and Japanese troops during World War II, as well as many other encounters with ethnologists in the inaccessible jungles of New Guinea and South America, were marked by this "God effect". Mythology comes to life. The natives build planes out of wood and imitated the things they saw at their "Gods".
