An older way of looking at the circuits, what’s known as the Platonic turn
One of the main themes of Homer is glory (kleos) for instance. While sources, principles, invisibles are conceptualized as the pantheon of the gods. Most today are still at the level of opinion-glory. Then a good portion of our expert-caste is at the level of intelligibles. You could look at the belief system today as a synthesis of Homer and Plato- the gods have been replaced with Ideas, and the Ideas act as a mythology.
