I’ve come to realise that the invention of gods and demons was a direct reaction to the development of the prefrontal cortex and the conflict this created with our primitive minds; aspects of the self had to be externalised/projected in order to understand them. And the evolution of gods and demons; multitheistic religions, in to monotheistic religions, was a response to an easing of the inner conflict created as the prefrontal cortex evolved further.
