One of the arguments marshaled against traditional cultures' invocation of spirits is that they're simply projecting their own fears onto the world. That they're anthropomorphizing the world.
It is notable that individuals have a telos. It would be bizarre for us to come across someone who did things arbitrarily. Even say the incorporation of chance elements in an artwork is motivated by telos.
Are we anthropomorphizing the world when we incorporate cause and effect into our understanding of how the world acts?
