[How did the nested form religionsuprasovereign3(sovereign2(religioninfrasovereign1)) emerge?

This is a good question.  In many ways, this is the same question as:

When did thinkdivine and thinkgroup become exclusive yet interpellating?

Before the beginning, in constrained complexity, this nested form was not differentiated.

In the beginning, as depicted in An Archaeology of the Fall, a change in the way we talk from referential to symbolic potentiated the differentiation.

The differentiation characterizes unconstrained complexity.

In Biblical myth, the differentiation was already apparent by the end of the stories of Cain and Abel in Genesis.]
