>Here’s a list of “Human Universals” compiled by Donald E. Brown (Brown, D.E. 1991. Human universals. New York: McGraw-Hill) and published in The Blank Slate by Steven Pinker.

Interestingly I do not see a “zero” as an universal. And I note that the author joins “belief in the supernatural” with “religion”, but “magic” gets its own term, as well as a variety of magics (health, prosperity etc).
