This expression comes from cults in Indonesia and Australia ++. These
are local cults invented by natives to explain how the white man got
all his material possesions. They thought he got it from heaven, so
they carried out certain rituals, because they thought that would help
them to get these material possesions, too.
A pretty sad story all together...
