As travellers visit a well on their journey they're greeted by maidens who offer them drink in a golden chalice & food on golden plates. Refreshed the traveler continue their journey. 
A king travelling the area raped a maiden and stole her gold then his men like wise assaulted her companions.  Unknown to them the maidens are spirits living in the well and are humans communication with Gaia (mother earth). Because of the violence, our connection was broken resulting in great drought and pestilence across the land. 
This myth is thousands of years old and we are still raping mother earth and her spirits... to our eventual peril.
Why are we still fracking Gaia?
