It All Started With The Spark!
On the banks of river Nile in the late B.Cs, a curious fisherman accidentally got sparked or rather electrically shocked by a fish. History stands evident to this event as the first noted experience of mankind with electricity. In Egypt, the fish was then famously known as the 'Thunderer of the Nile.'
Thunderer of the Nile
In the early ages, back then, Egyptians were distinguishably superstitious. They professed the 'Thunderer of the Nile' as a protector of other fishes. Electricity fascinated Egyptians, more so the charms of electricity or magical waves; which could travel through object with conductivity.
Later, it was discovered in scriptures of ancient cultures that certain objects when scuffed with cat's fur could attract lighter objects. This enlightened discoverers to find the notion of static electric charges.
