Question about English (US)

The passage below is an excerpt from a book on human psychology.

I am wondering what "it" in the first sentence refers to. I guess "it " refers to "our projection" partly because "it" in the second sentence seems to refer to "our projection", but it makes more sense to think "it" refers to "uncertainty." I am not sure which is correct.

Our projection of minds onto animals and inanimate objects alike is the expression of a psychological framework that we evolved to come with uncertainty in the many forms it presents itself: what an animal is going to do next, when the next storm will arrive, or whether the winter will ever end. Before science, it was the best way of dealing with everything unpredictable.
