Thinking of religions as universal philosophies does leave out the context of people’s lives at the time and place each was created. Interesting that different people had inspirational visions of how to treat each other and maybe leave off whacking everyone you didn’t agree with. The beginning of rules to live by in a diversely populated world? In today’s world we do have diversity in mixing people of different beliefs, but during the Axial Era times I wonder if people were even aware of different peoples and beliefs?
Very cool idea to be aware that people who are familiar with each other might treat each other well and not be so good at it with strangers. It anticipates a more crowded world. How about a game focused on trusting strangers? How can we be tolerant of the unknown when we are unsure if it threatens us? Don’t answer, this sounds like and after-Ramadan project:-)
