What is the modality of hominian activity?
It is claimed that U.S. society does not supply definite means of achieving self-designation other than through activity and achievement, and so goal-accomplishment becomes a means by which you characterize yourself apart from the grouping. Because other persons should be able to recognize this action, it has to be seeable and measurable. Hence financial abundance supplies one measuring of prospering activeness. Within the system, employees are prompted by promises of promotion and status symbols overtly associated with rank and file such as a superlative company car and a richly fitted business office.
Buddhist mental attitudes in South-east Asia which adhere to beliefs in reincarnation appreciation that the individual is born into his/her nowaday status and circumstances by virtuousness of meritorious acts performed in a preceding life and that struggle in this life may be wasted.
