*gigglabyte* :) Maybe they got more "ignorant" [or "selfish"/self-centreness /"lustfulness"] (as in the Buddhist philosophical concept of "ignorance" - lacking knowledge of the causes & effects of thoughts & actions which continuely frustrate all sentient beings from attaining happiness &/or enlightenment/liberation). Any similar ideas/words to this kind of "ignorance" in various ConLangs/ConCultures??? Any ConCultures based somewhat on Asian models?? I think we might have discussed similar subject matter but not necessarily this specific one. czHANg
