FACTOR # 20. And the many viewpoints, interacting, become dependent upon one another’s forms and do not choose to distinguish completely the ownership of dimension points and so comes about a dependency upon the dimension points and upon the other viewpoints.

The human viewpoints are narrow and subjective to various degrees. They have differences of opinions. As they interact, they share their ideas, prejudices and beliefs. This leads to agreements. These viewpoints then become bound by such agreements. This expresses itself as cultural conditioning.

A viewpoint has two choices: either to get rid of its conditioning, or to bring about similar conditioning in others. We see both of these phenomena occurring in religion, politics and cultural assimilation.

KHTK FACTOR # 20: And many viewpoints, interacting, come to agree on subjective opinions, prejudices and beliefs. And so, they become dependent on agreements thus generated.



Subjectivity is different from person to person, or from viewpoint to viewpoint. However, there is overlap and there come about agreement and certain uniformity in perceiving, thinking and behavior.

Thus, there is religion, politics, and cultural assimilation.
