Western society is built upon machines. You live with them and even within them. And among them, too. Don’t tell me that your environment doesn’t influence your mind. It surely does. We Tibetans are not very tender. It is because our mountains never have been. To live in Tibet, one must be as strong as a yak. Mountains are peaceful, though. You cannot fight with mountains as you do with the jungle. If you run too fast along a mountain path, you may fall down from a rock and die. That was why we have never been too aggressive: just strong, hardworking, a bit retired people. It was mountains that formed our national character.
