[ibid, 13.9] The conflict between people is so entrenched that it grinds all social progress to a halt, and all I can do is wait for my neighbor to attack and kill me�or try to get to him first.

Three aspects of these changes particularly stand out:(1) the change in external rituals; (2) the change in the willingness and openness of Buddhist and Christian priests to cooperate on common rituals; (3) the change in society at large: altered conceptions of death and dying, life after death and newly adopted ideas of karma and reincarnation. The first six books of the epic are modeled on Homer's Odyssey, and tell how the Trojan hero Aeneas escapes from the sacking of Troy and makes his way to Italy.
