sports, music, and history

It's also the same with the Olympics and other international sports. Since
everyone plays by the same rules and has an equal chance of winning, it
provides an opportunity to break the ice and get to know others as real
people. (Differences in population to draw upon for athletes and in money to
spend on coaching and training can make a difference, but even so, real
talent has something of a fair chance of winning out regardless of high tech
and wealth.)


We can also see the same thing happening with music. People can enjoy the
same music regardless of the language they speak, their religion, and their
political views. (Again, there are different types of music and the same
people that may sit together to enjoy new age or soft rock music may not
last long at a country music concert.)


This even applies to theosophists of different sects and holding different
views on theosophical history. We could go hiking, listen to music and enjoy
it, and have a good time together without once opening our mouths and
starting a fight.

It's an opportunity for people who live in countries that don't count to 
briefly imagine that they somehow do.
