Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I might ask, for your part of the world, how you perceive the only non monotheistic  high level industrialization culture... Meaning Japan!

Most major monotheistic religions have given to man the right on "Nature" (he's a model of God), enabling it's plunder for industry.
Most non-monotheistic religions or philosophical beliefs, on the contrary argue more about an equilibrium or balance between Nature and Man.

Japan architecture and even urbanism is very different in it's relationship to Nature (even if it's "virtual")... :-)
It "looks like"... But isn't really "the same" !
