Ah, yes, life ( and death ) goes on with or without any or all of us.
This forum is open to all, like anon and yourself, to voice their concerns, without strict censorship. Your views were very interesting and strongly expressed, as were anon's, and dealt with issues many people find troubling - even if not strictly about mental illness.
I like your word "woes" - there are many aspects of irritation and even misery which are not illness as such.
There are of course real and relevant diferences in CULTURE, and in how people from different backgrounds view and interpret the world ; I'm not sure there's any good evidence that any of us differ in basic psychology. And you'll find beliefs in collective phenomena, oneness with the universe, etc., in many dultures. I suspect part of our problems in all communities lies in our departure from such broad communal / shared beliefs, towards a materialistic culture with very individualised selfishness. Some of the ugly things we see in our communities are completely foreign to any of our traditional cultures - baby rape, killing for cell-phones, and so on, are foul from whatever culture one views them,offensive to all of them - and yet many perpetrators don't seem to share any of these world-views that would help them to see such actions as repugnant.
Even Europe and America have very strong folk roots in music and rhythm, though the older forms, popular for centuries, tend to get neglected in favour of the mass marketed pop stuff.
Like you, I hope we find ourselves left with a whole ot more than brief rapture
