Jain's reality of "unconditional un-dividedness" differs from Western reality: Jain philosophy states that God creates, helps survive, and destroys the universe. It asserts existence of universe with adherence of certain laws. Infinity is the result of the past and the future. The real world consists of two classes of objects: Living: • Conscious • Soul • Cheta • Jiva Non living: • Unconscious • Achetan • Ajiva Non living objects are classified into five. They are: • Matter • Space • Time • Medium of Motion • Medium of Rest Concept of reality is an entity to have existence which is known as "Sat or truth." The basic cultural patterns of India are worldview, dhamm, reincarnation, caste system, and spirit of tolerance. An individual category belief is closely interrelated and represents continuum within same culture, with normal variations of pattern. While, contradictions are probably uniform throughout societies, in spite of these contradictions overall integration occurs with Hindu Indian cultural patterns. Further, it is possibly simplified for isolating cultural patterns considering them at a single time.
