Religion

Pure Land Buddhism + Christianity

Hetomic religion is essentially Pure Land Buddhism but more proselytizing or apocalyptic. They apply the concept of sin/karma and reincarnation to the world collectively in addition to individual humans. That's how the world itself began and ended many times; if humanity collectively behaves badly enough, an apocalypse will come due to the accrued karmic debt and a new universe will arise from the ashes. One is hence exhorted to seek enlightenment, both on a personal level and the societal level.

Music

Instruments

Tuning

The dominant tuning system used in Hetomic music is a tetrachordal tradition.
