what common threads do you notice as you compare all of these different philosophical and religious ideas

In the centuries surrounding 500 B.C.E., new philosophical and religious ideas emerged in Greece, China, India, and the Middle East more or less simultaneously. It’s a pretty remarkable phenomenon. For this discussion refer to the snapshot on page 131 that includes brief summaries of thinkers and their ideas.

To what extent do the thinkers share outlooks? [Or, what common threads do you notice as you compare all of these different philosophical and religious ideas.] Give examples of what you find. What do you think explains the commonalities in these ideas across vast geographic space and their nearly simultaneous emergence in human history?
