There is the 'particular,'

there is the group,
but there is no 'universal'.

One of the many
self-inflicted curses of humanity

is the strange, oppressive concept of
universality.

...considering The Basic Emotion Theory - the idea that certain emotions are universal, innate and hardwired into our brains. Everyone, everywhere, apparently knows joy, sadness, anger, fear and disgust. We all think we can recognise these emotions in the faces of loved ones and strangers, friends and foes.

Hardwired ?

Then there is the Universal Language Theory - Universality assumptions...

Universal human rights ?
