Shijima is a Reason, a powerful
inner philosophy that encompasses
a set of natural laws, based
and oneness, influenced by Buddhism and the concept of Nirvana. It is a world
of perfect harmony, where there is no 'self' whatsoever, and no passion to cause dissent, conflict and destruction. Individuality is eradicated, and replaced with a collective inner peace where everyone is equal to a god, all working together as cogs in the giant, stable machine
that is the Universe. This Reason is most
closely associated with the Law alignment of previous Shin Megami Tensei games.
