PerlMonks has a motif/theme that plays off of Western (Christian) and Eastern monasteries. Is it odd then that some people play off of that theme as well? I happen to play pencil and paper role-playing games (e.g. Heroes of Rokugan which uses the Legend of the Five Rings role-playing system) so that behavior feels natural to me. I suspect actors and actresses would feel the same way.
We even embody some of those ideals, such as being more concerned with enlightenment -- either for ourselves or helping others achieve it -- than say experience points and leveling up. See XP problem for an example.
