The unit of cultural transmission is the performance. Not some
unidentified, unfindable, unexplained, something in the mind that
somehow precedes it.
I am not denying, separating, or in any way unrelating- in point of
fact, I am insisting upon the conjoining of- the performer, the
observer, and the time/space of performance. All of these are the
performance. Perhaps _your_ definition of performance is what is
preventing you from understanding. So, let's have it.
