    So you, and only you, insist.

    What then is memory? Some 'alternative' storage system?

    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.
