    No need to 'fit' things in, then.

    But where goes all the additional info go needed to perform such a cultural action !? Some additional info will be needed to perform the cultural action like it should be, you need contextual background information to perform a cultural action correctly.

    And what kind of adjustment is needed !? What stays and what is left behind !? You give an enormous ' affective ' power to the brain/ mind. I like that, but where does this power gets its info to get its motor running, all the time every time....
