    So, what we perceive as ' cultural evolution ' is due to changes not only of the cultural environment within but also due to our own per- ception of things !? Understandable, but does the ' proclaimed evolution ' of perfor- mances hasn 't a say in things !? Evolution within the cultural landscape is the result of ever chan- gin' performances of cultural/ social/... intercourse/ attempts and perceptions of those things, don 't you than not count in the changes to the performances themselves !? Performances of which I think have to have some neurological bias to be " performed "_ there has to be movement, will, urge, strive, commitment,........!?

    Just a question,
