That is not to say that culture can 't happen and sits within a mind....!
If there were enough similar performances going on in enough
individuals within a specific time and space, and if each of those perfor-
mances were driven in and by its/ their own momentum, than what
is than be defined as ' culture ' is just an ' average casting up ' of
what are at the bias " individual perceptions " of what is going on !
" the world appears, but it appears only to an " I " that thinks "_
" things are just what they are, without a problem, but also with-
out any perspective_ a rock is there but it has no world.
Therefor you must have a consciousness. Than and only there the
world can be there for YOU " ( Sartre)
That is what I mean, ' culture ' happens and sits in a mind, yours
and mine are different though similar, and thus ' ours ' culture
is different but similar. What we perceive as culture is our take
on culture and that can and will not be same as the many floa-
tin ' around me....' culture ' sits within my mind and it spreads
within like yours sits within your mind and spreads likewise.
