    The road is not mimicking you or anyone else when you drive within its lines. There are several ways to enter words into a processor, but it is a benign and allowed influence that you use a QWERTY keyboard in english.

    The ways we are influenced _are_ the workings of culture. Mimicry is only a piece of a facet of two of the players, and is supplied from nature, as are minds and language and society and the other attributes of the human.
