Of course I can't; both within and between are necessary. But if you mean that cultural venue encompasses the between but not the within
(otherwise it means everything, and equally nothing - it loses specific meaning), then you must admit that storing this information so that events might prompt it to be accessed is a cognitive, internal, non- cultural-venue thing. So my counter-challenge is to explain how one can remember one's own birthday in the absence of a brain. If you afre as honest as I was, you must admit that you can't do so, either.
