There are only individuals except that there is a culture that forms from individual interactions. So there are cultural tendencies, but like the lemmings in a flock, each is an individual actor responding to individual stimuli.

- the Very Non Group (example: tharrin and Marc and Eye2 and I all obviously think exactly the same way...)


I had an epiphany the other day and want to share it here. Eye2 and I have gone back and forth on his stupidity(Big Grin) my inability to clearly communicate my thinking to him on this idea. He has said that there cannot be any such thing as "culture" as the world is made up of individuals, not groups. To anyone who has spent time in Minnesota and Mexico, the idea of culture should be obvious, even if we don't quite grasp how or why it works.

So the thought I had that may help Eye2 become Eye3 is that culture is like statistics. It may be statistically valid to say that X number of of a given population will be "Y" (geniuses, women, 7 feet tall... pick a thing) but simultaneously completely impossible to predict with ANY accuracy at all what one particular individual in this group will be.

So we can look at a group of people and see that they have a given culture, or reflect certain cultural traits, while at the same time not have a clue regarding the propensities of any given person.


Zat help any?
