A twitter conversation on the subject of memes made me think about culture.
Most simple things at once become very complicated when we watch better.
Culture is not a simple subject. And when we look at it better it will be more complicated.
“Culture” is a highly abstract word used as if everyone knows what it means. But the concept of Culture has a lot of very different definitions. I will try to think about the notion culture.
In the little village where I live we share a culture, we share some knowledge, some habits, we have a language in common. We could say we share the culture of our village. (Some are in the center of that village culture and some are on the edge of that culture)
But in my village do live people from very different cultures.
You could share a culture with a group of people and you could at the same moment belong to a different culture.
