EXECUTIVE SUMMARIES : CULTURAL DIFFUSION

BASICALLY OUR DEFINITION OF CULTURE REFERS TO SOURCE IDENTIFIABLE MORE OR LESS PERMANENT TRACES LEFT BY LIFE ORGANISMS IN "PURE NATURE".

THESE TRACES MAY BE CALLED PATTERNS OF CULTURE .

TRACES SUCH AS EAGLES NESTS, BEEHIVES AND ANT HILLS REMIND US OF THE WAY OF LIFE OF THESE SPECIES AS DO CAVE DRAWINGS, PYRAMIDS AND SKYSCRAPERS (OR IMAGES OF THESE TRACES WHEN THE ORIGINALS NO LONGER EXIST).

THUS A CULTURE CAN BE REGARDED AS A PRODUCT OF COPING BEHAVIOR OF AN ORGANISM WITH ITS NATURAL ENVIRONMENT AND ITS ELEMENTS ARE USUALLY MORE OR LESS TIME RESISTANT PASSING THEM ON TO FUTURE GENERATIONS WHICH CAN ANCHOR THEM IN THEIR MINDS AND BRAINS FOR INDIVIDUAL COPING BEHAVIOR WHEN REQUIRED.

IN ITS MOST ELEMENTARY FORM A SPECIFIC CULTURE WOULD BE RESTRICTED TO THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT WHERE IT ORIGINATED BUT IN THE COURSE OF TIME IT CAN SPREAD TO DIFFERENT AREA’S.

NOTABLY WHEN THESE PATTERNS OF COPING BEHAVIOR , THESE PATTERNS OF CULTURE, SPREAD TO LARGER AREA’S THEY MAY BECOME MODIFIED ONE REASON BEING THAT DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENTS MAY REQUIRE NEW FORMS OF COPING BEHAVIOR .

GIVEN ENOUGH TIME AND SPACE THIS MUST LOGICALLY RESULT IN PATTERNS OF CULTURE OF A CHARACTERISTIC NATURE IN DIFFERENT AREAS.

ORGANISMS MAY MOVE IN SPACE AND TIME, EITHER INDIVIDUALLY OR IN GROUPS, OBVIOUSLY CARRYING THEIR BRAINS AND MINDS WITH THEM THUS EXPOSING THEIR NEW ENVIRONMENTS INCLUDING ITS CULTURE TO THE TRAVELLERS PATTERNS OF CULTURE AND VISA VERSA .

THIS PROCESS IS OFTEN CALLED : CULTURAL DIFFUSION.

GIVEN THE CONSIDERABLE DIFFERENCES IN PLANETARY ENVIRONMENT, AT LEAST FROM A HUMAN POINT OF VIEW, IT IS ONLY NATURAL THAT VERY CONSIDERABLE DIFFERENCES IN PATTERNS OF CULTURE HAVE DEVELOPED OVER THE THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF YEARS OF DEVELOPMENT OF HUMAN CULTURE ON OUR PLANET WITH RESULTING DIFFERENCES IN PATTERNS OF CULTURE SUCH AS RELIGIONS AND (OFTEN RESULTING) SYSTEMS OF MORAL, LAW AND ORDER AS ONLY ONE EXAMPLE .

THIS MAY NOT HAVE BEEN A MAJOR PROBLEM IN THE THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF YEARS BEHIND US WHEN MOVING FROM ONE CULTURE TO ANOTHER WAS PRACTICALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE RELATIVELY FEW HUMANS INHABITING OUR PLANET IN THE PAST BUT A WORLD UNDER GLOBALIZATION WITH BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF INHABITANTS WHICH COULD COMMUNICATE WITH EACH OTHER BOTH VISUALLY AND WITH SPOKEN WORDS ON AN INSTANT AND CONTINUOUS BASIS INCLUDING EXCHANGE OF THEIR X-RAYED BRAIN STRUCTURE, PERSONALITY AND WEALTH PROFILES AND THE POSSIBILITY TO PHYSICALLY REACH EACH OTHER WITHIN A DAY IS ANOTHER MATTER

AND . . . THIS HAS ONLY JUST BEGUN . . .
