Culture is the passing of non-genetical information (knowledge, belief, art, law, morals, custom) to the next generation, regarding human phenomena; within a group of people (society); a well-organized unity divided into two fundamental aspects—a body of artifacts and a system of interpretation & action.
“Technology shapes culture”
Humans are a species characterized by the constant search for progress. From the hand to the tool and to the digital. Technology coexists to improve the process of the further development of culture’s body of artifacts and the system upon which we interact with.
Progress is not exempt, and it must work under dogma of the categorical imperative. It is far from obvious that most of the time this is not the case, as the others in the axiom are mistaken by other humans, instead of nature’s suchness from the eyes of the interpreter.
Inspiration comes in many shapes and forms; colors and odors, tones, and tastes. In other words, one can find inspiration everywhere — Yet, it is not that simple. Being able to find inspiration resides in one's ability to submit to an experience with nature.
“Nature is The Real, and it is also reality; the way things are and the way we understand them.”
To submit to nature is to let it befall upon us; strike us, come over us, overwhelm and transform us.
When practicing a pedagogic approach, cultural entities must teach the value of understanding the traces of culture, yet preaching that there is no other way to live but forwards. We must utilize technology to generate cultural artifacts attuned with nature and create conscious systems of action and interpretation.
