It is interesting sometimes to imagine how social culture and its supposed “originator” correlate with each other. It needs some nerves to thread the tedious way comparing robust cultural practices from the original events that inspired them. In traditional paradigm wherein ontology must always precede practice, a foundation for what we are doing should always be available as its legitimizer. This implies that we could not have cultural practices just because people agreed to have it. We always inquire on the efficient cause, factual or fictional, that gave birth to social culture.
