Cultural variation of wholeness
In human society, the wholeness of a given part of space always includes the cultural milieu.
[The wholeness] W — that is, the particular system of centers — governs and defines the cultural variation which we experience in the world.
Embodied cognition identifies many activities that are universal across cultures. But it also acknowledges cultural differences. It all comes together: perhaps here also 90% are universal and 10% specific to local culture? Then we would really have lots to agree on. But these things evade our consciousness so well that we miss them and primarily see the differences.
