How do we, as a culture, define our differences with previous cultures. Do we define it by our use of technology? I don't think we can. There are cultures that have advanced technology, yet have similar cultures to their ancestors who didn't have such technology. I think we have to find something that shows motion, not advancement. To that end, I propose we use music. It appears to me, that music is the definition of culture. In other words, by sharing music, you share your culture. By blending music, you blend your culture. Furthermore, music is always changing and adapting. It blends the past into something completely new and unexpected. Music seems to define our progression. Music defines our culture. Explore that concept and let me know what you think.
