“The same logic applies to the fields of ideas, customs, myths and traditions we call culture. One can think of culture as a body of forces, similar to our biological nature, but one that is not confined, bounded by a biological cell wall. The survival of culture is dependent on its needs being met. Customs, myths and traditions, schooling, and most certainly parenting are all agents of this cultural imperative. Step outside of cultural norms and one immediately feels the weight of the entire culture pressuring conformity. Joseph Chilton Pearce’s book, The Biology of Transcendence is an exploration of the Bio-Cultural Conflict of these two mighty forces.”
