I think "culture" is detemined by "environment" in the end. If you have people living in large modern cities with both wealth and the internet you will end-up with a "modern urban electronic upper-middle-class culture" that is essentially similar anywhere in the world. Eventually life in New York or Beijing or Cairo will become much the same. Old traditions will persist only in forms that do not interfere with "modern life". There will eventually be one basic human culture with only minor variations. That will be good because it will end wars.
What's on your mind...

Learning happens when you test the statements and claims against reality, and to do that you would have to move your bum to the Far East and immerse yourself in the maelstrom that is contemporary China.


Obviously that would be the best way to learn about it.  But if you can't learn something the best way, that doesn't mean you can't try to learn at all.
