The word “culture or cultural” originates or derives from the Latin word called Cultura; stemming from the word colere; which means to cultivate, (culture; being the different patterns of cultivated habits).
The word culture also means; To prepare somebody’s life, through the foods he/she eats, the teachings he listens to, the music, dance, entertainment and arts that excites one’s soul, so that you may transform him/her into a desired genetic trait or character.
To structure a person’s character or behavior into an identity (DNA genetic traits) that relates him or her to a given custom, religion or tradition.
The scientific perception towards the human behavior:
Alfred Kroeber and Clyde Kluckhohn the Anthropologists, came to a conclusion after the study of human behaviors in natural science and social science, that the behaviors of human beings are a result of cultivated habits.
Every human behaviour is a result or reflection of a cultural trait:
In the different cultures which makes up the world’s population, the behaviors and characteristics of the human beings are cultivated, designed, generated, improved, trained, fostered, and educated into the lives of the people,
through their own traditional food, traditional art, music, dance, and drama.
In this act of cultivation also the traditional of oral stories, traditional of symbols (signs) and religious beliefs is used to govern the traits of people’s DNA or culture.
Every human being on the earth belongs to a certain given culture or cultivated behaviours and beliefs that are passed down from the DNA of his ancestors.
The word culture means; the implanted or inherited characteristics of the ancestors, which are found in a person’s natural behaviour, bloodline and DNA traits.
