If I ever decide to test you I'll let you know.

You'll fail.

In our rigidly binary world there are two kinds of people, winners and people like you.

I thought you were intelligent, you thought you were funny.

Seems we were both mistaken.

See that's where you're mistaken. I thought you were intelligent, now I just think you're funny.

Quote by H4T3BR33D3R
As callous as it is to say I dont give a shit about my culture, my race etc... I care about my friends, my family and myself. I dont believe in religion, I sont believe in karma or fate. I believe in working hard and playing hard and thats how I choose to define myself. Not some label that means nothing at the end of the day.


Do you think knowledge of ancestral history is important? No. If youre interested in it, cool.

Do you form your identity around nationality? Not at all, or else all I would do is speak broken english, sing karaoke or be a nanny.

Is your cultural or national history important to you?
No because I have 0 interest in it and you only live once. I wouls rather waste my time on things I actually care about.

Yeah, and like I'm talking about consciously making it a part of your identity. I think it's inevitable and really of no consequence to have some traditions and the like because of where you live or your heritage. Everyone does this, it's unavoidable. It can even be a fun or interesting thing to learn about. But choosing to actively continue and preserve activities, culture, etc. or make it a large part of your personhood because it's what your ancestors "were" seems silly.
I think that attitude in itself is cultural. A lot of stuff today is highly individualistic where our family and cultural groups are a collection of individuals, but many cultures take a very different approach where an individual is made through relationships with others. The only concrete example I have is kind of silly. Like, how all the people create identity in Homer's epics. A few Native communities I know do very similar things.

It's not that they preserve things simply because their ancestors did. Like, their concept of self is tied up in their relations with other people, including long gone ancestors. Of course it seems silly to you if you were raised in a radically different tradition of seeing yourself.

I respect the sentiment to appreciate how far the developed countries that we live in have come given the turmoils and crisis that frequently plagued them in their history. By being born into them, we are unknowingly profiting from the resolutions to those past struggles.

i'm not sure how chinese i am or how american i am, and i don't care to think about it much. i know that i'm pretty american in some ways, and i also have values that could be attributed to being asian, but i'm not going to place any importance on something i was born into.

i would feel the same way about family, but i also have a heart

Jung writes something about Eastern culture generally being more introverted, and Western culture (apart from Scandinavia I guess) as more extroverted, which is why we tend to value more extroverted traits in society (and things like American politicians smiling/showing teeth in pictures is more unheard of then in China for example)

Hm, yes this is very true. I suppose I should say I find the more individualistic manner of identity to be a form of culture to strive to and I think it is superior to the traditional way.

I'm sure that a compendium of ancient alchemists is compelling reading for you, but I wouldn't put too much faith in the functionality...

Agreed, but he was still highly influential (he's the reason we even have introversion/extroversion in colloquial use). And things like his archetypes/etc are pretty solidly backed by history. Still writes some insightful things about identity/culture.

This should answer all of your questions. Or none of them.

Why would you let anything define you? Culture is not important, practicing your scales and arpeggios is all that matters. You can dress up and act like whatever you want but it ain't gonna matter.

I don't really know anyone who's hella into being AMERICAN BITCH. That seems like more of a stereotype than anything. The identity I've always been more comfortable with is Californian. A lot of people I know feel that way too or just don't give a fuck.

I was born in the Philippines and lived there until I was seven. I've lived in the States since then and I feel very detached from my heritage. I never even think about it.
