An important element of deep culture is linguistic knowledge and the worldview that goes along with it. The associations of “wedding” that I have as an American come from a combination of the general associations of that word (a white dress, and so on) and my own personal experiences with weddings.

To study deep culture empirically, it’s not enough to look either inside ourselves or at the functioning of the brain.
