Intro into the Accultured

This is a portal through which I can acculture others through my own experiences and findings.

Acculturation: acculturation

Pronunciation [uh-kuhl-chuh-rey-shuhn]


1. the process of adopting the cultural traits or social patterns of another group.

2. the result of this process.


1875–80, Americanism; ac- + culture + -ation Unabridged

Based on the Random House Dictionary, © Random House, Inc. 2009.

In this beginning it is best to start with a background of the mind which is putting these ideas to the net. Quick synopsis of this accultured mind with a little word play:

Young - New to this world and still learning something new everyday.
Old - learn from the past, those of the elders, those of the ancients, so to better the future.
Broad - a narrow mind is a narrow sight and walking down a rugged path with narrow vision is dangerous.
Optomistic - life is too boring be negative hope is what makes the world go around.
Antithetic - being contrary helps to see the weaknesses in order to make it stronger.
Unabridged - given all it has needed from birth to grow as needed and do as required.
Living - that which ceases to grow dies and the same goes with the mind.

I hope to grow as an individual and grow this portal at the same time. The world is going through an interesting era now and it is important to learn oneself in the new cultures of this global entity that is forming from the many corners of the planet.

Acculturation is not just a way of learning a new culture, but a way of evolving in this present human condition. If humans are created in God's image then by nature we revel in creation and knowing all that exists in the world. In this instance by learning the world we humans learn ourselves and become a little closer to the heavens and life infinite.
