How to Make a Culture
There are millions of different cultures in the world. In every different place and in every new time period, there are distinct cultures. But even with these millions of different belief systems and ideals, its invaluable to have your own set of goals, values, and attitudes towards the world.
Realize what a culture is.Webster's dictionary defines culture as "the customary beliefs, social forms, and material traits of a racial, religious, or social group". Your culture is a distinct way of living and thinking that is based on where you live, your heritage, and your experiences.
Decide what ideals defineyou.Do you value honesty and family or courage and success?
Write a personal motto.Your motto should describe what your ideals are. It should define what you want your culture to stand for.
Write stories about your beliefs.The Bible often uses parables (short stories with a moral) to teach a lesson that applies to the reader's own life. Write stories that have morals that are similar to what your beliefs and ideals are.
Create your own language.While creating a full language is a big task, consider making up some slang words of your own. You can also consider borrowing words from other languages. For example, if you want to talk about your passion, you can call it your raison d'etre (a French phrase that means "reason to live").
Choose sources to influence your culture.Everybody is influenced by different things. Listen to music, read books, look at quotes, and talk to different people. If something really affects you, jot it down.
Learn about your heritage.Cultures are influenced by what they once were. A culture that was once comprised of slaves will be influenced by that history.
Be picky.Don't let outside opinions sway your ideas about what is right.
- Don't be afraid to borrow ideas from other cultures or people. There are millions of cultures, so its okay if yours isn't entirely original.
- A culture often grows and develops with time, so don't be afraid to let your ideals change.
- There's a fine line between a culture and a cult. People should identify with your culture because they want to, not because you force them.
- A culture is a powerful thing. Ideals, goals, and religion are can be very dividing.
