Culture Openmindedness Mega-Thread

59 posts in this topic

I'd like to make a thread that shares and explores exotic cultures around the world, in the spirit of raising our openmindedness to and appreciation of the rich cultural diversity beyond standard vanilla Western culture. There are many great examples to be shared.

Stuff like this:

I want to see examples here of exotic and weird cultural norms and habits.


You are God. You are Love. You are Infinity. You are Leo.

Highly recommend this channel. This guy travels mostly through former Soviet countries and it can really change your perspective on the people there. See how they survive throughout the day! Notice their mindset! Consider how their environment has made them the people they are. We wouldn't be able to do self-actualization work if we were born/living in places like these.

 

^ This one's gold hahah

Also a fantastic video:

Again, this guy has A LOT of eye-opening content. And it's very entertaining! Go check him out.


Enslavement by illusion is comfortable. It is the liberation by Truth that people fear.

The false dissolves when it is discovered.

But let's not turn this into a gross-out food thread. We've all seen those gross-out food videos. It's not really about exploring culture so much as shock value.

One thing I really like is finding little examples of two cultures that you wouldn't usually except to mix together coming together in a cool new hybrid culture. Here's an example of Jewish Ethiopians:

It shows me that cultures are more inter-connected than we assume and that absolute borders between identities don't exist. There's thousands of these unique hidden cultures around the world that don't fall easily into more mainstream categories of identification.
