@reinvented2012, In Aboriginal culture, there is still the distinction between Traditional living and the more adaptive to progressive living. I am not a Traditional Aboriginal, they live off the land, pretty much isolated from technology and integrated communities. There should be plenty of research material on not just our history and how we have responded to the changes over the last couple of centuries, but there should also be a number of cultural sources to review. Just look around with key word searches.
I am starting to think that culture is recognisable by the way it inspires you; specifically in positive ways, ideas that give you joy and compassion. This does not exclude some factors of religion, certain things found in religion can affect people like this, but the distinction is between the intellectual and what is beyond that, a nature that exists without all these ideas to confuse it.
