Next question: ownership of said 'space'... what percentile of the average person's headspace is 'branded'? What percentage is outright owned by someone else? Qualitatively, how much this cultural topology contributes to our own sense of well-being? Should we not be using our well-being to create our culture (are we stuck pursuing corporeal tokens rather the requisite skills necessary to create and impregnate our world with our own meanings?) Or is culture a type of residue? How much are we oblivious to how we are affected and thusly imbued with the want to own more of it ourselves (as an extension of the senses?) Memetically, I opine, we leak our values into/onto our surroundings, marinading the inanimate, finding our children rail against the values that ooze back out. Is this dysfunctional? How can we reclaim our space without upsetting (but, er, beneficiantly morphing) our conceptions of ownership? Is the will to do so a form of 'freedom'?
