A while ago someone said to me that they cant help talking about Seattle and region but they dont think it makes a difference to them when they sit down with a blank piece of paper. For me, on the other hand, this my understanding of my environment makes a difference when I go to the store to pick up a quart of milk.
When humanity escaped the African savannah, it developed the need to understand its environment. This awareness was built by collective gathering of environment data in the construction of a conceptual model of their environment. In the similar way, social interaction between people depends on a situational model. Both of these models, environmental and situational, are combined into a regional model, which encompasses environmental and social narratives.
