365 Writing Prompts: Simply the best

Nasa is building a new Voyager spacecraft that will carry the best modern human culture what belongs on board?

The term “culture” has two meanings(1) the evolved human capacity to classify and represent with symbols and to act creatively , and(2) the distinct ways that people living in different parts of the world acted creatively and classified or represented their experiences.

Distinctions are currently made between the physical artifacts created by society , its so called material culture and everything else, including the intangibles such as language, customs etc. that are the main referent of the term “culture.”

Language and culture both emerged as a means of using symbols to construct social identity and maintain coherence within a social group too large to rely exclusively on the pre-human ways of building a community.

In that new Voyager, there will be one person representing his/her language, there will be chefs from different cultures, and fashion designers representing different  countries of the world.

We must have assistants of the chefs.

We’ll need musicians and their musical instruments,  to entertain the passengers.
