However, this ideology can be transmitted without being internalized: we can learn about pre-Socratic philosophy without becoming fifth-century Greeks.
This relative autonomy reflects the fact that elements of culture can circulate, be integrated into other cultures, without transforming them from top to bottom.
Also, new traditions can be created over time. Suppose two people start something every year, over the years it will become a family tradition and it can even be passed on to future generations.
