: : No! You are talking about the cache of transference. I may catch a lot of flak for this but the dominant thrust to collect ethnographic material is to gather the essence of an alien life and by transference experience a slice of that existence. It is caused by an internal poverty which our civilization has imparted to us. We are little more than hamsters on a wheel and we of course seek first to deny this then to transfer something better to ourselves. We ruggies are really druggies without the exogenous molecules.
