    It would have helped if the Culture had used some sort of emblem or logo; but, pointlessly unhelpful and unrealistic to the last, the Culture refused to place its trust in symbols. To a large degree, the freedoms enjoyed by humans in the Culture are only available because Minds choose to provide them. Sociolinguistics Susan M. Even the main character of Consider Phlebas, an enemy of the Culture, ready to die to help in its downfall, is fluent in Marain and uses it with other non-Culture characters out of sheer convenience.

    However, the character of a Mind evolves as well, and Minds often change over the course of centuries, sometimes changing personality entirely. The high computing power of the Mind is apparently enabled by thought processes and electronics being constantly in hyperspace thus circumventing the light speed limit in computation. The Culture was every single individual human and machine in it, not one thing.

    That I should take language as my point of departure for dealing with culture results from my exposure to the behavioral and social sciences as an undergraduate student when I took courses in personality theory and in cultural anthropology concurrently. As Minds are living beings with curiosity, emotion and wishes of their own, such mobility is likely very important to most. The main difference between Minds and other extremely powerful artificial intelligences in fiction is that they are highly humanistic and benevolent. Typically they inhabit and act as the controllers of large-scale Culture hardware such as ships or space-based habitats. In Use of Weapons, a Culture warship uses its electromagnetic effectors to hack into a computer light years away.

Drones have full control of their auras and can display emotions they're not feeling or can switch their aura off. These usually and society book various types of Culture facilities: Orbital Hubs — A Culture Orbital is a smaller version of a ringworldwith large numbers of people living on the inside surface of them, in a planet-like environment.

Their intelligence is measured against that of an average and society book member of the Culture; a so-called "1. Minds do not end up in roles unsuited to them; an antisocial Mind simply would not volunteer to organise the care of thousands of humans, for example.

Just as it could not imprison itself with laws, impoverish itself with money or misguide itself with leaders, so it would not misrepresent itself with signs. Human members in the Culture setting vary in culture, colour and shape as in reality, and with possibly even further natural differences: in the novella The State of the Art, it is mentioned that a character "looks like a Yeti", and that there is variance among the Culture in minor details such as the number of toes or of joints on each finger.

Italics, bold, and underlining can be used for further emphasis if needed. Also, except for some mentions about a vote over the Idiran-Culture War, and the existence of a very small number of "Referrers" humans of especially acute reasoningfew biological entities are ever described as being involved in any high-level decisions.

As thus defined and envisagedculture covers a very wide area of human life and behaviour, and language is manifestly a part, probably the most important part, of it.

Stores — Minds of a quiet temperament run these asteroids, containing vast hangars, full of mothballed military ships or other equipment. Attitudes individual citizens have towards death are varied and have varied throughout the Culture's history.

It is often employed in the galaxy as a de facto lingua franca among people who don't share a language. Language examples Language examples and linguistic items within the main text should be in italics, with bolding for further emphasis However, a Mind can transfer its 'mind state' into and out of its ship 'body', and even switch roles entirely, becoming for example an Orbital Hub from a warship.

These can be broadly categorised into drones and Minds. On occasion groupings of two or three Minds may run a ship. Other variants include M8 through M16, which are encrypted by various degrees, and are typically used by the Contact Section.

The main difference between Minds and other extremely powerful artificial intelligences in fiction is that they are highly humanistic and benevolent. This would be an extremely slow process, comparable to the evolution of the different species themselves. Some citizens choose to forgo death altogether, although this is rarely done and is viewed as an eccentricity.

Finegan Eds. A culture spaceship is the Mind and vice versa; there are no different names for the two, and a spaceship without a Mind would be considered damaged or incomplete to the Culture.

Language and culture

The Mind in Consider Phlebas is also described as having internal power sources which function as back-up shield generators and space propulsion, and seeing the rational, safety-conscious thinking of Minds, it would be reasonable to assume that all Minds have such features, as well as a complement Language drones Language other remote sensors as also described.

Many of the Culture novels in fact contain characters from within or without the Culture wondering how far-reaching the Minds' dominance of the Culture is, and how much of the democratic process within it might in fact be a sham: subtly but very powerfully influenced by the Minds in much the same ways Contact and Special Circumstances influence other societies.

Also, by custom, as described in Excession, any artefact be it a tool or vessel above a certain capability level has to be given sentience. Some imitation is clearly involved, especially in infancy, in the learning process, but proportionately this is hardly significant.

Language - Language - Language and culture: It has been seen that language is much more than the external expression and communication of internal thoughts formulated independently of their verbalization. In demonstrating the inadequacy and inappropriateness of such a view of language, attention has already been drawn to the ways in which one’s native language is intimately and in all.
