While considering and conceptualising cultural identities of all possible domains and levels of generality, we can perceive the existence of an even more basic need to finally start thinking of the most general, the archetypically most deeply embeded - the cultural identity of our mother Earth. This is the demand of our responsibility before mankind, a demand which does not slightly imply the unification of other levels of identity. It might appear as too wide a demand, but perhaps precisely within the framework of mankind's common experience one could determine the true place and significance of all possible variations and contrasts of the entire multitude of particular and global cultures, which all have an undoubtable role in the anthropological understanding of the complexity of the universe of culture.
