History, culturology, and philosophy usually study the history of ideas, attitudes, beliefs or other achievements of the civilization process, such as scientific and technical discoveries. On the contrary, geographers and ethnographers offer to draw attention to the landscapes and natural factors, which is the condition for the survival of ethnic groups. With the aim of connecting these approaches, you can use the concept of "cultural landscapes" that add up as products of spiritual creativity in specific natural and climatic conditions, and is mediated by social, political, еconomical and technological developments of the process of civilization. This raises the question of how to "external factors", such as the natural Wednesday, forms the internal-subjective reality (mentality) people? Today this problem has been observed in neuroscience. How to influence available measurable processes in the brain on the so-called "qualia", i.e., directly facing the State of consciousness. Most likely, you need to refrain from joyful speeches in the style of a geographical, economic and biological ("brain") determinism. There is no denying the influence of external factors, it should be borne in mind that they define human consciousness very indirectly and more often than not just his simple acts.
