Purpose of the residency

Ritual is a shifting signifier and a type of technology. We always need it to give us psychological hints and certain authentication, which allow us to go beyond our limitations. The formats of ritual in Asia area are very diverse,and those common cultural elements of humanity might be the common origins in much more earlier times. Ancient rituals as such can also be traced in today's Japan, and have even been preserved more completely and ritually in todays' social scenes. I want to find out the reasons and backgrounds of the interrelation between traditional rituals and contemporary creations.
