Can we have knowledge or beliefs which are independent of our culture?

Our culture plays a big role in the way we think etc. But can we obtain knowledge and beliefs which are independent of our culture?

    By the time we begin to ask questions and open our mind to learning; and when we put our imagination to good use, then we could know and believe in a way that is exclusive to us.

Its the era of globalization and I do not think that there is any reason to bound our knowledge and beliefs to only our society or culture.
