Animals And Humans 1. There is an enormous different between the life of humans and other animals. First of all, humans are clearly at the top of significance for the simple reason that they are at the top of food chain. This is what allows people to dictate society.
Combine this with the fact that humans have the ability to reason, and it is clear that people have more of a significance. It is as simple as this, no other species as the ability to end the entire world with tools which they have created. The purpose of human life is to strive to your calling. Obviously, this is a vague and general statement.
That is because every single person lives their lives in a different light. A person has to live a life in which they can look upon their dead body and say, “Yeah, I did live a life that I accomplished something.” I have not found my calling yet. I do not know what my life is for yet. Until I do, I am striving for what is important to me now. Right now, I lead a goal oriented life.
I have certain goals for tennis, as well as school that are my priorities right now. Also, it is important to me to stay in touch with my family. Right now my life is not headed in any direction. But soon I hope to find my calling, and live my life down a path that I create and dictate myself, not a predetermined one.
2. I do not know what my beliefs are about God. I believe that there is something. I mean, all this “stuff” of life just seems to complex to just randomly appear.
There is just to much in life to be a product of formulas and science. Also, I know sometimes when a friend takes me to church and it is time to pray, something happens. I get a warm feeling inside and I am calmed. Is this just because the soothing music sounds nice? I dont know.
But where is God? He isnt in space. He isnt in the ocean. This is my problem in believing. And religious peoples explanation for this is that you need to have “faith.” This concept of faith just doesnt make sense to me. I guess my beliefs in science come into play.
3. Out of those three examples, the most real to me is the chair. I appreciate things I can understand. I know that because of the four legs, combines with the base of the chair, the wood serves as a functional chair. But the molecules? I dont understand all that. I mean, If I took chemistry I guess I could, but then again maybe not.
All it would take to discount all of our Science knowledge would be the discovery of aliens (of which I believe in). And as far as images and sensory go, those definitely are not real. This is because we have to interpret these things. And the way we interpret them is through past experiences, for this reason they do not seem to be able to be defined as”real” to me. 4.
To prove that I had a mind, I can only think of one thing to do. That would be to spell something in the ground bedding with my hands. To disprove the theorist, I would argue that I do have a mind. It is my mind which enables me to change society. It is the mind that makes people think differently.
5.Of coarse it is possible that only you are right. But, it is also possible that nobody knows the truth. After all, “The truth is out there.” 6. It is impossible to do. In fact sometimes I have this same fear in my mind.
To me the worst thing to possibly happen is for you to read a book, and to find out at the end that the entire thing was a dream. If I where to find out that my entire life was the mere product of someones dream, I would be very pissed off. 7.I really would not know what to say. I would tell them that I am a human being from Earth. On earth humans are the dominant and “superior” species. I would explain to the alien that on Earth, humans all have different talents and exceed at different things.
