You are unique

Let's think

Appreciate your uniqueness: you are the first person to ever have your exact genes and experiences.

We all know that every person is special and different, but have you ever considered the full extent of what exactly that means? You are special not only because of your unique thoughts but also because of your biology and your environment.
First of all, you are the first person ever to be born with your exact genetic makeup. Throughout the entirety of human evolution, there have been billions of different genetic permutations that have produced billions of different humans. In this unimaginably long genetic history, you are the first instance of your specific combination of genes. This makes you unique biologically, but also psychologically, because the makeup of your brain is also completely new and unique.
In fact, scientists have found that vast psychological and biological differences can even occur between identical twins.

Frame of Reference

Let's think

Me: Okay let me tell you about the frame of reference, you can’t even imagine how big this universe is

Respondent 1: I am hungry, do you have a piece of bread?

Me: Think, you ignorant, there are millions of galaxies, and do you know a galaxy contains billions of stars.

Respondent 2: I am penny less, I need some shelter for my kids who are exposed to intense cold, could these billions be converted to some money?

Me: No, no, no you fool, try to understand, Billions and billions of these stars are arranged into galaxies and our galaxy is only one of many trillions of galaxies.

Respondent 3: Ah dear, you are a bit late, I received diagnosis of terminal cancer yesterday, it’s too late for me to think and understand that now.

Me: O dear, I sympathize, all I was trying to say was that our planet…

Sources of knowledge

Let's think

We humans have three faculties of our self that we use to gain knowledge. One is experimentation, touch the fire and learn that it burns, second is reasoning for example if the bread satisfied my hunger than it would be reasonable to think that it would do the same again, the third and most interesting is intuition for example two plus two is always four, Euclid rules of triangles and Einstein’s laws of relativity are all correct but has anyone ever seen a triangle showing its rules to us in nature, it’s all a priori decided and we explore them getting a final confirmation from our intuition that (intuition) in turn is universal and the discoveries and laws are all active in the universe indiscriminate. Reasoning and experience seem to be the tools to present things to intuition and get a confirmation or refusal but the connection of intuition with…

Let’s turn a page in the book of Sociology: Subject is Symbolic Interactionism

Let's think

Herbert Blumer described Symbolic Interactionism as ”

People act toward things based on the meaning those things have for them, and these meanings are derived from social interaction and modified through interpretation.[2]

Sociologists working in this tradition have researched a wide range of topics using a variety of research methods. However, the majority of interactionist research uses qualitative research techniques, like participant observation, to study aspects of (1) social interaction and/or (2) individual selves. ”

(The above excerpt is taken from Wikipedia)

Attending the Shrines, Temples and Holy places is common in Subcontinent. The practice is not religion specific. A wide range of religious schools follow similar practices.

“Tying a Knot” is one of those common practices that again is carried out in various places that are considered Holy by followers of various religions.

I however had not seen this ritual being practiced in Christianity until my recent…

Identity

Let's think

Nothing confuses me more than trying to comprehend the usage of word “We” by one of my friends. At times he uses it to refer to all the Muslims. What he means is’ We’ as opposed to Non-Muslims. He refers to ‘We’ stating that we have ruled the world in the past. When asked that they were Turks and Arabs whilst we are Indians then he doesn’t like the argument. I told him that apparently (if genetics is correct) we the brown coloured have a common ancestor and if at all we use the word ‘We’ it needs to be appreciated that our ancestors are Hindu converted to Muslims and at some point down the line we need to own our past identity and our common heritage that we share with various other religions. I also told him that the believer polytheist seems closer to a believer of Abrahamic religion…

Be Sceptical

Let's think

It’s hard to have any in depth discussions on political and power forums. On media shows especially in such forums people have predetermined agendas and the the ultimate aim usually is to win the argument or conquer the opponent that has its own rewards for winner whether that be propagation of personal opinion or spread of political and power views. None the less understanding any subject matter or opinion in depth requires dedication and commitment. There are no short cuts. And learning a conduct/science/art or even opinion needs proper hard work for learning the very basics of matter in hand. You can understand a doctor’s opinion in a talk show but you need to remember that the doctor had spent a decade of her life (sometimes much more) to learn to make that opinion that still remains fallible and open to scrutiny and criticism as at the end of the…
