I feel like that is also what Voltaire was trying to satirize, the way we as humans sometimes for the most part don’t take responsibility for our own actions, we are always placing blame on something else rather than ourselves. In addition, we are always thinking about these what ifs and never doing sometimes and that is a problem. Being that we are so worried about irrelevant events, it deters us from what is actually
The complexity of the human psyche is a concept people still ponder the vast capabilities of. When different people interact there is always a change in behaviors depending on the environment and the people themselves. One can never truly predict how a person will behave in a situation until said person is actually tested. However, while one cannot predict the outcomes of people interacting, it is known that humans tend to act in ways that will benefit themselves. It is often debated that people are inherently egotistical, that we will always perform in a manner that will be beneficial to ourselves before we begin to take others’ needs into account.
The human brain is so complex and widspread that we all think differently. Everyones brain proccesses information differently and sometimes the material and rules are just to easy. Nonconformity is another way of responding to conformity because everyone thinks differently. The rules that are given dont always satisfy the needs of everyone. I know from personal experience that my brain doesnt always understand the material that is given.
It is symbolic of many long-held concerns about technology. First, being an artificially intelligent, it can think as well as, if not better than, any human. Second, its inner workings are not completely understood by his creators. With Hal, people have created a very powerful technology that they cannot fully control. When Hal begins to think on its own and deviate from the way in which it has been instructed, this is an expression of the fear many people held that our own technological advancement would come back to haunt us unexpected and unforeseen ways.
Adaption is often scary, and many people will tend to avoid it at all costs. Some people deny the need to adapt, even though it is apparent that adaption is eminent, because of fear of the unknown. The chained prisoners are indeed in denial and not willing to believe their fellow prisoners new found thought because, it goes against their already perceived
I agree with the idea no one person is the same, if we were to be the same, mentality wise, then everyone would just be like any other person. The argument, in my opinion, stands true, anyone can say they are a "good person" and demand the fair treatment of everyone but no one can truly know who 's a good person or not. The larger issue at hand here is that the fair people are treated unfairly, the unfair people see the fair people as those who can be used with no repercussions because they know well the fair people won 't retaliate or speak up. Granted, everyone is different and that 's what diversifies and separates people, some people may perceive the unfair people as fair and vice versa, which is where we run into the issue of who 's in the right and who has the say in what 's right and wrong. To say that one person 's way of treating someone is right is opinionated and most of the time incorrect.
Yeah, a lot of us (most of us) can find ourselves spending too much time checking our phones rather than being in the moment. However, there is a lack of sufficient evidence that technology is actually ruining our relationships. On the contrary, technology has given us an amazing amount of opportunities to form relationships with people we’d never have been able to meet prior and discuss prevalent issues with a wide array of voices.
History does not exist, only present, as past is all myth While history is written by humans, it is difficult to distinguish between right and wrong due to various factors. Human beings in all ages and places have always had different arguments and viewpoints towards the similar issues. To illustrate, historians cannot agree that a specific type of issues is the main aspect of the time and location as most of historians worked under power. Therefore, historians could not write the truth which can confront the power above them. Additionally, various triggers cause the historian to interpret the events in a way which serves their objective as they provide examples which adjusts their argument and neglect some other facts.
Oppression is a very serious issue with growing discourse. As time progresses, the way people are treated and the opinions they hold change. When the rights of a group of people change, it makes other people feel as though they’re missing out on chances those people are given access to. While this may be accurate in rare cases, it is difficult to argue strongly on the side of the people who have been, and still are, in positions of power. Discrimination is an entirely different realm than systematic oppression, and people who are in these positions of power would definitely never been able to experience these things.
Humans have been the dominant species for many years and over the course of history, human nature has never been fully understood due to the fact that there are major differences between how we function in the world compare to other species and we are still learning from it. Human nature is defined as the ability to think, feel, and act in this world (Merriam Webster Collegiate Dictionary, n.d.). Humans are selfish individuals because no matter how much they act; they want to fulfill their own interest. We blame nature for our problems because other actions, not necessarily our own, control us but in reality it is our own decisions that caused these actions. After reading “Apes in the Family” from Fran de Waal’s Our Inner Ape, humans are not meant to be selfish in nature but also possess empathy and compassion which allows us to form connections and cooperate with others.
