Instead, it uses the brain as a medium in order to receive indirect communication from the mind. The mind is the “brains of the operation”, and the brain serves to connect the mind to the physical realm. Again, there is no way to actually physically measure the mind that substance dualism speaks of. Since this is the case, it is very possible that the mind is actually the soul. The soul is a popular belief amongst modern society as well as in past societies throughout history.
Reality is an abstract thought. The question has been raised, can a person be certain of reality or is it mealy and illusion? Is it possible to be certain of anything? These complex issues have been carefully examined by philosophers. Some question if a parallel or alternative world.
While Aristotle, did not believe Plato’s thinking of the Forms, his thinking was that the soul is not made of a form of objects that that’s on the shape of a material thing, but consists of the same higher substance or spiritual being in his metaphysics theological thinking. For Aristotle, the world beyond is where the physical immortal substance exists, and is developed through the belief that there is a higher being that gives us our soul. Based on Aristotle theories on human development, he has played a major role in bioethics. Bioethics is another branch of philosophy and biology, the study of living things. In reference to James Fieser from applied ethics, “Aristotle held a position now called delayed hominization: human fetuses only gradually acquire their souls, and in the early stages of pregnancy the fetus is not fully human”.
Many philosophers believe that there are reasons to demonstrate the God does exist through arguments. There are three main types of arguments that explain the existence of God. These include Cosmological, Teleological, and Ontological, which are all traditional arguments. There are two groups that divide the arguments “An a posteriori argument is based on premises that can be known only by means of experience of the world (e.g., that there is a world, that events have causes, and so forth). An a priori argument, on the other hand, rests on premises that can be known to be true independently of experience of the world (Pojman 19).
You would think it’s about a huge monster destroying everything, but really it’s about captivity which was great thriller that makes me want to see it again, but others would be disappointed in it. It felt rushed and came very fast. It was one of those movies that had me like “woe” which was fine and it worked for me, but also it made me think about the sounds and clues the characters gave out. This could’ve been a first viewing problem like you’re watching the movie the first time and you don’t know what to expect and you what’s the story is building to and you got to process it and really think about it, but led me into appreciating it more. I love the fact that you don’t know anything, but it creates this expectation in you that could lead you into not liking it, because you create these crazy expectations in your head, because you really don’t know what to expect from this film.
Humor is another factor director Richard Kelly uses to his advantage to break through the science fiction genre. The comedy doesn’t come from usual break-the-suspense humor and laughs occur sporadically throughout the film. Sufficiently employing the theme of first-love and humor in the film, Kelly successfully fulfills the persona of a coming of age film most science fiction movies regretfully leave
Dahl’s choice of the phrases ‘unusual thing’ and ‘became absolutely motionless’ create suspense. The first phrase ‘unusual thing’ hints at a vague unfamiliar element in the domestic scene that makes the readers uncomfortable. The second phrase hyperbolises Patrick’s unmoving state, like that of a corpse. This unresponsiveness gives him a mechanical and slightly creepy air. This breeds a sense of foreboding and suspense in the reader to discover why Patrick is behaving as such.
There are other metaphors which can be extrapolated from the story as the shadows of the cave represent the objects in the world of the senses and how they are not the true essence of the idea of the object casting the shadow but merely imitations. The same type of metaphor is used with comparing the light that emanates from the fire, being an inferior representation of the light of the sun. (B.C.Burt
This relates to the “The Allegory of the Cave”, because Neo lived in ignorance his whole life not knowing his reality was not the only one. In The Matrix, Morpheus and his team find in the matrix Neo and help him escape the agents to safety. Morpheus gives Neo a choice, come with him into the real world or live in ignorance. The choice is simplified into blue pill and a red pill.
horror movies can become an addictive habit, especially those of the great Stephen King. From his first novel Carrie (1974) to his most recent collection of short stories, Everything’s Eventual: Five Dark Tales (2002), King’s perspective on all things scary still strikes terror in his readers. In 1982, Playboy featured King’s article, “Why We Crave Horror Movies,” in which he explains why he feels people are drawn to horror films. King’s use of humorous tone helps him convey his opinion in a casual manner; whereas, his use of figurative analogies and examples give him the support and credibility needed to present his opinion in an educated and influential way.
