Wherever you go and wherever you look you will find symbols – in the form of words, sounds, gestures, ideas or images – they are everywhere. Symbols are used to convey a particular meaning while saving on space or time. For example, everyone is familiar with the fact that a red octagon means STOP and that a tick means that something is correct or has been done well. But have you ever thought about the meaning behind some of the world’s most famous and most recognisable symbols, such as the peace sign, evil eye or the swastika?
1. Professor Dennett does not believe in the "hard" problem of consciousness as he believes that any aspect of it that is based in reality will have a scientific basis. The issue is that many people see the aspects of consciousness that there is a scientific basis as not real consciousness; which can actually be seen in the comments on that very video. As different pieces of consciousness become explainable, the definition in people's minds seems to change. I agree with him in the fact that the hard problem of consciousness does not exist.
Symbolism is manifested in many ways that are recognizable. Usually, it is a material reminder of something, but can also be a ritual, an action, repetitive words, etc. An example of a material symbol might be the small flag that is worn on the lapel of public officials.
“A stoic is a person who is seemingly indifferent to or unaffected by joy, grief, pleasure, or pain.” One who is not touched by the outside world, seemingly to live inside themselves, always thinking that today might be the last. Stoics detach themselves from things of this world, including objects, people, and to a certain extent, their own lives. In Meditations by Marcus Aurelius and The Discourses by Epictetus, the rules of stoicism are defined: learn to deny feelings, respect oneself and nature, and detach oneself from the useless things of this world.
1. Feelings are the sensations we get in any parts of our body. These sensations can be body sensations such as touch or cold whereas emotions are our reactions or outward behavior towards various things that happen to us. They are short-lived feelings that originate from recognized sources (Lombardo, n.d.). Suppose I work in a factory and got burnt by acid at work today, I would instantly feel pain but after a while become angry as a reaction to the pain from the acid burn.
Being a human is very unique. The television show Grey's Anatomy is a great example of human experiences. Some of these examples include life and deaths, emotions, and personal growth. The show is a perfect example of for those three things. These examples happen to everyone and each person goes through them at one point in their life.
German scholars from the nineteenth century translated ancient Indian texts when they noticed similarities between their own language and Sanskrit. They believed that Indians and Germans shared common ancestry, known as the Aryans. German poet Guido von List misinterpreted this information and proposed to use the symbol for all anti- Semitic organizations. Adolf Hitler, an artist by profession, admired the artistry of the swastika. When he joined politics in 1919, he adopted it as the official symbol for the National Socialist Party.
Symbols are physical objects that manifest deeper concepts through attributes of that object. In culture, symbols are heavily used for religious or commercial purposes. Specifically, the entire United States economy relies on the promise of the dollar, a piece of paper, that symbolises monetary worth throughout the nation. Symbols are powerful tools that many authors use to demonstrate connections between foil characters and events that shape protagonists. In Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, symbols are used to portray leaders and important events that guide Pip, a simple boy from the marshes who becomes so much more.
This article tells me about how music does affect human experience more critically about how it feels and what motivates people.

It is difficult to tell love. It is difficult to explain how it feels when wallowing in supreme eudaimonia known as love. It is a feeling that has been told many—by legends, by scribes, by pious, by philosopher, by artists and also by rationales—in many forms. In form of words, in music, in art and in other different forms that suits an individual.
