When "the common good" of a society is regarded as something apart from and superior to the individual good of its members, it means that the good of some men takes precedence over the good of others, with those others consigned to the status of sacrificial animals. Aye Rand, Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal Abstract Architecture today tends to focus on making a single statement for a building, rather than on expressing the varied occupants of the building. When a building's image is more important than its users, this can be the correct decision. However, when the building is designed primarily for its occupants, such as with an apartment building, it does not logically fit that the building should have one single expression. This conformist,

These sensory signals have a large impact on our relationship and experience of an environment because they are able to physically and emotionally engage and connect us to the architecture. Although these types of sensorial qualities may not make or break the successfulness of architecture, they must remain of high importance because of their ability to reinforce an individual’s personal connection to a place. Juhani Pallasmaa, claims that our design culture has forgotten the importance of the senses in engaging our whole being- physical and emotional- in an architectural experience. This theory speaks to an experience that goes beyond a visual relationship between a person and architecture. In the architectural realm these nonvisual experiences become important in how our space is perceived, how it makes people feel and even perform.
Instructing our youth to learn cardinal directions will develop their strength of spatial orientation. This skill, developed through language, can even mold our reality into something that was previously not visible. In addition to revealing new concepts, the way we describe people and events can improve our memory. These descriptions also vary among languages, and our understanding of why speech varies can allow us to understand each other intimately. Languages that assign femininity or masculinity to inanimate objects has likely affected how our architecture was constructed.
For example, the primary motor cortex functions in the initiation and coordination of fine motor skills as well as postural coordination. Another example includes the supplemental motor area, which controls sequential movements. Other regions include the premotor cortex and the parietal lobe which both aid in creating movement. By studying the effects of brain plasticity, or the brain’s ability to be shaped or molded, on motor learning, researchers can apply these effects to physical therapy. The plasticity of the brain influences the motor learning ability of the individual.

Social code of standards is an ethical theory, in which each person is accountable for fulfilling one’s civic duty; the responsibility of each individual must benefit the community as a whole. It should be blended into one’s everyday actions/decisions, especially, ones that will have a profound effect on other people and/or the community. In a larger, group setting, code of social responsibility and ethics is applied within the same group as well as during interactions with another group or an individual.
