Family

Family

The word or idea of "family" is so universal and accepted it would almost seem that any discussion on it would have to be personal. I believe the idea of family, however, is quite a bit more complicated (or at least should be) than what it may seem.

Family is essentially just the blood connection between people, so it is basically the sharing of genetic material. Why is it then that we have such a large emotional connection to family? (Or at least the majority of people have or are expected to.)

The Architecture of Thought

The Architecture of Thought

It is human nature to try and understand our surroundings and in some way contribute to them, either to further our own existence or to help others in some way. Human curiosity is, I think, one of our most powerful attributes - the eternal need to search for more knowledge and to better understand our place in our environment. Now, that's the basis for science, as what science is constantly trying to do is discover how, why, when, and where things exist.

Faith

Faith

In order to even begin to discuss the idea of faith and what it means, we have to define it totally and definitively. The English word of faith just means you have a strong conviction, one way or the other, on a particular idea/person/entity. A more realistic understanding of the word and the idea that it represents, at least currently, is similar but is more specific. Faith is the belief in a concept that has zero proof at all.
