Questions to ponder
1. Why am I me, rather than someone else? (this question does not stop at the writer- it is for everyone to ponder)
This question has been bugging me lately and I find it very intriguing. What is consciousness? The more you think about it, the more you realise that this is not a question of science, but a question of philosophy. Anyone like to have a go?
2. Is the glass half full or half empty? Or are these descriptions an example of the way language cannot capture truth in its objective form?
3. Is there really such a thing as good and bad or are these just meanings that we assign to things in order to understand them better?
