We’re waxing philosophical in our questions today:
- Can we ever experience anything objectively? Why or why not? (Now for the people who may not understand that idea, this is what objective means (definition wise): Something that is not influenced by personal feelings or opinions). I think we definitely can. I think sometimes, depending on the circumstances, it can be hard or easy. I think it also can depend on how you were brought up. Yeah, it can definitely done be done. I think at the moment, it’s a bit harder to do. I had a conversation with someone today where because Trump said he wasn’t aware of the “phone call”. Then it must be true. So I showed him a whole lot of articles showing where Trump lied, including one today that involved Apple. So he may not be the most objective when it comes to telling the truth.
- Do humans have a soul? Do animals have a soul? I think we do all have a soul. Including animals. I’m not necessarily religious, but I do believe we all have a soul.
- Why are people told to respect the dead? (example: “Don’t speak ill of the dead”) I actually have no idea. I’ve been around some really horrible people who’ve passed away, or like famous “paedophiles, murderers” etc. When they die, people suddenly have a bad word to say? I don’t understand it personally. My mama did teach me though, “when you’ve got nothing nice to say, say nothing at all” So while others may speak well, I just try not to say anything.
- Without using the names of specific people, discuss “the ideal” President or other world leader. Saying ‘anyone who is the exact opposite of a certain orange skinned creature’ is cheating. While (to me) that’s a true statement, there’s more depth to the question than to reduce it to one sentence. I honestly just miss seeing a kind leader. I see someone like Jacinda Arden and I can’t help but think “What went so wrong everywhere else?”
