Nature vs Nature - Psychology by tookie23 on January 27th, 2011, 5:48 am
What is human development?
Human development is the advancement of our consciousness & potential as a species. I think throughout human development we learn to take the ideals of those whom we would like to be close to us. We also should develop to a state in which we can provide a state of stability for ourselves.
Nature Vs Nurture
What roles do they play?
Recently I studied the physiological matter that makes up humans, I wanted to understand the roles Nature and nurture took in our character build up, and while I may be unable to offer an absolute definition I did come up with a theory.
I believe there are a lot of hereditary things programmed into our brain that will not shine through unless exposure to certain experiences happens. There are certainly exceptions to this rule especially when you look at deeper psychological issues such as schizophrenia and multi personality disorder. I do know that nature plays at least some roll in...

Progress on cell: Phase 2: Glycoproteins by caters on November 14th, 2013, 5:42 pm
I have now reaserched the glycoproteins in every cell. Now all I have to do is find the DNA sequences for each protein. That should be easy since they are all online.

pilot-- about me by nitman118 on November 5th, 2012, 2:31 pm
Well, this is my very first post and to be frank i don’t know how things work around here, I will gradually talk about random stuff and maybe work around and weave my past along with it. So what is happening now? Well, I have my English exam tomorrow and here i am blogging this late at night (which by the way is not a new experience for me since i have pulled off quite a number of all nighters before too),and i am almost sure to mess my paper tomorrow and maybe the next ones too ( which again is not something exclusive for me, since i have never been the shiniest of my lot). To be honest, i had not thought of penning down my thoughts before. But i don’t know why for the past couple of weeks i am being plagued by the emptiness and hollowness inside me, and the only way of easing my anxiety was by writing, apparently it turns out that writing is my salvation. Writing gives me a sort of satisfaction, gives me peace. I am not trying to be too philosophical or something,it is just how i fee...

Advy observes a virus to see what it is doing and what its consciousness is like. "Maybe the key to the universe is found in this virus, this piece of genetic code." I don't know how, maybe Advy is a free floating mind, with no matter, that can see anything and any one's consciousness.
Philosophy and plea of a virus
What is my purpose? All I do is make mistakes nobody wants me around. Sometimes I think the gods do not even know I exist. The gods are trying to kill me. Their body does not want me around, why won't those white blood cells leave me alone. I thought that more of my kind was a good thing, but it destroys other life in the process. I must replicate, my DNA must live on through the ages. What else can I do?Please gods, if you can hear me, I am afraid, new anti-viral drugs are being developed to chain me up, soon I will be no more. I don't want to go to prison, unless I can be and learn there. There...

The Possibility of Aesthetic Realism – Phillip Pettit by Zin5ki on March 8th, 2011, 5:55 pm
(From Pleasure, Preference and Value).

The suggestion that aesthetic properties can be seen, in a realistic fashion, as both essentially perceptual and perceptually elusive is made in an innocuous fashion here. Pettit outlines the notion of positioning an artwork amongst a varying set of others to overcome the obstacle posed to the realist by these two criteria, and nips at the bud an immediate anti-realist objection to this claim by showing why such positionings are constrained in specific ways.

Our leanings towards a realist account of aesthetic properties, perhaps in my case restricted to the non-evaluative (but nonetheless distinctly aesthetic) ones, is well-served by Pettit’s overview.

Nevertheless, what is not presented is a refutation of anti-realism, as the essay’s title may suggest.

It is not beyond plausibility that the construction of both the positioning in which works can be perceived ‘within’ a refer...
