I too am a Human
I am another person
Who is quite different from the others
When those who look alike come
They exclude me from what they are doing
But I still have fun,
And grow strong,
When they try to exclude me again
I will stand my ground
And they will let me join
And see how wrong they were
In the end, we are all human
The little prince shown is trying to get an answer for he is lost, thus making those black lines. When the Little Prince receives his answer, the lines turn white representing his knowledge. Plus, the world around him is in a rainbow color and quite simple with just lines of color. But the Little Princes mind is in a scramble of colors, meaning he thinks differently from the world.
Your perceptions are not irrefutable truths. What you see, hear, feel, almost anything having to do with senses can be proven wrong. What you think you see might not be it. What you think you smell might be something different. What you think
you feel might be another thing. But what we all know that can't be proven wrong is the ability to think. You might not think what others think that odor is, but at least you can guess like others using your mind. The philosopher Rene Descartes came up with this concept. He knew what he thought would be different compared to others and questioned, what If we don't exist as what we see might be fake as we can never tell due to the fact everyone sees everything differently. But then Descartes thought that since we think, we exist. Even though we think differently, we still use our minds. So the Descartes came up with the quote, "I think, therefore I am."
This painting represents change. There are many different colors and each color at some point changes into another color. Then the different colors change into a green ball with different types of green blending in with each other and with scribles of colors that also change. Then that green ball changes into what it was before.
Blog post #4 (accordingly) Learning what the quote "I think, therefore I am" means vs what I thought it ment
When looking back at what I wrote before when trying interpret the quote "I think think, therefore I am" I was close when puting it in my words, but completely missed on my explanation. What the actual quote means is that everything you see,hear, touch, and imagin might not be real. But what is real is what you think about it. Your mind is the only thing proving your existance and not saying that your in a dream as when you dream, you can't really think, you just do whats going on. And what I wrote before is this, "But the one meaning that I (for some reason) think is most likely is that he knows he thinks for himself, so he exists." which is kind of correct because Descartes knows he is thinking so therefore he does exist.
Well the quote "I think, therefore I am" has many meanings, for example: It might be a quote for motivation like think of the things you want to do and do them. It can be used to describe people and how they are like people think differently and that determines who they are. But the one meaning that I (for some reason) think is most likely is that he knows he thinks for himself, so he exists. You might say "Well, what does that mean?" Well if you think for your own and make up ideas on your own, you exist as your own person If you don't think for yourself, you are basically the person who thinks for you and don't exist as a different person. If we didn't think for ourselves and went along with others, we will most likely still be in the stone age or a time period way before and nothing we know would exist. But we don't follow the ideas that one person has, we follow our own. And that makes us who we are.
