I, too, am human
I am the stranger not "normal" brother
I am judged for how I look
I am judged for how I act
But I can't control it
Everyone isn't the same or "normal"
but this doesn't stop me for being who I am
when someone looks at me with disgust
it won't bother me
because I know who I am
Im proud of who I am
they won't stop me for being me
They'll see how beautiful I am
They'll so how i'm the same as everyone else
and be ashamed
I, too, am human
This art piece was used to represent a community with members who share a common environment from chapter 16 in The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. The objects like the suitcase and the crown are metaphors for businessmen and kings. The lamp lights are used to represent night and day which contribute in the world. ALso there is a key showing in exact numbers the statistical details of how many grown-ups are on Earth.
In this image above The picture of the brain in the person is his mind and he is perceiving the image of a cloud, cotton candy, ect., which is perception.
What is existentialism according to Descartes? How does it relate to perceiving versus perception, thinking versus thought, or judging versus judgment?
The image the person is seeing can be many views of the image, for example a cloud or cotton candy, or something else. Many people will say it's a cold because that is how authority has taught us to draw clouds. So seeing it as a cloud doesn't mean it's a cloud. It can be an allusion or a dream. So, the fact that you are thinking about what it is, is called a perception. Using your senses doesn't mean that it is that image, but using your senses to think about what it means, is true, or an irrefutable truth. Outside clouds don't exactly look like that image. The idea that you are thinking about what it is means that it is what you are thinking about.
This Picture is supposed to symbolize the universal theme of exploration. To create this idea, we used yellow as a way to show maps and deserts. The green symbolizes the green lands and hills, while blue is for the blue windy skies and the ocean. The last part, black, has multiple blues pinks, grays, and galaxy like colors. As shown it is like the galaxy and it seems like the circular orbit is going into the outside of the picture and accompanied by the galaxy, it means endless possibility, endless chances for exploration.
What I think this quote means. (Part 2)
Know that I know more about this quote and philosophy I think it means you have to think to know what it is. For example, thinking that you are real means you are. So, him, Descartes, thinking about what he is means he is that. The fact that you are thinking means it is true, or an irrefutable truth.
Paragraph Explaining Project
A healthy, beautiful flower represents the idea of growth mindset, that the flower was able to overcome increasing heat, water shortage and be able to grow to be strong and beautiful. The wilting flower is a representation of the idea of fixed mindset. The flower was at it’s peak, but slowly it started to wilt and fall apart, but it can become beautiful. The small flower shows new beginnings, a start, in which it can decide to be beautiful or droop.
Mindset is the idea of using our failures to either improve our intelligence or make our intelligence stabilize. We can use this idea as a way to become smarter in ways we never really understood. A way that we can use mindset is by using our failures as a way of pushing through a surface of obstacles. This is what we would call Growth Mindset. However, we can use our failures as an excuse, saying that we are limited to our knowledge, but saying that we can no longer become better once we have reached failure. Overtime, we can actually learn to become smarter, increasing our intellect. Our brain capacity isn’t just measured by IQ’s or tests, but also by our state of mind. The GATE icon for over time is a great way of explaining how our intelligence is not something we are born with, but something that grows as days, years, maybe even decades, pass by. Even now, the world is learning from failures, but also restraining itself from it. “The key, she found, isn’t ability; it’s whether you look at ability as something inherent that needs to be demonstrated or as something that can be developed,”says Carol Dweck in her 2007 study on mindset. This means that mindset isn’t only about ability, but about the way you use that ability to either make it stronger and greater or make it weaken and wilt.
The contribution of failures can lead to many successes. One example is a flower. It takes time to grow, but to be able to grow strong, you also need to test out different soils and foods to realize what will make it stronger. It’s going to go through many soils and foods that are rubbish, but in the end, it will find something nourishing to grow off of. As stated by Carol Dweck, ”For example, studies on different kinds of praise have shown that telling children they are smart encourages a fixed mindset, whereas praising hard work and effort cultivates a growth mindset.” The previous statement talks about the way that teachers can also, in some way, be a contribution to the manner a person uses that mindset. According to a video on Growth Mindset, posted by Infobundl, the brain is like a muscle, so the augmentation of other people and how much stress is thrust onto the brain, the more powerful it becomes. The brain doesn’t only become smarter over time, but the people who contribute to it either put the brain and its owner into either a state of complete growth mindset, or utter fixed mindset.
What does this quote mean to me?
In my opinion, I think this quote means that whatever I think I am will eventually be me. So, If I think positive about myself, like saying I am very talented with the violin, eventually I will be because I am putting my mind to it. And, it doesn't matter what other people think of me because I can be anything I think I can be. An example of what I think the quote means is when I kept thinking positive last year that I will be in honors this year because I kept putting my mind on it. Since I kept putting my mind on it I did get honors this year because I did my best in school. So in conclusion, to me the quote "I think, therefore I am" means that if I put my mind to something it can happen.
