The events that are depicted in Star Wars take place in a fictional galaxy “far, far away”, in which many species of various alien creatures, many of whom are humanoid, are depicted. Droids are also quite popular in the flicks and are typically produced in order to serve their owners. Space travel is of the norm, and the planets within the galaxy are in turn a part of one single galactic government. In the prequel trilogy, the galactic government is represented by the Galactic Republic, at the end of the prequel trilogy and through the entire original trilogy, the galactic government is known as the Galactic Empire, and during the sequel trilogy, the government is the New Republic. However, the most notable and foundational element of Star Wars is referred to as “the Force”. Continue reading
With all of this philosophical talk, I thought we could take a different step towards talking about the forces, and instead, talk about scientific forces.
Force is an external interaction, that, when acted upon an object, it results in causing a halt to a momentum of the object in motion, or, it can cause there to be motion to a body that was at rest, or it can completely change the direction of that object in motion. In essence, all forces end up being classified either into two categories: CONTACT forces or NON-CONTACT Forces. Continue reading
There are a lot of issues we as a species face in this life on this planet, as well as the rest of this life that we share this planet with. But we sure seem to be the most intelligent life on this planet. We sure have accomplished up to this point in life. But there is still a lot more to be done.
We are in an age of transition. It seems to have just worked out that upon exiting the 1900’s and transiting into this new millennium, a ton is changing early on in the initial phase of the common era 2000 years. With a new technological revolution has brought about a ton of progression and spreading of ideas, but as of now, it seems to only benefit a few classes of people, while other humans pay the price for the rest of us to have access to new technology. Nevertheless, this new wave of technology has given us a lot of answers that are necessary to commence with this transition.
During just about every person’s upbringing, there was a point in time where we all believed that we had a mission in life. Whether it be through older children, parental figures, teachers, religious institutions, or other important figures in our lives, we were all introduced to the belief that we each had a purpose in our lives. That feeling may have faded or people may have come to the conclusion that there is no purpose for any of us, we can all still make a mark on the people around us and have the chance to change and improve the lives of those close to us.
If life doesn’t seem to have a purpose anymore or might seem like it is spiraling in a negative direction, here are some tips to help you feel like you can make a difference in this world. Continue reading
It seems apparent that most humans appreciate knowing the answers to things. To stay informed, most people will tune into the news networks, public radio, read the newspaper, a magazine, or visit their favorite news websites. These forms of media claim to have answers that they have done through their “investigative journalism,” and they are submitted to you, the viewer or reader as a way of “easy to access” through their “trusted network.”
We began as single cells who multiplied. Over the course of billions of years, we came to this existence. We beat out all of the other sperm cells and eggs to become the being that was born in flesh capable of thought.
As time passes on, and we progress through the journey of life, at some point we begin to question our own existence. As we learn more about what this world is, and answer some of the questions of our youthful days, more questions spring about than ever before. We learn that there are only so many answers to so many of these questions that we have at a point in the human life. Those who came before us no longer seem like the people who knew more about life, but it seems that they knew a different life altogether.
