Playing The Game of Life

The argument of Kripke remains an interesting thought: How do we know that we're doing anything properly? But Wittgenstenians -- the group of people who support the theories of Ludwig wittgenstein -- argue that Kripke is missing the point.

They argue that when you are a part of a form of life it means that you are accepting a system of rules that you don't question, just as how one would play chess; you don't keep asking why certain chess pieces move that way, but you just play the game.

There is a difference between style and fashion

While fashion and style are connected, they are not the same. Fashion relates to the collective, while style is more for the individual.

  • Individual style: Personal style is a means of self-expression. Even if an individual is a fashion designer, how they dress themselves is their style.
  • Collective: Fashion has to do with global trends and the business of fashion. When a fashion model become an influencer, their personal style becomes iconic, and their style then becomes fashion.

We can obtain respect, comfort and time when we distinguish between leisure and play.

  • In Politics, Aristotle considers leisure as time spent learning and contemplating, trying to achieve excellence. It is about growth.
  • Play is about rest and recovery.

For Aristotle, we need to spend our day in work, growth and recovery. Recovery is necessary for both work and growth.

Monuments that mark the equinoxes

There are many monuments that mark the equinoxes such as the Mayan Temple in Chichen, Itza in Mexico. This temple is also known as the Temple of Kukulcan and was dedicated to a serpent god.

Another monument is the Hindu Temple Complex Angkor Wat in Cambodia wherein the sun rises directly above its central temple. It's one of the largest religious monuments in the world as was built between AD 1113 and 1150.

Hip Hop culture and values

Hip Hop culture and rap have been associated with negative connotations, equating them with profanity, misogyny, violence and crime.

The lyrical content of hip hop is confronting and often includes the glorification of violence, substance use, and gender discrimination. But, at its core, it is built on values of social justice, peace, respect, self-worth, community, and having fun. Because of these values, it's used as a therapeutic tool with younger people.
