Complex creatures with feelings and emotions.
The World around us comprises of people.
Excluding the average lunatic living in the forest, we all live in a Society; a society made up of people, and no matter how hard we try we cannot avoid interacting with people.
We are Social Animals.

Therefore, in this scenario, it becomes imperative for us to learn to interact with Humans. To learn to influence Humans. To learn to deal with Humans.
In this process of learning, one will learn about themselves, because ultimately we too, are Humans.
Necessary much?

This series of blog posts will be my studies on People and the results.
Studying People, I call it. The results may be the most obvious ones, the most blatant, everybody-knows-it ones. However, bear with me, because I am starting anew.

Humans are typically two-fold.
The Physical and the Mental.
I will be focussing on the Mental part here. The part where Minds come into play.
Minds. ^_^
Complex, swirly whirly, amazing creations of God.
Unique, fantastic and tremendously interesting.
Minds. ^_^

Philosophiqe #1

Based on the first quasi-poem I posted, some of you may already know my deepest fear; as to who I am and who I’ll turn out to be.
I’ve been pondering and I’ve come up with a few results.
This blog post will deal with the first question, as to Who we are.


As to the integral question of Who we are, I believe that it is simple enough.
We are simply the sum total of our experiences and surroundings.
When we come into this world, I believe that most of us are born with a similar skill set and aptitude level. This is because it has been proven that neural connections, the pathways whose strength influences our memory and general aptitude is not related to Heredity. Notice that I use, the word ‘most’. I am disregarding the born geniuses and the born retards from this equation.

So I believe that a the function of population with respect to the Skill sets and Aptitude will look like this.


However as we grow up this graph generally tends to get modified into this.


This is called a Bells Curve.
This Curve says that in any indigenous population, there are invariably going to be some geniuses and retards with most of the population averaging out between them.
The question that can be derived now is that Why does this graph change? Why does the normal indigenous population, which at childbirth were at the same aptitude level change into a curve, with some becoming more-towards-genius and some becoming more-towards-retard?

Taking a hypothetical world, where the physical characteristics of a person doesn’t affect the mental strength and vice versa, it can be seen that the ONLY differentiating factor between the way Humans grow up, is the Environment and Experiences. Therefore this has to be the only differentiating factor between whether a Human realises his/her potential or not.

It can be stated as follows,
In a world, where physical characteristics do not affect the mental characteristics and vice versa, Human beings are a direct function of Environment and Experiences.

This may seem like a basic result, however it carries a load of significance.
It now is fairly apparent, that the only difference between a person who realises his/her Human Potential and a person who doesn’t is the Environment he/she lives in and the Experiences they undergo.
Therefore, by controlling these factors, we can directly influence how Humans turn out to be
