When one wants to know and tell the size or page number of any given write up such as an article or an essay, this is merely dependent upon the nature of the write up whether it is hand written or not, and if it is computer print out, one should know the nature and type of the font style such as font type and font size so that one could tell the article has such number of pages since it uses such font style with its size number otherwise it would be misleading to tell although the size of the font and the font style could not change the content and objective of the article. They have to express themselves in unambiguous languages.
People should be clear in their communication and on what they want to deliver to others otherwise it is not possible to understand with each other with vague perceptions and sign language communication within people who can speak and exchange words of communications. For example if few people think that Jesus Christ is from Ethiopia since Ethiopia is mentioned in the Bible, it is their understanding which should be respected but it is not possible to impose such given understanding and interpretation on someone one from Ethiopia since that someone’s from Ethiopia’s understanding should also be respected too.
Yesterweek one was thinking as to a given exposures one could face in life while correlating such aspect and wondering as to an experience on the computer in which there is an icon on the computer desktop which all have on one’s computer called, recycle bin. One was thinking as to change the title or name of the recycle bin to another name called as best place, and in another time, one changed this recycle bin thing to waste basket. Whether one makes it as the best place or waste basket, it is just the title or name of that given icon changed, but not the true nature, function and character of the icon, which is still garbage icon.
This is one of the drama and theater on stage that is going on the earth in which most of the things we have on this world are in most cases are title change, but as one goes on checking the natures, functions and features of what is going on this world, they could be dated back two or three centuries back, but in today, they are known and identified by another name or drama, though the nature and function of any give undertaking is the same. Can a toilet room be dining room no matter paradigm shift in thinking occurs and beautiful perfumes are on it?
Or else an activity could be known by one thing in one place is introduced to another place by another, but the title and name of the activity could be changed with little modifications and most people could assume and tell that it only belongs to them, and such given undertaking makes them special or unique in the whole world. When one goes on and one travels and meets many people and one augments in the experience and exposures of life, one could find duplication of such given activities all over but when one live and reside in only one place, one could consider that what others claim is true and one could feel and think that one is unique and special.
For example, every human being has three basic needs as we were told and know in history books and we experience as well. Food, shelter and clothing are the inevitable necessities of any given person; they still work on true no matter complexities and advancement human society is undergoing in anywhere, it is not possible to live without them; what could vary in here is that few societies have fulfilled them which does not mean that they are not basic needs; the truth is out there, but other additional needs are discovered since the rudimentary aspects are fulfilled. The design is changed, the type of food people eat in today and yesterday is different; the design of clothes and type of clothes are different and the same is true in the housing aspect.
While such theatrical aspect of life is going on, there are individuals and societies who could feel different and special since they had something different in past, which is not a secured warranty to the present day society and thinking in fact it could become an obstacle to the progress and achievements any given society aspire to do due to reasons and complications of past and historical aspects of any given society undertaking since they could forget to analyze and investigate the root cause in wrong manner and they are attached to hindrances too.
Is feeling or thinking special or unique due to the fact that one is doing something which others are deprived of or cannot do is not warranty to a truthful aspect of on the claim people are doing since the feeling or thinking of specialty or uniqueness by itself cannot make any given person, society or institution as the most viable and truthful person and society since what one claims as true could only be justified when there are objective matters that are translated as true and correct and valid in today.
When any person lives with the idea of thinking that I am different gesture of life style, this given person suffers; the same is true to any society since such aspect of life is untreated, neglected and unidentified for many years and is considered as normal way of life. This is a social and psychological problem and difficulties of such given society is having since such kind of attitude and thinking needs social psychological treatments and those psychologists who live in such domain need to be treated first than they treat others due to the fact they share such social psychological disorder, difficulties and problems. A society who lives in such way of life needs to treats itself than it treat and medicate other people; or others should help them out.
When any people or any given nation has something special or unique thing on the earth, it adds certain flavor to the world. However, when people claim that the idea of having something as the only unique people on earth and as life and death thing, this is what one could learn from what any given society is going on since such attitude and thinking is not guarantee and merit to any civilization and best advancement any given society should undertake in this world, except empty pride and vain egoistic personalities and attitudes and thinking.
Any nation or society advances since it has unique things or natural resources, but it has great thinkers, visionaries and people who are determined to change and transformation. Those nations who attribute history and other traditional values as precious assets, but in other side of such things, such history and traditions do not warrant any success and observable advancements and development in the nation and in the world cannot be justified as national treasures since it is not plus point and warranty to the civilization any given society should undertake.
This can be justified in way that the balance is how is its impact in relation to its coverage is, does it encompass the mass or few group, and does it benefit the elite group or the poor majority and so on. Whatever civilization is there, in past or present, does such civilization have an impact on the mass or it is just the fabrication and fantasy of few people? Can we claim that such given civilization belong to the mass? When the mass feels and owns it and thinks like the way such claim does, yes it is; but any given civilization that make the mass to live in confusion and stress in way that such given civilization could eat and vanish its integrity, people should reconsider and revise its structure and ingredients.
One of the significant contributors of such drama in terms of civilization is the abundant existence of quality literature and power of literature in vernacular languages. When people have treasures in such aspect of undertaking, its own civilization and advancement is securely established. Otherwise, when people sleep on their own history, but it eats and drinks of the literature and styles of other nations and people literature, here, such given society lives in state of confusion and contradiction since the claims and what they are falling apart.
When the power of literature is married with the world of thinking in one’s own way, one’s own civilization is borne. Otherwise, any given civilization is borne out of copy and paste of other people civilization and culture is like a house which is founded upon ice basement since there is no such identity and one’s own thing one can claim in here is since it is already established with others thinking machinery although the land belongs to one’s own society. Here is like, the office where the municipality belongs to one in here but the administration and thinking machinery of the municipality belongs to others.
If it is not possible to have one’s own civilization in one’s own way, it is better and wise to copy and paste other people civilization since it is better than having nothing. Identity is important since it is a sign of independence, but such identity should not be confused with arrogance and pride that makes any society fail to appreciate and understand the values and gems concealed in other peoples’ and society. However such identity should add and augment the capacity of people and society to see the potential and beauty of other people in their proper, rightful and nice sense and manner.
When any given society claims that it has its own civilization, civilization is a continuous and dynamic process; it is progressive and does not begin and stop for a while since true civilization has strong foundation and others add up on otherwise it is not civilization and it is just something else. It is not a onetime event and drama like any given music or theater or movie but rather it is the emanation of the human mind which can see for several years. It is not like a love song one sing for a beautiful woman or man, but rather it is framework whose skeleton is visualized by the power of imagination, thru determination and sacrifice, such given vision and goals are met.
And such civilization is claimed, it leaves a trace to the next ones something else since it upgrades the human mind and has an influence on the whole who are beneficiary and surrounding. There are two ways people could be civilized even if civilization is brought by few people, the first one is by the awareness program which is done on institutional basis and undertakings; but second one is by the hardship and the consequences of what any given civilization has to bring about especially whet it comes to existence in places where people are backward, by the trial and error thing and the ins and outs of such advancement deliver and undertake thru such progresses achieve by the process of any given civilization.
Civilization is about satisfying the human needs and fulfillment of the human requirements of life; it does not happen for nothing. When any given civilization is come, it should address the human and basic needs in that give society, since civilization begins from addressing the natural human needs to adding other human requirements and elements such as wants and interests and likes and do not likes. In any given society it should properly satisfy basic needs such has food, clothe and shelter, and civilization matters in here on how such needs are addressed and articulated, the degree and color of articulation in such aspect of human life and conditions.
The west is civilized society since they know how to address their basic needs, they have nice foods; they have beautifully articulated clothes; they have nice automobiles; they have profound and beautifully articulated houses and roads and how they build houses and structures of such buildings are articulated along with needs of society, seeing present day and to the future prospects and needs as well; they care on how society should communicate in way time is one factor and they try to consider the concepts of time and space management in effective and efficient manner; when they are hungry, they know what and where to eat food since they secured enough stock in everywhere where as others deliver hope and promises, or pamphlets that contain the Biblical words and the like.
The other aspect of reflection of civilization besides securing and establishing basic human needs is thinking. Any society is civilized since it removes fear within its domain. When people think different, they should be nicely welcomed and respected. A society who removes such fear amongst the majority public has done well in the world of civilization. When the majority public lives in state of fear and traumatic conditions of fear, due to past and present condition of life— in the world of thinking—such society is in state of confusion and frustration, which is hard to imagine. Freedom is one of the best ingredients of life in the world of civilization. Without freedom, civilization is chimera.
Other social needs such as the idea of rights, justice and other related aspect of human lives and conditions are the other aspect of any given civilization, society should secure. Civilization is not about going to Jupiter or Mars, it is about securing and satisfying individuals and social needs and wants in rightful and correct approaches and way of life in this world regardless of articulations method which could vary on traditions, cultures and value makings of society, in a world where most people seek piece of bread on the earth.
In fact, it is considered as diverting the agenda of human needs and priorities of life on the earth such as individual and social needs, in a time and condition when any given state or government fails to meet its domestic agendas of life, it goes on to knock the doors of its neighborhood, the moon, Jupiter and the like; it considers others strategies and explores other means and way of life. Such practice of diverting the agendas of life is normal practice but wrong and bad that sound as bizarre to those destitute nations and people since they cannot think and it is not their priorities of life. This is, in reality, one of the failures this world undergo since it cannot think like one body and as organs of one body since pains and sufferings of others are not considered and felt in proper way.
We live in world and time that there are people of civilization with sophistication as there are people who still live the way they are and captive of nature in which such people belong to the primitive way of life. This world in time of creation and this world in due process of time in today do exist on the earth. Both live and exist in this world. The gap should be narrowed; the contradictions should be reconciled. In such world, to live is to die as to die is to live; when civilization replace nature; nature has to replace civilization as well.
