How are the feelings separate in the persons mind? They must be linked to other related objects in the persons mind like the category of 'fruit'. Things in the mind are associated with each other based upon their real life associations, but also based upon how the mind learned to associate those 'thought units' - or whatever you want to call them.

The mind works by association chains, basically.

How would two dissimalar items be related to each other then? The mind might have a feeling of 'fruit' if they thought about both an apple and an orange at the same time, or they might think of other individual fruits, or if the feeling that the fruit produces is similar to the feeling of a completely different object then it could be related in terms of similar feelings.

Heidegger wrote that objects in life can be missrepresented. That is a significant concept and is related to artificial intelligence and idea associations. Some ideas can be 'misrepresented' while other ideas are more simple and can be felt and understood easily - and obviously their association chains could be understood.

What does it mean to 'misrepresent' an object, then? Objects mean what they mean, it is very simple. How could it be a complex thing to misrepresent an object? Would that mean confusing one object with another object? Or would it mean confusing the feeling of an object?

So how would the details of idea and object associations play out? Furthermore, what would be considered to be 'advanced' thinking, if the mind only thinks with ideas and objects? It would seem like the mind thinks mostly with simple ideas and objects, and the ideas and objects each having associated and direct feelings.

Perhaps the feelings that certain groups of ideas or objects have lead to greater intellectual categories, for instance fruit could be related metaphorically to furniture, that could be a more intellectual and less direct association - that would be associated in the mind but would be more of an intellectual association. If someone thinks about fruit, then it could be related to furniture because they are both physical objects, but fruit is soft and furniture is hard.

How would that be intellectual? It doesn't seem like that would lead to any advanced thinking. However, it could lead to advanced thinking because all metaphors or comparisons that aren't direct could be harder to figure out or related via less direct associations.

Does that mean that all less direct associations are more intellectual, however? Maybe multiple feelings combine into categories that overlap and the entire thing becomes complicated and intellectual, or something like that.

Idea Associations

So the ideas related to each other with things called associations. Associations relate ideas to each other - they are connected through relationships in real life or cognitive relationships. If someone thinks about something then that could relate to something else that they think about, or the idea in their head could be different from how it is in reality - there is emotional realities and physical realities that could be related.

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
