Life is more than thoughts and emotions - humans perceive life in different ways. They perceive individual objects differently and therefore they perceive everything differently as a whole.

It seems obvious when I say it that way - each person is different and is going to perceive life differently and experience emotions differently. What is behind that difference, however?

Is it that people emotionally develop in different ways or is it that they were born that way? Perhaps a certain perception could be achieved in the persons 20s that is more academic or intelligent than the perception that the person achieved in youth. This difference in perception would be different from how teenagers or young children view the world..

However, how could i describe the difference in development as children age and as young people in their 20’s age? I have described that it is basically the same emotional preferences only a maturation - the emotional ‘orientation’ getting more advanced and developed, possibly changing a slight to moderate amount depending on the type of emotional interest.

So humans all have various emotional interests - that is what makes them human - wait, animals also have emotional interests - they simply aren’t as intelligent as human interests. What makes an emotional interest intelligent, however? Humans have a more complex reaction that shows that they are capable of much more advanced thought, however that could be hard to describe what that difference is exactly.

I twice saw my dog have a basic reaction to a painting - however in retrospect i realize that the reaction was a simple reaction - the painting was very simple and emotional. Dogs probably wouldn’t have a reaction to paintings that have complex scenery or involve complex ideas. I also noticed my dog responding to a basketball player on television making a slam dunk - which is a dramatic emotional experience if you think about it.

So animals clearly have basic emotions and basic intellect - but the basic intellect is basically just tied into the basic emotions. Which ideas and types of intellect are more considered to be human then? I said that ‘advanced’ intellect is human - but how could that be described? Just saying ‘concepts or topics that require further thought’ isn’t really describing it perfectly.

That is basically all it is, however. Thinking provides humans with a more advanced way of viewing the world - the compare, contrast, analyze, etc. Some of these categories of advanced thinking involve human motivation, some involve human emotional preferences (which is related to motivation, but doesn’t involve the motivation drives as much), and human intellectual preferences (which is basically their emotional preferences only they could be described as a more mature type of pursuit).

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?

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
