How do our concepts influence our conclusions? That was a question posed by Kant, however with a deeper understanding of the mind that question can be looked at further.

For instance, there are emotional drives that influence what our thoughts are, however concepts in that sense refers to all the persons ideas that they have formed since birth.

That is another interesting question - I don’t think that Kant asked the question “which idea or concept exactly influences which conclusion” - i would have to describe various concepts and how they influence differing other concepts, assessments and understandings.

Different concepts can change based upon the persons emotional development over time, and you could view a concept that a person has about life based upon different stages in their emotional development.

For instance if the stage of development is ‘identity recognition’ in the persons youth then the concepts that the person has is going to be influenced by their struggle for an identity (whether it is a question of masculinity or other personality traits that determine who the person is).

This articles relates to some of my other ‘truth and reality’ articles because i discussed in other articles how thought is related to feeling and how the unconscious mind influences the conscious mind through feelings, drives and unconscious thoughts influencing and driving conscious thoughts.

So feelings are part of who a person is and a part of how they perceive reality. However, how does something like an interpersonal feeling change how someone perceives reality? How the universe is structured has to do with feelings and how a person views the world. What then is the relationship between how reality is formed and how the mind views reality?

Some objects and structures in reality are concrete, but all are perceived emotionally and cognitively by the mind. What would a structure in reality be that is concrete other than a literal physical building or other physical structure? There is the physical world and the mental world, and these two worlds interact all of the time.

So is that just someones experience of the physical world influencing their feelings? Or is it just describing feelings and thoughts as being physical or elated? Perhaps thoughts and feelings ‘feel’ supernatural and they can be then described as being weird or surreal. It is interesting that feelings can take on so many forms - like trying to describe a feeling as a physical object.

That would basically equate to describing a feeling as being very real, or perhaps it would be describing how a feeling is tied in with certain thoughts making it either a surreal intellectual experience, a surreal emotional and intellectual experience or an ordinary experience.

It would seem that simple feelings are just described in more simple terms than advanced feelings and that is all that is going on. If you think about simple animal like feelings that do not have any advanced components, and therefore all advanced components to life could be considered to be surreal or spiritual.

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
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.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
