What is 'Soul'? Is it spiritual? Is it physical? Is it musical? Is it Social? Is it Universal? What makes up "soul" in our world, and how does it affect us as a human race? Can the idea itself empower humanity? Can it contribute to our morals, our creativity, our work, our culture?

Do we as human beings have 'souls'? When you meet someone, are you getting to know their 'soul'? Do some people lack a soul, and what fills the void? 

What makes living things what they are? Is 'soul' what differentiates between purely material 'things,' from creative, emotional, faithful, vengeful, living 'beings.' 

The idea can be personified in a character that is searching for their own soul that has seemingly gone missing. They begin to find pieces of their 'soul' energy in the art that they admire, the people that they love, the society they live in, and the world that they understand. 

What debates surround the idea of 'soul'? Why would people refute it, or believe in it?

RE: CONSCIOUSNESS



  • What is consciousness?

  • What makes us conscious?

  • What's the difference between the consciousness that animals experience and that of humans?

  • What happens to our minds when we are unconcious?

  • We could explore self-consciousness.

  • We could explore self-awareness: how much do we know of how others perceive us?

  • Are there aspects of the self that the self can never be conscious of?

  • Please also view a previous piece of writing I did in answer to RegularJOE's question 'what happens after we die?' which is related to this topic: We Are All Radios. It might be interesting for creating a short film about consciousness.

RE: RELATIVITY


Some ideas:


I am fascinated by the idea that we only know where we are in the universe in relation to other things in the universe. Imagine yourself in a colourless, lightless, empty space, disconnected from everything: which way is up? Are you falling, floating or hurtling forwards? Knowing ourselves in relation to other things rationalises the world for us.


People often define themselves in relation to other things. A lot of people compare themselves and their achievements to other people and other people's success.


Under this theme we could also explore the idea of normality. The 'norm' can only exist because of relativity and this is why normality is subjective. Normality can only be defined within a constrained realm. We could also look at sub-culture in this context.


I think there's a lot more that could be investigated RE: RELATIVITY, so please contribute your ideas.

Family is maybe the most important thing in life. It is what connects us to each other. it teaches us to love and care. It helps shape the person we become. But Family isnt just those in our life we call Mom or Dad, Brother or Sister. Family can be your closets friends, your teammates, or brothers in arms. It can also be a community. Family can mean a lot of things.
What does Family mean to you?
