Random Note: They say curiosity killed the cat. I guess I should be glad I'm not a cat than.

I wonder...
I wonder a lot of things, really. I think about a lot of things. When I was younger, my mom would refer to me as the child of the thousand why's. Funny, since she is the type that takes things as they are and doesn't wonder why. Why. Always why.

"Why is the sky blue?" "Because that's the color it is." "Yes but  why?" "There is no reason." "There has to be a reason right?" "No." "Oh... Than why is grass green? And why does it grow? Why is a table called a table and not a chair? Why Is a chair called a chair and not a djnhgo? And why do we call it a stoel while others call it a chair? Why do people move? Why do people lie? Why is the sun in the sky? Why does it turn day and night? Why..." Try explaining those things to a four-year old. I must've given her a lot of headaches. "I don't know."

I once read that the true philosopher is the person who can see the same sight a thousand times and still see it as if it was the first time. Who can hear the same thing a thousand times and still question it. If that's true, than I'm surely one of them. I might not ask them as much, now, knowing the ways to find the answers by my self, but I still question. I never did find out why we see the sky as blue. I did find out why grass is green. It's not as much the difference in language that puzzles me now, as it is the existence of language itself. The more I learn, the more questions I have to ask, the more answers to seek out. Psychology is the perfect study for me, for humans, to me, are the greatest wonder of all. Why do they act as they do? Why the differences? Why the similarities? Why one person and not the other? Why one moment and not another? Why...?

Why?

Why.

Why isn't everyone completely baffled by just how well the world works? Why doesn't everyone want to find out?

I don't know. I might never find out. I don't think I'll ever stop asking though.

Another good question to ask is - "Why Not?" ^_^

You are a curious cat, and forever innocent and child-like. That's why you're Ginny-Anne to me. ♥

Haha why not is the worst answer ever. That's what it is. Though I admit that every problem has two sides, it is far easier to just look at one of them XD

*blushes hard* You're being way to sweet! But yeah, I'm curious and I hope I'll never lose it ^^ I mean... Even if I were a cat, there are worse ways to go and honestly? I am kind of curious what happens after you die ~_^

's good. Not asking makes the world stop spinning, makes it ordinary and everyday. Makes it boring and tiresome. Never stop asking questions. <3

Hihi thank you. You do the same. You're right, it makes the world a lot more interesting than not asking them. Someone who has a question to ask is never bored (though they might get very frustrated XD)

*gets an urge to raise her hand*
I know this doesn't really suit the intent you had but...if you really want to know about the sky thing this http://www.sciencemadesimple.com/sky_blue.html might help. Um.


This reminds me of one time in my highschool philosophy course when our teacher was absent, so we watched a movie about this philosopher whose name I forget, and then had to discuss language in groups...
Well, I think the group I was in stayed there untill the actual lesson time was long over ^__^;
One point we never could agree on was whether animals (in this case, chimpanzees, because I understand there is some evidence of them being able to learn sign language) could have a language, and what exactly constituted as a language anyway.
Two people in our group just had to agree to disagree in the end, but that just sparked another discussion on whether two people who had different approaches/criteria on a subject could ever agree on it etc.
A few days later we met up in the halway before the lesson, and before we noticed it was "So, COULD the monkeys have a language anyway?" again XD

I miss my highschool :'D

Oooh thanks! :D *hops off to read*

Hihi your high-school does sound awesome! We had this whole item on monkeys and language and wherther they could learn to talk and why and stuff when we were learning about language acquirement in this developmental cognitive psychology course I did. Basically, gorillas can learn to use signlanguage or pictures to talk in, but they lack the ability to be creative with language. Where we constantly teach ourselves new things, combine things we know to saw new thing etc., the gorillas could only say exactly that what they learned to say. So if they learned to ask "Can I have a banana" and "I give you a hug", they couldn't say "I give you a banana" or "Can I have a hug", for instance (This example is not done like this for real btw).

Just so you know... (A)

Hope it's understandable...I wasn't sure I could explain it myself =_=

Oh, that's interesting as well.
I read some years ago a book (I think it was written by Roger Fouts) about a chimpanzee called Washoe
It was an interesting book,thought many of the stories of what happened to other chimpanzees who were also ...ah, used as test subjects were pretty tragic.
