I too, sing America.
I am hidden in the shadows.
they stow me away
when others are near.
But I will thrive
and amaze them.
I will come outside
when the other are near
will try to ignore me again.
they'll see my true capabilities
and regret hiding me.
I, too, am America
To be American, I think it means you are free. You have the rights here in America that a lot of other countries don’t have, where people can be themselves and have the power to be active or become a leader in their community. The American life is the way our government works, and all of the cultures we have in this country. The American life is the way people express everything in forms such as art and literature. To be American is to have the capacity to stand up for yourself and believe what you want to believe. To be American is to have the ability to choose your leaders, even though someone will always disagree with you. The American life is the way we interact with each other and communicate. We communicate through music, art, literature...etc., and it is what brings some of us together as Americans. You shouldn’t be afraid to express your opinions, because in America, everyone has a voice of their own. The American life is our journey as a country, and how we have evolved over time. Through the difficulties we faced, it helped our country become what it is today and to be American is to take pride in that.
With our universal theme being "order leads to one another", we can show this through the arrows surrounding the prince's planet and how he is thinking about baobabs while tending to his planet because he knows that if he doesn't take care of his seeds, his planet will be destroyed. We did small pink dots to represent the seeds scattered on his planet and showed him tending to his plants to show he is thinking about how his actions contribute to the state of his planet.
This image shows and represents how we perceive things and peoples' perceptions. The act of perceiving is an irrefutable truth and cannot be doubted since it involves your ability to think. Your specific perception on something can be doubted since it is influenced by other factors telling you how to think, such as authority, culture, or tradition, making it refutable. The ability to think, have viewpoints or perception, and question existence in general all relates to the concept of existentialism and and existing since existing as a whole is just about the ability to think since perception is part of it.
This image shows how one person, such as Hitler, can lead to the universal theme of chaos. Shapes in the abstraction each represents something based on their color and referring to our ladder. All the black and purple represents death. The red specks all around the abstraction represents chaos as a whole. And the blue and black sharp lines represent harsh times that occurred.
4. What does "I think, therefore I am" mean now that you have read Descartes' writings and explored his philisophical viewpoints in class?
The quote "I think, therefore I am" means that due to Descartes ability to think, he knows that he exists. He tells us in his philosophy that if anything can use their mind to think and develop thought, they exist. The fact that he is able to think, shows that he can percieve things, use judgement, and doubt things, therefore proving that he exists.
