5 Minute Think!

“If I’m being kind to you but you think I’m being horrible, am I being kind or not?”

The dictionary definition of kind is ‘Having or showing a friendly, generous, and considerate nature.’ I believe if you have the intention of being kind and you can support your intention then you can be defined as being kind. If another person misinterprets your kindness for something else the term kind is still in play. A person can have a kind nature but still be horrible. Here is a video of the kindness project https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqGireQyomw. If kindness is based off a person’s nature as the definition says it does then what they say can’t be defined as kind or not as it is based on the nature of their action. Also I believe it’s the persons opinion and how they take it which defines it as kindness or unkindness.

“Is a white sheet of paper more blank then a black sheet of paper?”

I believe it is of personal preference as both are shades although a synonym of blank is plain which causes people to not notice the object or person. When it is light a white piece of paper is less noticeable then a black piece of paper. Otherwise if it is dark a black piece of paper is less noticeable.

“Is love an invention created by humans?”

Love is a strong feeling of affection and to know if it was created by humans we must see if other animals show love. This relates to the five minute think on if animals have ideas.

We know reproduction occurs throughout the animal kingdom but love is about communicating: verbal and body language. I believe love is just the word used to describe the connection people have and puts a word to an action. In this sense a mother can be seen to ‘love’ her child whether it’s a human or not. I think all living things have the ability to love and therefore humans didn’t invent the emotion of love.
