How are the feelings separate in the persons mind? They must be linked to other related objects in the persons mind like the category of 'fruit'. Things in the mind are associated with each other based upon their real life associations, but also based upon how the mind learned to associate those 'thought units' - or whatever you want to call them.

The mind works by association chains, basically.

How would two dissimalar items be related to each other then? The mind might have a feeling of 'fruit' if they thought about both an apple and an orange at the same time, or they might think of other individual fruits, or if the feeling that the fruit produces is similar to the feeling of a completely different object then it could be related in terms of similar feelings.

Heidegger wrote that objects in life can be missrepresented. That is a significant concept and is related to artificial intelligence and idea associations. Some ideas can be 'misrepresented' while other ideas are more simple and can be felt and understood easily - and obviously their association chains could be understood.

What does it mean to 'misrepresent' an object, then? Objects mean what they mean, it is very simple. How could it be a complex thing to misrepresent an object? Would that mean confusing one object with another object? Or would it mean confusing the feeling of an object?

So how would the details of idea and object associations play out? Furthermore, what would be considered to be 'advanced' thinking, if the mind only thinks with ideas and objects? It would seem like the mind thinks mostly with simple ideas and objects, and the ideas and objects each having associated and direct feelings.

Perhaps the feelings that certain groups of ideas or objects have lead to greater intellectual categories, for instance fruit could be related metaphorically to furniture, that could be a more intellectual and less direct association - that would be associated in the mind but would be more of an intellectual association. If someone thinks about fruit, then it could be related to furniture because they are both physical objects, but fruit is soft and furniture is hard.

How would that be intellectual? It doesn't seem like that would lead to any advanced thinking. However, it could lead to advanced thinking because all metaphors or comparisons that aren't direct could be harder to figure out or related via less direct associations.

Does that mean that all less direct associations are more intellectual, however? Maybe multiple feelings combine into categories that overlap and the entire thing becomes complicated and intellectual, or something like that.

Idea Associations

So the ideas related to each other with things called associations. Associations relate ideas to each other - they are connected through relationships in real life or cognitive relationships. If someone thinks about something then that could relate to something else that they think about, or the idea in their head could be different from how it is in reality - there is emotional realities and physical realities that could be related.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
