“The unexamined life is not worth living”
Socrates, Greek Philosopher
Have you ever wondered if the colours you see are the same for other people? For example, does ‘blue’ look the same for everyone, or do some people see it as red, or green perhaps?
Have you ever thought about whether life is all mapped out for us, or if we get to choose our own destiny? When you choose to do something, is it really you doing the choosing, or does it just feel that way?
Have you sometimes thought that right and wrong just aren’t as simple as people make them out to be? For example, is it ok to eat meat? If not, is it ok for people who have no other source of food? Does it differ between animals?
