1 Originality, I think is creating something based on your own thinking and ideas.
You can create new things from mixing pre-existing things and you can use inspirations.
Just because someone has made something slightly similar doesn’t mean your creation isn’t original.
And also anyone can be original.
Being original could be seen as quite important, as it means you aren’t just imitating the people around you or using old ideas and traditional ways of thinking, its shows your unique way of thinking and creativity :3
2 self-actualization could be defined as:
Having freedom from cultural expectations, being able to be true to yourself including having gone through considerable personal development, and gaining a broader, deeper and clearer understanding of life. If that still doesn’t make sense it is basically about fufilling your real needs and not doing things just because others do like a sheep.
Different people may achieve self-actualization in different ways the main things are to maintain your awareness and understanding push boundaries and overcome fears. I think about how different people act at certain times and try to understand the underlying reason.
It is interesting how people have such different ways of thinking yet many people do try to conform to others. People seem to be so individual and unique yet I don’t know if they express this enough. Self-actualization is through a process of discovery and doesn’t happen overnight (and it is continuous) and is something that is up to the person to experiment and decide what works for them.
3 Will energy ever be sustainable?
The world relies on fossil fuels which will run out eventually with supplies of coal, oil and natural gas being only low however there is also the issue of the use of fossil fuels causing the enhanced greenhouse effect and leading to global warming. I think it wouldn’t be possible to live in space if earth becomes inhabitable.
Every energy source has its drawbacks.
Like Wind power which the UK wants to use it to help it achieve its target of generating 10 per cent of electricity with renewable sources. These wind farms face large opposition from others as they have harmful effects on wildlife and they cost a lot to make in the first place.
The better solution would be to save energy use by using the well-known ways of saving energy such as turning of appliances when not used and saving on carrier bags. Recycling helps the environment too although it is important to use less materials in the first place and reuse. Maybe something more innovative needs to be done? This could be like making cities more eco-friendly such as in Curitiba where they have many parks and a complex bus system which is very cheap and attractive to people.
Surveys could be used to find out which areas the most energy is used and how the energy is used and reduce them in these areas by taking specific action. This is probably already commonly done, but the more we know about how energy is used the more we can take specific action. Right now the current economic problems between countries seem to be a priority however
I posted on a couple of other topics too, including whether comparing the idea of being an only child with having siblings, being an only child is often thought as a negative but could have benefits as it helps you to develop your own creativity.
