From film to the emergence of impressionism and modern art painting. With science, artists know that a photograph is not the way we see the world, the way we focus is always interlaced with remembering of the past and predictabilities of the future. Artists are interested in depicting sensations. …

Being in a dorm, with roommates, takes away the comfort of family. It is the norm in an individualistic culture where 18-year-olds are asked to leave all ties behind and find their way through peers and college institutions. Restricting family ties does not make many, even with their unique personality traits and attachment styles, more productive human beings, rather they struggle to find an important balance, and if they do, it is hard to maintain.

Being born last gives you an “advantage” in your brain and time. Inequality in the resources of mental externalities is real and can make predictions in the personality you turn out to form, it all extends back from childhood. What place-in-line you were born in can predict how you view life and your mental health.

Note: The “Advantages” in the subheadline is not fully true. These are not advantages, rather things that make you unique; that many children born last are unique with. …

The things that matter most are emotionally ridden, and we need not gaslight people that are emotional, and see them as unprofessional, and immediately lose our trust and their credibility. The most biologically emotional people are teenagers, and then we develop a new culture in adulthood, but we must not forget that we decided on our opinions when we were emotionally ridden teenagers: We are using formalities of what seems like logic as a veil to silenced emotions by our now fully developed prefrontal cortex.

“This adolescent empathy frenzy can seem a bit much for adults. But when
