Well, thats one thing that humans are capable of.Being a person is being able to express idea.
Actually no, they don't always take physical form. Many of them only exist in abstract forms, in imagination, and theory.Ideas takes physical form in the world, so the world is born out of idea and idea are born out of the world.
Actually everything you are about to claim is meaningful to you, came from people who are the thinkers, not the provers (you), and had to come from the imaginative and abstract, so that you could then exist purely in a world of forms without coming up with the ideas to create them. If not for people who couldn't find those deeper thoughts and meanings, you wouldn't have this world of spectacle to hide in.Stripping away the world to find a deeper idea leaves us only with a poorer world.
My job, my car, my family, my clothes are all manifestations of idea.
These are all things that were created and defined, to create the stream, that was already flowing -before- new independent thinkers were thrown into it, and forced to -try- to swim against the flow. If you would rather go with it, and let these things define you, that is fine, but don't claim that there is something inherent truth about human nature in your way.Accusing them for limiting your existence is a mistake. It is we, ourselves, who put ourselves in the circle or the square, and we, ourselves, who can step in and out of them as much as we wish.
That is exactly what they are doing - confining it. Not everyone's character is defined through other people's creations.They add to the diversity of character, they do not confine it.
