  • Guidelines Of The Care Of The Body
    638 words
    Islamic teachings The Islamic teachings about the care of the body have some similarities to our own culture. The guidelines of the care of the body are stricter in the Muslim life than in our culture. The care of the body is an important standard in the social behavior of their divine law. Muslims believe that their body belongs to God and not to the person. That body needs to be very clean and washing the body is part of their religious rituals. Muslim has standards and guidelines for the type...

  • Physical Events In The Body
    572 words
    Rene Descartes certainly didn't lack for credentials. As the 'Father of Rationalism,' 'Father of Modern Philosophy,' and originator of Cartesian geometry, he had more than enough interests to fill his spare time. But his role as 'Father of Skepticism' helped popularize a major change in thinking about the nature of human experience. Dualism, or the doctrine that mind and body are of two distinct natures, is one of the key philosophical problems inherited by psychology. In both philosophy and psy...
  • Physical Plane Versus The Astral Plane
    1,545 words
    Out of body experiences, or OBE's can most commonly be defined as " the soul's temporary excursion from the body". This type of phenomenon tends to get confusing because of the fact that there are a variety of different circumstances in which the soul may leave the body. To narrow the subject down, astral plane projection, which is a specific type of OBE, will be discussed. In astral plane projection, the soul leaves the body; it enters a whole new world of consciousness on a different plane. On...
  • Descartes The Link Between Mind And Body
    1,137 words
    Rene Descartes' Argument from Divisibility is the argument in which he claims that the mind and the body are two completely different things and thus cannot be identical. His argument is that the body is divisible because it can be physically altered like being cut in half. His belief is that the mind is indivisible because it is not a physical thing. Descartes believed that if two things do not have identical properties then they couldn't be the same. What Descartes was suggesting was that huma...
  • Motions And Collisions Of Bodies
    282 words
    Descartes argued that bodies differ from how they appear through senses. Colors, sounds, tastes, smells, heat, and cold are merely sensations existing in thought, and there is nothing in bodies that resembles them, just as there is nothing in bodies that resembles our sensation of pain. Instead the properties of bodies are those which are capable of being quantified, namely, extension and its modes, shape, size, and motion. He denied the existence of a vacuum, because what one would be inclined ...
  • Non Physical Mind
    956 words
    Materialism vs. Dualism There is no doubt that we are physical beings, but there is a question as to where our consciousness comes from. Can this consciousness come from a completely physical make up or do we have another non-physical entity Does consciousness come from a physical brain or a non-physical mind The two competing views of this question are materialism and dualism. Materialism views the world as being made up of only physical things, while dualism believes that everything has a phys...

  • Shaman's Body
    991 words
    A Shaman is a person anchored securely in both the physical world and the spiritual realm, a mediator if you will. Therefore, Shamanism is a way of life revolving around interaction of the spiritual and physical worlds. The Shaman does not solely exist as other humans do; they lead a totally different life in conjunction with their earthly duties within their tribe. The two are not separate by any means; one has direct impact on the other, or so it is believed by those who study this form of hea...
  • Mind And Body
    875 words
    According to Descartes, the essence of material substance is simply extension, the property of filling up space. (Med. V) So solid geometry, which describes the possibility of dividing an otherwise uniform space into distinct parts, is a complete guide to the essence of body. It follows that there can be in reality only one extended substance, comprising all matter in a single spatial whole. From this, Descartes concluded that individual bodies are merely modes of the one extended being, that th...
  • Physical Exercise
    356 words
    Physical exercise means the regular movement of the limbs of our body according to rules. It is essential to keep our body fit and mind sound. Human body is like a machine. A machine gets rust for want of proper use. Similarly we can not maintain good health and keep our body fit for work without physical exercise. Physical exercise is of various kinds. Good forms of exercise are walking, swimming, ridding, racing, rowing, gymnastics, wrestling and playing many outdoor and indoor games. A prover...
