Content is the King

Semantics, the study of meaning. Is part of the linguistics focussed on sense and meaning of language or symbols of language.  It is the study of interpretation of signs or symbols as used by agents or groups within particular circumstances and contexts. Semantics asks, how sense and meaning of complex concepts can be derived from simple concepts based on the rules of syntax. The semantics of a message depends on its context and pragmatics.

Syntax, as in grammatics denotes the study of the principles and processes by which sentences are constructed in particular languages.
In formal Languages, syntax is just a set of rules, by which well formed expressions can be created from a fundamental set of symbols, or alphabet. In computer science, syntax defines the normative structure of data.

Context denotes the surrounding in an expression. Its relationship with surrounding expressions and further related elements.
Contexts denotes all elements of any sort of communication that define the interpretation of the communicated content, general, personal or social content.

Pragmatics reflects the intention by which the language is used to communicate a message. In linguistics pragmatics denotes the study of applying language in different situations. It also denotes the intended purpose of the speaker. Pragmatics studies the ways in which context contributes to meaning.

Experience considers all information that you have learned and put in context with the world you are living in.

The term social goes far beyond digital. Socialization is part of human culture and is one of the reason human species thrived on planet earth. It might take some time for a few, others can never understand what happened in its entire complexity, but nothing can stop the will for change. Let change come from inside.

“This is the sense of community that human beings long for, and it is something that is strengthened with SOCIAL MEDIA. In fact, it is part of the reason of social media’s meteoric ascendancy in our lives. Face-to-face interaction still can’t be beat on certain levels, but social media does help you fell as though you are part of a community. Social media helps a national or global item feel intimate.

The Intuitionist View

The rationalist assumption about our moral architecture are now being challenged by a more intuitionist view.

This intuitionist account puts emotion and unconscious intuition at the center of moral life, not reason; it stresses moral reflexes, alongside individual choice; emphasizes the role perception plays in moral decision making, before logical deduction.

In the intuitionist view, the primary struggle is not between reason and the passions. Instead, the crucial contest is within Level 1, the unconscious-mind sphere itself.

This view starts with the observation that we all are born with deep selfish drives–a drive to take what we can, to magnify our status, to appear superior to others, to exercise power over others, to satisfy lusts. These drives warp perception.

These deep impulses treat conscious cognition as a plaything. They not only warp perception during sin; they invent justifications after it. We tell inaction had it coming; that the circumstances compelled us to act as we did; that someone is to blame. The desire pre-consciously molds the shape of our thought.

But not all the deep drives are selfish ones, the intuitionist stress. We are all descended from successful cooperators. Our ancestors survived in families and groups.

Humans also possess a suite of emotions to help with bonding and commitment. We blush and feel instantaneous outrage when we violate social norms. We feel instantaneous outrage when our dignity has been slighted.

In humans, these social emotions have a moral component, even at a very early age. These sort of moral judgments are instant and emotional. They contain subtle evaluation. As we’ve seen so often in this story, the act of perception is a thick process. It is not just taking in a scene but, almost simultaneously, weighing its meaning, evaluating it,  and generating an emotion about it.
