Answer by Hummer T
I’m going to be a junior (grade 11) in about three weeks, starting September 6. I took all three science courses, physics, biology, and chemistry. I also took other challenging courses on top of that as I would like to go into medicine in university. What I would advise is, if you enjoy the physics unit in grade 10, take the course. Otherwise do not as I hear it is quite a stressful course and you do not want it to bring down your average since Junior year is very very important in terms of university admissions. The same goes with biology and chemistry although I’ve heard biology is really quite simple, all you have to do is study. Good luck! :)

Question by : How can I learn about natural sciences (physics, astronomy, astrophysics) if they are not related to my major?
I love science but the only sciences I somewhat understand are biological and social science but I know almost nothing when it comes to the natural sciences (except biological) I would love to learn about physics and astronomy. I want to mention that in high school I only took the most basic physics and astronomy classes (only one time) I am in my first year of college for (majoring in nursing so physics and astronomy are not pre-reqs) and I’m taking psychology, nutrition (biology) and chemistry.

I try reading articles about astrophysics and it’s obvious I need to know about it before I can understand it

I know it’s helpful, if not necessary, to have some mathematical knowledge and being familiar with the scientific method.

Where should I start? Is there a book someone can recommend?

Answer by eri
You can take a class in those subjects even if they aren’t related to your major. That’s what electives are for. Or you can get an intro astronomy book out of the library.

Question by Madam Mercy: Why do God related religions create a “conscience” but not “consciousness”?
Many people have the false notion that “conscience” & “consciousness” are the same.

The root is one, but they are 2 separate branches moving in diametrically opposite directions.

“Conscience” IS forced on you by others.

“Consciousness” is an evolution rising from your own depths to the ultimate heights.

Best answer:

Answer by Darrin
Your conscience speaks to you about things of morality, nothing else. How does that happen?
When you steal something, your conscience tells you its wrong. Conscience comes from two words con=with and science=knowledge….So everytime you do something wrong you do it with knowledge that it is wrong………..>

Consciousness just means you are awake or alert or alive…….>

This was the 17th and 18th century intellectual movement related to the power of human reasoning and questioning. Governments were seeing the end of tyranny along with religious toleration for an individuals freedom of worship. Major players during this time were Montesquieu, Locke, Rousseau, and Voltaire. Jefferson used many of Locke’s ideas when Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence.

what is the child of enlightenment?
and how are we considered to be child of enlightenment?

Best answer:

Answer by NeutronBomb
Haskalah (Hebrew: השכלה‎; “enlightenment,” “education” from sekhel “intellect”, “mind”), the Jewish Enlightenment, was a movement among European Jews in the late 18th century that advocated adopting enlightenment values, pressing for better integration into European society, and increasing education in secular studies, Hebrew, and Jewish history. Haskalah in this sense marked the beginning of the wider engagement of European Jews with the secular world, ultimately resulting in the first Jewish political movements and the struggle for Jewish emancipation. The division of Ashkenazi Jewry into religious movements or denominations, especially in North America and anglophone countries, began historically as a reaction to Haskalah.

In a more restricted sense, haskalah can also denote the study of Biblical Hebrew and of the poetical, scientific, and critical parts of Hebrew literature. The term is sometimes used to describe modern critical study of Jewish religious books, such as the Mishnah and Talmud, when used to differentiate these modern modes of study from the methods used by Orthodox Jews.

Question by kae: What is the most recent MAJOR advance in neuroscience or a related field?
It has to be very major, like completely game-changing, OR something that solved a large problem in neuroscience (like research that helped find the cure for an entire disorder). Preferably an invention, technique, etc. that is something many people know of (if not many people, people who know about neurology/neuroscience). The MRI machine would be perfect because it’s now vital in the field and related fields, but it needs to be something that happened after the year 2000. Thanks!

Best answer:

Answer by GaryR
The most significant advance in Neuroscience is they have discovered that if you read your homework assignments and do your own research, you actually learn something and pass your tests. You also get A’s in school. You don’t get them by asking other people to do your homework. Start reading.
