Questions about the mind

Here is a list of questions about the mind with answers:

 1. What is the mind?

The mind is a set of cognitive faculties including consciousness, perception, thinking and memory. It is typically defined as the faculty of an entity’s thoughts and consciousness. It holds the power of imagination and recognition, among other capabilities.

The mind is often discussed in many different contexts; such as being related to the brain, or being able to apply it to a computer.

2. How do you know what’s on your mind?

I think we all have an idea of what’s on our minds at any given moment, but how do we know this? I’ll admit that I’m not sure exactly how it works, but I think it has something to do with language (mostly).

When you hear yourself say something out loud or in your head, you know that you’re thinking about it because you said so (or someone else did).

It’s sort of like when someone asks “where are my keys?” and then finds them under their bed after saying it out loud because they knew where they were before asking for help finding them.

Mind bending questions with answers

mind-blowing-questions-with-answers

Here is a list of big answers to mind bending questions:

1. Is society really becoming more dangerous, or are we just more aware of the dangers that have always existed?

Well! The answer to this question is a bit tricky. I think it’s both. We are more aware of the dangers that have always existed, but also there are new dangers that have been created by technology and our lifestyle choices.

Also, the world has become a dangerous place for many people, especially women. We see news reports of rap#s and murd#rs on a regular basis, but it’s also true that people have always been killed by other people in different ways over time.

It’s just that today we hear about it more often because of social media and 24-hour news channels.

2. If it’s not a requirement for survival, then why does s#x feel so good?

This one had to be on the list of mind boggling questions. Because it makes no sense to me at all. Sex feels good because of hormones like oxytocin and dopamine, which are released during sex (and are also released during other pleasurable activities).

But why do these hormones make us feel so good? Is there an evolutionary reason for this? I would love someone to explain this one to me!

3. If you could ride a bicycle down a rainbow, would you see all of its colors or just the ones that are facing you?

This one is tricky. I think that if you rode down a rainbow, you would see all the colors of the rainbow no matter what direction you were going in or even if you were going backwards.

This is because rainbows are made up of light being reflected off water droplets and these droplets can be found anywhere along the path of light that was originally produced by something like sunlight hitting an oil spill on water or even off something like a soap bubble. 

What happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object? As per Newton’s third law of motion, if one forces moves towards another force, then both forces will move away from each other at equal speeds (in opposite directions).
