Top 10 Concepts Most of Us Can't Understand

SwagFlicks
To understand, is to essentially grasp the meaning of something. Most of us are blind to actually consider we understand the things we think we understand.

"To understand, you must collect by your own thoughts, then use it wisely for the better."
-Hendrix Reynolds

There are many things we don't understand, and we just have to do the best we can with the knowledge we have.

The Top Ten

1 Love

I hate everyone lmao - Crizz

I miss my brother, he was my only best friend in this world and he's dead now

You can love someone like you want to spend the rest of your days with them, you can love someone like a friend, like a brother and many more - namesnipe

Is hard to understand because its opposite " hate " is part of the concept to understand the meaning of love. Somebody who's never been loved or have loved will never know what love is. But someone who has loved or has been loved will understand the real value of love when the day comes he will feel its opposite. Only when you feel its opposite you will know what the benefit of love was, what love was when it's missing or lost. Love can be understood when you understand what hate is and what hate does.

2 Life

Imagine the world before with all the gods and all that peace, and look at it now. Exactly.

You only live once... life is very hard to understand

Hey, as Calvin's Dad said "You were a Blue Light Special at K-Mart, almost as good, and a lot cheaper." But no, life is a ever-circulatory cycle that expands our viewing and our image of humanity. But that's just a blurb of the many blurbs. - SwagFlicks

3 Death

How

My brain blocks me from really imagining never feeling anything again. - JoLeKosovo

True. I tried imagining it but then I couldn't. I got close one time and then literally had a small panic attack realising that will be me one day. - 0w0uwu

No one really knows what happens after we die.

This is a subject that is impossible to understand unless you go through it yourself, or witness someone go through it. Understanding death is like growing up, as you grasp onto the world and what our lives on this world means. - SwagFlicks

4 Art

Art is about painting not insulting pop stars nowadays.

Hey lemme say something real quick: art isn't about pleasing OTHERS, it’s about pleasing yourself.

I know. Mind blown.

Art is a form of expression and communication. Like people who talks or writes about their ideas of everyday life there will be lovers or haters. It's the same with art. You can love or hate someone's form of art. What make sense for some can equally not make sense for others.

Where does the heart of an artist (that's a reference) come from? Where, may I ask, does the artist in us come from. HOW, may I ask, does it come out? There is so much that either varies or is just not understood. - Cyri

5 Beauty

Nobody can agree - blackflower

I adore this list, and truly, beauty and what I deem beautiful is what I'll replicate on a page. It may be pain, sorrow, or anger I draw, but everything I draw will be what I see as beautiful. There are so many factors in beauty and it's so abstract, I couldn't even begin to describe or understand it. - keycha1n

Beauty is a subjective and relative concept or notion. What can be beauty to some can be ugly to others and vice versa. Many makes the mistake that beauty is good and has utility in this world ( For instance, concepts like art, someone who does a good action is concidered as good and that he did a beautiful thing and so on... ). Beauty is just a subjective idea or ideal and has no real context in a objective nature. But that's why it's so difficult to understand if you have to answer the question " What is beauty? ".

True beauty is basically what lies within you, not your outside appearance. Us, the teens of 2015, care about beauty, when we should care about other thing we can use later on. - SwagFlicks

6 Trust

I don't trust my mom she constantly lies to me - ihatetrump

Trust is a state of mind, brought by the appearance of a person. Dogs don't trust us after we kick them, because of the scent of the monster that hurt them before. I wish we could smell the people that hurt us before. - SwagFlicks

My relatives need to learn how to trust me.

7 Friendship

A lot of people take friendship for granted. It's really sad. As a person who's relied on my friends quite a lot, I could never imagine life without them. I have an emotional support friend, a relatable friend, the most kindest person in the world friend, the person who always makes me laugh friend, etc. As a quiet observer, I've observed a lot of so called friend situations. I've seen the common just here for your homework friend, and many more. This is what I want to say: Your not a true friend if your relying on a friend for something materialistic, your not there friend. If you often avoid the friend in any other situation unless you need help with something that is materialistic, your not a real friend. etc.

Good, real friends are hard to find. Friendship is very powerful and pure. Never forget a friend that helped you in times of need. - MirrorImage

We take friendship for granted, bullying the people we call friends, taking their hats, their books, but it's all in good fun. This is a sub-genre of trust, brought by the appearance and nature of humanity... - SwagFlicks

8 Pain

Pain is a feeling that hurts by intensifying the pressure or emotion of the situation that brought you the pain. It is a warning for us to stop and realize our limits. We must understand pain in order to stop it from happening to us. Take risks, but too many can end you. - SwagFlicks

9 Our Limits

We bring ourselves to limits previously unexplored in brief moments of our lives, but we also risk the consequences of building up to that moment. We must learn from past experiences from our lives, to truly understand. - SwagFlicks

10 Mistakes

Yeah I can’t understand my own mistakes often. - Userguy44

If history doesn't understand, it is bound to repeat terror. Take WWII for example. Germany was essentially the blamee in both WWI and WWII. For different reasons. Germany was handled with all the blame in WWI or so I heard, and in WWII, it was the center of the blame again, but for (knowingly? ) the death of 6 million Jews. So history itself is a bomb ready to explode. And mistakes are made consecutivly in matters of time. - SwagFlicks

The Newcomers

? Afterlife

Honestly what is it if there is an afterlife (rather boring if there isn't anything)
Heaven & Hell
Reincarnation
Ghosts
or something else if we have an afterlife

12 Common Sense

"Common sense is the collection of prejudices aquired by age eighteen." -Albert Einstein. Truly, I think common sense is rubbish too, because its what society deems we should act. Sometimes yes, social norms are necessary, but knowing when to break them and to think outside of the box is really important in developing as a person. - keycha1n

Again, another BS list. I understand all of these are just a load of rubbish. Common sense however, especially on TheTopTens, is someing there is a lack of. - gemcloben

13 Anger
14 God

This sounds crazy...
But do you think you have ever seen Demons and heard a voice that you think is the voice of God.

Many people who believe in God pray to get something and treat God as a wishing well. They don't understand that our purpose is to love God and try to please him/her thru our actions thoughts and words.

15 Magnets

Forces are an interesting concept in general, but magnets have to be the hardest to explain. Even if you know how they work, it’s impossible to prove WHY they work. Unless somebody here is smart enough to prove me wrong. �"Prototype 3

How do they work? And I don't want to talk to a scientist cause those mfers lie and get me pissed

How do they work without scientefic comments will never make you understand how they work ( responce to the " pissed-want to know it easy without using my brain " comment ).
The most simply way to make understand a pissed out person ; Earth has a north-pole and a south-pole which is one ( I said " one " ) of the causes of gravity. Those Di-poles ( sorry for the scientefic word [? ] ) attract and repulse because of the occuring atomic energy ( in atoms ).
PS. I understand it in a scientefic comment ( which is more complex ) but the simple comment I wrote should do it ( which I don't understand. LOL ).

16 Gender

I sexually identify as a toaster - GleamingShadow

You are a straight male or female, case closed

Your a boy or a girl

Yes, but it's more complex than just DNA and chromosones. What about hermaphrodites, people with two hearts or two heads on one body etc...? Is that a mixed-up fault of DNA?

17 Infinite Space

I believe that our mind capacities are too limited to understand infinity. We know what it means but to imagine something that has no end is in fact unimaginable. There are theories that space is not infinite and that it has its end, but then again, what lays beyond that end?

18 Quantum Physics

Totally I am indian and in 4th grade and can do quantam physics like a 12th grader!

28 Transgender

29 Other Religions

No why is this on the list I'm an atheist and anyone else who seen this on the list remember we are all born with any personality and religion that is worth respecting.

I agree. I'm not exactly a religious person, but people need to stop hating on others just because of their religion. - Vancedapurpleguy
