Top 10 Concepts Most of Us Can't Understand

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

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.

To love, in my own word, is to care deeply for each other, not to mindlessly lust. But back then, you never were meant to love another. You did it for the money or power. Now today you lust over JB or 1D or anyone else for the wrong reasons. Looks don't matter, it all involves personality. I know you are a fan, but think about your thoughts. Same goes for the rest of us, including me. Choose someone you know can be there for you. - SwagFlicks

The most powerful and blissful feeling that can possibly be perceived by a human is mutual true love.

2 Life

I go into weird thought chains when I'm thinking about the concept of life. Sometimes, I find it unbelievable that I'm living. - LightningBlade

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 Art

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.

There will be another JB, Nicki Minaj, and deadmau5. There is no doubt. But there will never be another Mozart, the Vinci, and Chopin. Because they can virtually never be replicated in our lifetime due to their impact on our culture. That's true art. - SwagFlicks

Art is everywhere. The art of music, the art of drawing, the art of cuisine, it's just everywhere, but we can't understand it. - Swellow

4 Beauty

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

Its easy, Beauty is something that makes you want for it to last forever. - LightningBlade

5 Death

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

Epicurus : " Death is not important. As long we are here there is no death and when death is there we are not here anymore.".

Nobody really knows what happens after death... - Turkeyasylum

Death isn't bad. It realeses people from their pain. Dead people are still with us. Watching from the stars, gaurding us. They can't fight our battles, but they cheer for our victories and mourn with us. - ToptenPizza

6 Trust

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

7 Friendship

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 Mistakes

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

10 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

The Contenders

11 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

12 Math
13 Anger
14 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

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 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?

17 Gender

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?

Science knows what gender is. This is not a mystery anymore. Simply said : DNA, Chromosones...

Since when is rap a " concept "?
