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.

2 Life

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.

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

3 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.

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.

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

4 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.

5 Beauty

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? ".

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.

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.

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.

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.

10 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.

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

The Contenders
11 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.

Yeah I can't understand my own mistakes often.

12 Dreams

I've seen giant monsters in my dreams, some of which I believe are the ones responsible for moving the tectonic plates, the ones responsible of moving the plate tectonics are the size of supercontinents on average, the clouds ends at the center of their abdomen, they are taller than the adult cloverfield monster.

in my dreams I encounter many mythical legendary beings & creatures of all sizes & shapes, one creature I ran in/into are saint tortoises, these tortoises bring good luck & they have a symbiotic relationship with lucky cats, another creature I ran In/into are the trinity knights trinity knights are like biblically accurate angels but they can shapeshift & transform In/into anything & they are dangerously quick & fast.

13 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.

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.

14 Anger
15 Communism

A serious problem that destroys societies and countries if not executed properly. It's part of the reason my family's so messed up emotionally and it's pretty messed up.

It takes away any initiative and hance reason for life.

No one understands what it means.

16 Nothing
17 Loss
18 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?

19 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...

20 Magnetism

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
