Sample text

A parent has a conception of a proper act or product and dislikes the appearance of an improper one. The evidence for such standards is twofold. g. , trying to improve their performance of a chosen activity. Second, humans seek to improve their appearance. The mirror is where they begin their day, combing their hair, applying makeup, etc. That humans have mental representations of preferred actions or appearances is suggested not only by the demands they make on themselves but by the corrections they make of children when teaching them.

Symbols became more and more artificial as people became familiar with representing things symbolically. Imitative sounds became transformed into words; imitative sketches of things that were drawn on cave walls became transformed into written symbols that lost their imitative connection to things. The spoken and written word for bird have lost all physical resemblance to the bird they represent. And this is a useful development: The more artificial the symbol, the more efficient it is to communicate.
