A Thesis on the Philosophy of Life

Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental questions about the meaning of life and the best way to live it. It examines existence, reality, knowledge, values, reason, mind, language and what happens upon death.

Quite recently, I was introduced to 'Stoic Philosophy' by a good friend. He loaned me his book 'How to be a Stoic' by Massimo Pigliucci. It was a complex read of over 200 pages and quite time consuming. I learned a lot, but I was taking so many notes that I decided to write a thesis on my 'Life Experiences and Stoicism' as an exercise. It was quite an effort to condense what I had learned into 28 pages but I think it is worth reading.

Mediation can take many forms and the impact of smooth music on the mind enables the listener to achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable state. It is an excellent way to ease anxiety, anger, depression and loneliness.
