The Human Body and Cultural Differences

A typically subconscious form of behaviour, body language is an inherent part of how we communicate. Even animals do it. With the thought and consideration us humans put in to which words we choose to use and how we go about saying them (some more than others), it might be surprising to learn that only around seven percent of a person’s total communication with others is actually verbal and therefore conscious. Whilst we can fake the odd physical display of emotion, for the most part, over ninety percent of what we feel or think is revealed unwittingly in the form of body language.

Whales: You and me baby, ain’t nothing but mammals

There exists a broad variety of marine-dwelling mammal species we collectively refer to as “whales”. As humans, we are often in awe of these giants of the sea. Organised boat journeys take hundreds of thousands of tourists each year out to the ocean on board a rocking boat specifically designed or modified for that exact type of excursion. Some are lucky enough to witness the creature expel their warm, moist stale air (with a little bit of mucus and extra water for good measure) as it is forced with alarming pressure from the blowhole on top of their hefty heads. Others may even be blessed with the serendipity of a breach or lunge. Given that the distinction between the two is an arbitrary one; let’s just call it a “jump”. Either way, people love whales despite only a dabbling understanding at best.
The point is, we go in search of a creature who earns our attentive fascination not only through sheer size, but due to the fact that it spends more than ninety percent of its time below the surface of the water, beyond our eyesight and consciousness. So let’s learn a bit more about our ample aquatic friends and see if we can find any similarities despite the fact we are finless and whales sans legs.

29 Untouched Corners Of The Earth Where You Can Completely Abandon Civilization

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to get back out to nature, to turn off the screens and step out of the AC. To be able to say that there’s literally no one around for miles.
