TOK Reflection #2: Sense Perception

Even though there are problems with our perceptual systems, this doesn’t mean that knowledge gained from our senses is completely unreliable.

Knowledge gained from our senses may not always be unreliable. Just like many natural sciences, if you have enough trials, you can detect the reliability. In this case, if you have multiple witnesses that all give the same result from their senses, one can infer that the knowledge gained is reliable. Although even from individuals, we can assume that the knowledge gained from our senses is not completely unreliable.

IB Learner Profile Trait #5: Caring

I have done many things to try and be as caring as possible to others. I find that if you do not treat others the way you want to be treated, you do not feel as satisfied with yourself. I once did a bake sale within the school to try and earn money and donate for kids in need. Not only that but I once joined a beach cleanup to try and help the environment as I believe to not only treat people well, but the environment well.
