§ 10. But whether the soul be supposed to exist antecedent to, or coeval with, or some time after the first rudiments of organization, or the beginnings of life in the body; I leave to be disputed by those who have better thought of that matter. I confess myself to have one of those dull souls, that doth not perceive itself always to contemplate ideas; nor can conceive it any more necessary for the soul always to think, than for the body always to move: the perception of ideas being (as I conceive) to the soul, what motion is to the body: not its essence, but one of its operations. And therefore, though thinking be supposed ever so much the proper action of the soul, yet it is not necessary to suppose that it should be always thinking, always in action. That perhaps is the privilege of the infinite author and preserver of things, who never slumbers nor sleeps; but it is not competent to any finite being, at least not to the soul of man. We know certainly by experience that we sometimes think, and thence draw this infallible consequence, that there is something in us that has a power to think; but whether that substance perpetually thinks or no, we can be no farther assured than experience informs us. For to say that actual thinking is essential to the soul, and inseparable from it, is to beg what is in question, and not to prove it by reason; which is necessary to be done, if it be not a self-evident proposition. But whether this, “that the soul always thinks,” be a self-evident proposition, that every body assents to at first hearing, I appeal to mankind. It is doubted whether I thought at all last night or no; the question being about a matter of fact, it is begging it to bring, as a proof for it, an hypothesis, which is the very thing in dispute: by which way one may prove any thing; and it is but supposing that all watches, whilst the balance beats, think; and it is sufficiently proved, and past doubt, that my watch thought all last night. But he that would not deceive himself, ought to build his hypothesis on matter of fact, and make it out by sensible experience, and not presume on matter of fact, because of his hypothesis; that is, because he supposes it to be so: which way of proving amounts to this, that I must necessarily think all last night, because another supposes I always think, though I myself cannot perceive that I always do so.

As a young teenager myself, I agree with the idea of this article, but I can’t say I agree with the idea of not telling girls that they look pretty. I grew up as a total feminist. I always noticed when girls were self-conscious and did my best to display who I was to new people and not what I looked like. With that being said, I liked being told I was pretty. It didn’t make me feel like that was all I had to be in life; it made me feel good about myself. If no one had commented that they liked my hair, or thought my eyes were pretty, I might have started trying to make myself pretty through make-up/ dieting. I hated it when all people talked about was how I looked, but I liked people noticing that I was pretty. The problem with girls is that they don’t think that they are pretty, so the natural solution is to assure them that they are beautiful, not to avoid telling them the truth that they are pretty. I agree that people shouldn’t focus on looks when talking to girls, but mentioning it is fine.
