[]The acquisition of ideas is a gradual process, of course.

But men in love with their opinions may not only suppose what is in question, but allege wrong matter of fact. How else could any one make it an inference of mine, that a thing is not, because we are not sensible of it in our sleep? I do not say there is no soul in a man, because he is not sensible of it in his sleep: but I do say, he cannot think at any time waking or sleeping, without being sensible of it. Our being sensible of it is not necessary to any thing, but to our thoughts; and to them it is, and to them it will always be necessary, till we can think without being conscious of it.

[]Everything begins, then, with simple ideas of.

[]Locke had already argued at length that ideas are not on the human mind.

In 1957, the group was also working on the polio virus

National Institutes of Health in the United States for this.

The guideline document on p. 30 says that healthcare workers:

A year ago at Jake’s annual checkup a senior panel was done and his Alk Phos level was elevated at 360. We had follow up 3 and 4 month follow up testing and it was unchanged. No other values were elevated at that time. We had our annual checkup last week and the results of his liver enzyme panel were not good. This time not only was the alk phos elevated to 662 but his ast and alt levels were also elevated, 289 and 687 respectfully. Obviously this was very disheartening as he is clinically asymptomatic. He shows no signs of any problems associated with these results. I immediately got on the internet and started reading to understand more about the potential for liver disease and found your foundation website. I wanted to tap into your experience and knowledge and hopefully get some feedback from you. We have an appointment Monday for xrays. My concern is this is the first time other enzyme levels have been elevated and could this be a fluke or testing error!! I found a round table discussion on this and it suggested repeating the test in 2 to 3 weeks to substantiate the results. I need to have this discussion with my vet and will do so Monday. Another concern is what I am feeding Jake. About six months ago I put him on a raw food diet (Primal). I tried to find info to see if this could be potentiating a liver problem. The only supplements he is on are kelp and a probiotic. I did have him on milk thistle when the initial alk phos level was elevated but only did this for two months. He has been on other nutritional supplements for skin and coat but I stopped those. I forgot he is also on organic coconut oil. There is a local health food store that specializes in dog nutrition and I have been following some of their recommendations for maximizing Jake’s health. Other than this Jake has had occasional ear , skin, and pad issues but for the most part had remained in good health. I might also add we exercise regularly, walking twice a day weather permitting. Needless to say I am quite concerned and any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. I am considering requesting a consult to see an internal vet specialist. I have some other questions about further testing such as serum bile acid. I might also add that I am in medicine myself and knowing what I know about the human element heightens questions and poses trust issues in the care and treatment of Jake!!! I have had some unpleasant vet experiences and just changed vets so at this point my confidence level is being tested and it scares me… Thanks for listening and I look forward to hearing from you.

It was unusually sharp — and illuminating.

§ 1. the ideas, whether simple or complex, that the mind has of things, as they are in themselves, there are others it gets from their comparison one with another. The understanding, in the consideration of any thing, is not confined to that precise object: it can carry any idea as it were beyond itself, or at least look beyond it, to see how it stands in conformity to any other. When the mind so considers one thing, that it does as it were bring it to and set it by another, and carry its view from one to the other: this is, as the words import, relation and respect; and the denominations given to positive things, intimating that respect, and serving as marks to lead the thoughts beyond the subject itself denominated to something distinct from it, are what we call relatives: and the things, so brought together, related. Thus, when the mind considers Caius as such a positive being, it takes nothing into that idea, but what really exists in Caius; v. g. when I consider him as a man, I have nothing in my mind but the complex idea of the species, man. So likewise, when I say Caius is a white man, I have nothing but the bare consideration of a man who hath that white colour. But when I give Caius the name husband, I intimate some other person; and when I give him the name whiter, I intimate some other thing: in both cases my thought is led to something beyond Caius, and there are two things brought into consideration. And since any idea, whether simple or complex, may be the occasion why the mind thus brings two things together, and as it were takes a view of them at once, though still considered as distinct; therefore any of our ideas may be the foundation of relation. As in the above-mentioned instance, the contract and ceremony of marriage with Sempronia is the occasion of the denomination or relation of husband; and the colour white the occasion why he is said to be whiter than free-stone.

According to Locke, certain special simple ideas are acquired by two different senses.

Wilkins was lucky enough to get

§ 10. By what has been said, we may observe how much names, as supposed steady signs of things, and by their difference to stand for and keep things distinct that in themselves are different, are the occasion of denominating ideas distinct or confused, by a secret and unobserved reference the mind makes of its ideas to such names. This perhaps will be fuller understood, after what I say of words, in the third book, has been read and considered. But without taking notice of such a reference of ideas to distinct names, as the signs of distinct things, it will be hard to say what a confused idea is. And therefore when a man designs, by any name, a sort of things, or any one particular thing, distinct from all others, the complex idea he annexes to that name is the more distinct, the more particular the ideas are, and the greater and more determinate the number and order of them is, whereof it is made up. For the more it has of these, the more it has still of the perceivable differences, whereby it is kept separate and distinct from all ideas belonging to other names, even those that approach nearest to it; and thereby all confusion with them is avoided.

Things that can be both seen and touched seem most obviously real to us.

§ 10. The ideas of goblins and sprights have really no more to do with darkness than light; yet let but a foolish maid inculcate these often on the mind of a child, and raise them there together, possibly he shall never be able to separate them again so long as he lives: but darkness shall ever afterwards bring with it those frightful ideas, and they shall be so joined, that he can no more bear the one than the other.
