Naturalism is the understanding that there is a single, natural world as shown by science, and that we are completely included in it. Naturalism holds that everything we are and do is connected to the rest of the world and derived from conditions that precede us and surround us. Each of us is an unf…olding natural process, and every aspect of that process is caused, and is a cause itself. So we are fully caused creatures, and seeing just how we are caused gives us power and control, while encouraging compassion and humility. By understanding consciousness, choice, and even our highest capacities as materially based, naturalism re-enchants the physical world, allowing us to be at home in the universe. Naturalism shows our full connection to the world and others, it leads to an ethics of compassion, and it gives us far greater control over our circumstances.. Connection - Compassion - Control . Connection: Everything we are and do is completely connected to the rest of the world. Our bodies and minds are shaped in their entirety by conditions that precede us and surround us. Each of us is an unfolding, natural process, and every aspect of that process is caused, and is a cause itself. We are therefore entirely at home in the physical universe.. Compassion: Seeing that we are fully caused creatures - not self-caused - we can no longer take or assign ultimate credit or blame for what we do. This leads to an ethics of compassion and understanding, both toward ourselves and others. We see that there but for circumstances go I. We would have been the homeless person in front of us, the convict, or the addict, had we been given their genetic and environmental lot in life.. Control: Understanding how we are caused to behave as we do gives us increased powers of prediction and control. Instead of supposing people can simply will themselves to be otherwise, we concentrate our energies on creating the conditions which promote constructive personal and social change. The ethics of compassion is matched by a practical efficacy based in scientific knowledge. Now, here's a "trapped in the elevator" speech to give you a bit more detail: . - Introducing Naturalism - . Naturalism, in essence, is simply the idea that human beings are completely included in the natural world: there's nothing supernatural about us. Naturalism is based on science as the best, most reliable means for discovering what exists. Science shows that each and every aspect of a human being comes from and is completely connected to the natural world, and is understandable in terms of those connections.. The naturalist view of ourselves is of course very different from traditional religious or supernatural understandings, and it has profound implications. We don't have souls that continue after death. Instead, we are fully physical creatures, fully caused to be who we are. We don't have free will in the sense of being able to choose or decide without being fully caused in our choices or decisions. Instead, as individuals we are part of the natural unfolding of the universe in all its amazing complexity.. By understanding ourselves as fully caused, and by seeing just how we are caused (by our genetic endowment, upbringing, and social environments), we dramatically enhance our powers of prediction and control, both in our personal lives and in the larger social arena. Naturalism focuses our attention on what works, increasing self-efficacy and encouraging science-based, progressive social policies in areas such as criminal justice, social inequality, behavioral health, and the environment. Also, since we see that we aren't the ultimate originators of ourselves or our behavior, we can't take ultimate credit or blame for what we do. This reduces unwarranted self-righteousness, moral superiority, pride, shame, and guilt. And since we see others as fully caused - for instance substance abusers, criminal offenders, the destitute and homeless - we become less blaming, less punitive and more compassionate and understanding. People don't create themselves, so responsibility for their character and behavior isn't ultimately theirs, but is distributed over the many factors that created them. And after all, were we given their environmental and genetic conditions, we would have become what they are, and acted just as they did: there but for circumstances go I. This insight provides the basis for a naturalistic ethics of empathy and compassion that guides personal behavior and grounds effective social policy.. As mentioned above, naturalism is premised on taking science as our way of knowing about the world, not tradition, intuition, sacred texts or pronouncements. By illuminating the causal connections between phenomena, science inevitably unifies what it discovers into a single, natural, multifaceted whole. If we take science seriously with regard to ourselves and our behavior, we are led to the conclusion that human beings are fully included in the natural world, and that we are completely physical creatures. More and more, biology and neuroscience show that the brain and body do everything that the soul was supposed to do. Even consciousness and our higher level capacities for rationality and choice are fully embodied, causal processes.. Some might conclude from this that naturalism reduces human beings to mere mechanisms, mere automatons, but this doesn't follow. What follows is that the physical universe has produced, in us, marvelously complex and adaptive organisms, with the capacity for self-reflection, wonder, suffering, and joy. Far from mechanizing humanity, naturalism re-enchants the physical world by showing how consciousness and choice don't involve supernatural processes. They are natural processes, understandable by science. Amazingly enough, physical existence produces all these intricate phenomena quite nicely on its own.. By acknowledging our origins in evolution, the naturalist perspective also enhances our feeling of kinship with the other species with which we share this planet, and our desire to sustain and nurture the planet itself. All sentient beings, including humanity, owe their existence to conditions that extend far beyond us in space and time. Seeing this, we find ourselves completely at home in the universe, full-fledged participants in the unfolding natural order. (MORE)

The word you're looking for is "Primal." Correction: 'Basic nature' is a noun phrase, but 'primal' is an adjective. If you are happy with the connotations of 'primal', the form you need is 'primality'.
It means the note should be played as written disregarding the key sign. Also, by convention, sharps and flats are "sticky" within a measure; the natural sign resets those as well.
This means that two things are similar yet exact opposite. For example picture two 10 gallon fish tanks.One has a colorful habitat and the other is barren (empty). Would you agree they are the same? Perhaps, however their contents make them opposite in nature.
Not the only means, consider drift and flow, but it is the only driver of the evolutionary complexity of adaption we see around us.
No, actually, "The Nature of Being" was not the title of a MontyPython film :-) Being, or existence, may be something that we are accustomed totaking for granted. But, does existence exist, or is all of life adream that only 'I' am dreaming? Even if it is merely a dream, thenthe dream exists. But, i…f existence is, then where does its is-nesscome from?! Just what is existence?? Are all 'types' of existencefundamentally the same? (We had better be careful not questionexistence right out of existence!!) Those are all questions about the nature of being. A comprehensiveand working definition or description of being, or existence, wouldbe an analytical or functional account of existence itself. And, ina nutshell, that is just what is meant by this abstract notion,the-nature-of-being. To hold an enquiry into the nature of being is like me asking ofyou, "Please explain to me in terms I can understand, what humanconsciousness is - how it works." How might you start to answersuch a question? Even the hottest philosophers do not know how tobegin to address an issue like that. We would at least need to raise our own human consciousness to ahigher state if we wanted a chance to study self-awareconsciousness at an analytical level. That might ultimately beachieved through a lifestyle of keeping an open mind, spiritualreading, and meditation. Human beings apparently can, and typicallydo, 'mature' through several different levels of spiritualawareness even in one lifetime. Traditionally, the nature of being has been the subject of a branchof Metaphysics; more specifically, of the abstract and theoreticalfield called 'Ontology'. In that purely philosophical arena, basiccategories, qualities and features of being or existence have beenpostulated and debated. This has become a vast and complex fieldtaking in a lot of minute, hair-splitting debate and many points ofcontention. The subject of existence/being has raised a number ofdeep and important problems in metaphysics, the philosophy oflanguage, and philosophical logic. As of now, there are nosatisfactory philosophical accounts of existence. The presented question, however, is being asked within theparticular context of Religion and Spirituality (and notphilosophy) so that should remain the focal context for thisanswer. All of existence may be summed up as Life/the-Universe. Okay; then,what is Life/the Universe? One suggestion would be, "God", sinceLife, or the Universe, is both physical and spiritual (which in thebroad sense means mental). And while God is knowable in as much asall of us are one with God, yet God is utterly mysterious in thesense that there is an infinite amount that we have yet toexperience of God and of ourselves. The nature of being (that is, the nature of God) is thus a wideopen subject. "I am that I am; I will be what I will be; I aminexhaustible possibility - the alpha and the omega, beginning andend, the all-in-all." God is over all and through all, yet remainsinfinitely mysterious! That is good; it is as it should be, for itmeans that we, God's offspring, have an infinite amount of excitingand rewarding unfolding and evolving ahead of us. During the course of our lives we naturally experience manydifferent states of being. Up until now these states of being,whether enjoyed or not enjoyed by humankind, have very largely beenturned on and off unconsciously. What is not yet widely known isthat, for spiritual (i.e., sentient and self-aware) beings, likeourselves, the states of being that we experience may beconsciously and deliberately chosen by us. We can voluntarilyswitch our own (inner) states of being. This has enormous implications for each and every one of us and forour world as a whole. It means that, as individuals and as acommunity we can change the nature of human being -- we canactually change the features and qualities of our own being. The states of being that we consciously or unconsciously choose forourselves utterly change and define our lives, either for thebetter or for the worse. Moreover, those individual choices haveknock-on effects on the states of being of the whole of our society(= our whole world). To sum that up, we human beings have an enormous potency that isnot widely realised: Each one of us can directly and creativelyparticipate in producing truly happy lives for ourselves and forthe entirety of the world's population. Do we want a world that is enduringly peaceful, harmonious andhappy? Certainly, we do! We can create that world, not by deliberately attempting to alterour behaviours, but, by changing what we choose to be. And the onlyway to change what we are -- to truly change the nature of ourbeing -- is to creatively revise our rock-bottom beliefs about whoand what we are. This may sound scary to some of us but this can beachieved in a gradual and tentative manner. Solid root beliefs give us strong and enduring motivation -- andsuch motivation can be evoked for constructive purposes orotherwise. (Notice how young terrorists are being stronglymotivated.) It is therefore in our best interests to nurture and develop aspirituality that is expansive, inclusive, positive and creativerather than one that is narrow, exclusive, hostile, negative anddestructive. Each one of us has the freedom, and thus theresponsibility, to steward and nurture our own spirituality. Eachindividual has it within their self to be, and to remain, their ownspiritual authority. This freedom remains ours forever -- neitherpain nor death can change that. Refuse to take mundane existence for granted; not because one dayexistence might escape you, but for the reason that there are a lotmore things in Heaven and Earth than have so far been dreamt of inhuman philosophy!

unfortunately, i don't know. It is the same as saying what is the cause of, or what is the root source of. In other words, explain your problem in detail...get to the bottom of it...the nature..true issue at hand.
People mean tha when they learn something they only have to learn it once.For example if a brass instrument is being shown how to be put together the person wouldn't be needed to be explained twice.
NO! I am on number 6, and 7, (these two are rescues), and I have to say no. They are not the best with other dogs, so socializing is key here. Now, I also have to say that they are very unique from other breeds of dogs, in that they are very sensative, and smart. And, they have a certain "intensity"…, and require a lot of loyalty, as that is what they give. You cannot short change them. Or, fool them. They know when your not honest with them. Really. And their learning capacity is phenominal. I am still often surprised at the level of communication they exhibit, from day to day. Now, I read in a book, somewhere, that the origin of the American, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, which is the most popular of the 4 types, was actually called a "nanny" dog, and it's original purpose was to "mind" the children, while the parents went out to farm the fields. And, their "toughness", was bred into them, because they were sometimes up against some pretty tough "wild" animals, and again, were to protect the children. Now, I can see all of that being true, just due to the way mine, over the years, have reacted to situations. In other words, even though the two I have are still puppies, (about 8 months) and are still a little "rowdy", as puppies will be, I can explain to them, yes with words, the situation, and they are responsive, and respectful, when an elderly person, or child, or even an injured roomate is around, thus settling down, and actually becomming "protective" of that individual, or situation. Now when they get out, as they do from time to time, I can tell a difference in their behavior when together, or seperated. Actually the female, is more the instigator, dragging the male into situations he would not normally be in. So, since they are a pack animal, ina pack, they are more antogonistic. And, yes, they can fight, better than any other dog, in the world. Over the years, they have matched them against every other breed, and they have not been beaten. Now, if they are beaten, hit, or otherwise abused, or whatch that happen to another, they just might develop an attitude. Disloyal owners will cause the same thing. They are what is considered a "working" dog. So, they need to stay busy, and have responsibilities. And, they are proud, and do not take to even a lot of verbal abuse. And, they recognize their own breed, and somewhat "snub", or are annoyed with other breeds and really should not be mixed. Now, I have to say this. As with any other dog, if you do not know it, do not approach it without the owner present. Any dog can be dangerous, especially running on their own. Pits are "homebodies", and though they escape, they are confused, afraid, and stressed. They will be more apt to attack, out of fear. The dog catcher brought my two home the other day, and she said she didn't have to use any equiptment, at all. They were friendly to her, and cooperative. It is all in the owners, and upbringing. It is sad, however, some people that get them, are not of a level of inteligance, or, have the proper morals, to raise them. If every one were professionally raised, then adopted out, there would be a lot less stories in the paper. And, some of it is mystique. Another book I read about them, printed in the 50"s, by the way, talks about how over the years, the viscious ones with bad temperment, have been weeded out, and not allowed to breed. I know that their breeding has been closely gaurded until just recently. And, I do know that they have been having some trouble, recently, with the "blue nose". That is from bad breeding, as people are controlling them down their exact markings, for an "extra" buck. Money. Pathetic. I have two "red nose", the toughest, that were abused, sleeping in bed, with me, every night, and I only feel safer. If my Grandparents needed a dog, they would have one of these...........Chuck.

The adjective meant what it means today. But there was also a noun, "a natural" which meant a dim-witted person. Such a person is as nature made him and lacks the sophistication of civilization.
