Vital signs include things like heart rate, blood pressure, temperature. These items are supposed to fall within a normal range. (they don't have an exact number - but a range). If they fall outside the normal range, then the medical professionals begin to look for reasons why.. For example, the bo…dy's natural way to fight some viral or bacterial infections is to raise the temperature of the environment that the virus lives in. Viruses and bacteria are often temperature specific. Therefore a raised temp is a sign that the body may be fighting an invader.. Similarly, changes in blood pressure and heart rate indicate the body is fighting or accomodating something. It can point to heart disease, high colestorol, leaking valves, stroke etc. ( Full Answer )

Francis Bacon's famous essay is replete with opinions and advice such as, "Read not to contradict and confute; nor to believe and take for granted; nor to find talk and discourse; but to weigh and consider." In that instance, and in other opinions throughout the essay, his meaning is not so much und…erlying as it is explicit. It is always possible, and sometimes useful, to extend meanings to situations not evident in an essay. But when Bacon writes, "Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man. And therefore, if a man write little, he had need have a great memory; if he confer little, he had need have a present wit: and if he read little, he had need have much cunning, to seem to know that he doth not," he is not hiding the meaning under any cloak that needs to be lifted. What you may be seeking, when you ask for "underlying meaning," is a precis: a brief, concise summary of Bacon's message. That, I think, you can and ought to develop for yourself. ( Full Answer )
Fantasy books often contain underlying meanings, messages or issues. Depends on what the author wants to explore or get across. For example, the Tamir Trilogy by Lynn Flewelling explores gender identity by having a girl raised as a boy, and totally unaware of this fact until puberty. Then she exp…lores what it would be like to be aware of it mentally but not physically, then in third book, how one might deal with a complete gender change physically. There are other examples. Robin Hobb in the Tawny Man series explores the price of being different and in the Hythrun Chronicles, religious intolerance leads to a corrupt form of government based completely on lies. The Black Magician Trilogy touches on the injustice of prejudice against same sex relationships. This list is long and varied and sometimes the meanings can be very complex like in the The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever by Stephen R. Donaldson or very simple like the rewards of love, loyalty and honor. ( Full Answer )

Unless you created your own existence, meaning is defined by the greater power. Parents describe meaning for children, employers define meaning for employees, teachers give meaning to students, the artist gives meaning to color, the musician to the piano, etc. That fact that humanity did not crea…te humanity means that meaning in society is not ours to define. It is given to us by our creator, the Maker of things, the Definer of meaning. God, the creator of society, has laid it all out in the Bible. Those who understand this will accept God's reasons and meanings and purpose for life, both individual and societal. Those who don't will have to construct their own meanings. This is where it gets interesting. For Hitler, meaning was all about eliminating Jews, as though they were the source of all problems on earth. He was wrong (not only in his conclusion, but fundamentally, in his decision to blow off God and develop his own meaning) and many people suffered accordingly. Non-Biblical systems and forms of meaning always bring suffering to humanity. So, there are only two themes/meanings in society throughout the ages. Those meanings laid out for us by God, and meanings laid out by anti-God, or other-than-God "spinners" of meaning. History speaks for itself. War and death, poverty, starvation, disease and other evidences of societal meaning that is "other-than-Godly," flourish in such societies and their geographic areas. The hell holes of the world abound in "third party meaning and themes." By contrast, the best societies on earth to live in are those who have, at least to a greater degree, accepted the meanings and themes presented in Scripture. I am my brother's keeper, the Great Commandment, the Great Commission, human responsibility to a fierce yet forgiving God (forgiving only because of Jesus) and bearing one another's burdens are some of the themes that have made the most peaceful and productive societies on earth and in history. What has been the common theme underlying various meanings of Society? The answer is a question. Who is God? Jesus or Hitler? Jesus or Caesar? Jesus or Mohammed? Jesus or Stalin? Jesus or money? Jesus or me? Imposters to the throne abound. Cool thing is, no matter what society you find yourself in, you're free to chose. Read the Bible, so you know what's UP. ( Full Answer )

Bipolar disorder (also known as manic depression) causes serious shifts in mood, energy, thinking, and behavior-from the highs of mania on one extreme, to the lows of depression on the other. More than just a fleeting good or bad mood, the cycles of bipolar disorder last for days, weeks, or months. …And unlike ordinary mood swings, the mood changes of bipolar disorder are so intense that they interfere with your ability to function. During a manic episode, a person might impulsively quit a job, charge up huge amounts on credit cards, or feel rested after sleeping two hours. During a depressive episode, the same person might be too tired to get out of bed and full of self-loathing and hopelessness over being unemployed and in debt. The causes of bipolar disorder aren't completely understood, but it often runs in families. The first manic or depressive episode of bipolar disorder usually occurs in the teenage years or early adulthood. The symptoms can be subtle and confusing, so many people with bipolar disorder are overlooked or misdiagnosed-resulting in unnecessary suffering. But with proper treatment and support, you can lead a rich and fulfilling life. Bipolar disorder is a condition in which people go back and forth between periods of a very good or irritable mood and depression. The "mood swings" between mania and depression can be very quick.
