Do We Have An Essence?
When the question of whether or not people have an "essence" was raised in class, I was extremely confused. I had never really known exactly what essence was, so I did a little research. Apparently, essence refers to the nature or quality of something that determines its character. With this in mind, I really thought about if essence could be an actual physical thing or not. I do not think it is. I think "essence" is just a word used to describe the characteristics of someone or something, so it cannot be taken away, or destroyed, or calculated. In turn, you cannot have or not have an essence, because its simply an adjective.
