I am a 16-year-old girl who enjoy philosophy very much. I am now studying college in US and I have taken a philosophy class. Here is 2 questions I've got today. Can anyone of you give me some suggestions? Of course, it's just for my interest and DEFINITELY, I will not copy any of your idea. Thank you.
1. Why is ignorance a condition to be overcome, in the Upanishads? what is the importance of the metaphysical?
2. Compare and contrast Brahman and Tao; why are both metaphysical notions and not clear ideas?
