    GENONYMOUS TERMS

    The word genonymous comes from Greek genesis (origin) and onoma (name).
    Genonymous terms are those that are related because some contain the previous one in its definition.

    In Biology:

    1- Cell is the essential microscopic unit of living beings.
    2- A tissue is each of the structures of cells of identical nature and origin that together perform a certain function in living organisms.
    3- An organ is any of the parts of the body of a living being composed of tissues that play a differentiated function

    I saw a Japanese movie once in which every celestial body was called a "star" - earth was a "star". Maybe Google Translate is letting you down.

    (You defined "star" as a "celestial body that shines with its own light." A satellite doesn't.)

    OK. Thanks for the observation. I did not realize the error. It was due to the google translator.

    Wouldn't it be better to do that by interacting with other minds instead of just staying in its own spin cycle?

    Not really, but it explains things quite well.

    Like sideshowbob sort of said, maybe one question at a time to discuss?
