Thesis, antithesis and synthesis

Do not be scared of these three strange words.
This just means an idea, its opposite,
 and the combination of both.
It will taught in philosophy when you're older.
But life forces us to choose steadily
since that we are children.
So this could be useful. Solution may be a fusion.
    The thesis is an idea.
    The antithesis is its opposite.
    The synthesis is the combination.
Perhaps with an example you'll understand.

This new tool to make lists your things  can be
 a fruitful application in the information age.

Laterality and Directionality

When Flykit wants to do things like the humans
with their new hands and feet sometimes he has problems.
He has confusion between the right and left
 because everything is new to him.

It is important to know which side of the body has dominance.
  Being left handed or right changes situations.
Some tools such as scissors are different in each case.

The best solution is to practice if the confusions
 are in movement coordination.
In simple actions such as walking or running 
you can observe your body.

When moving the right foot is accompanied by the left hand and vice versa.
Look at this video about the walk cycle.

In more complex actions such as swimming or cycling 
you can get to improve your coordination,
 balance and respiration while having fun.

Whatever your favorite sport or dancing 
are good for improving your body schema.

You can also improve your synchronization of movements
 when you practice team sports or competition sport.
