The Tangibles

When we experience life, we typically describe it using terms that are easily understood. So often we use terms that are physical in nature and can be pointed out to others. Terms such as "tall", "bright", "smooth" are commonly used for describing a great number of things. I find these things to be the tangibles.

What makes something tangible? According to Merriam-Webster one definition of the word is "capable of being perceived" which to me means that it is observable and identifiable. Another definition is "substantially real" which means that it contains substance and is real to us.

I believe that the majority of what we describe to others is tangible because it is easily identified and shown as real.
