Group rights are rights held by a group qua group rather than by its members severally; [ 1 ] in contrast, individual rights are rights held by individual people; even if they are group-differentiated, what most rights are, they remain individual rights if the right-holders are the individuals themselves. [ 2 ] Group rights have historically been used both to infringe upon and to facilitate individual rights, and the concept remains controversial. [ 3 ] [ edit ] Overview In Western discourse, individual rights are often associated with political and economic freedom , whereas group rights are associated with social control .
Abstraction is a process by which concepts are derived from the usage and classification of literal ("real" or "concrete") concepts, first principles , or other methods. "An abstraction" is the product of this process – a concept that acts as a super-categorical noun for all subordinate concepts, and connects any related concepts as a group, field, or category . [ 1 ] Abstractions may be formed by reducing the information content of a concept or an observable phenomenon , typically to retain only information which is relevant for a particular purpose.

From a 1899 Yoga manuscript in the Braj Bhasa language. Chakras , in Hindu metaphysical tradition and other belief systems, are centres of Prāṇa , life force, or vital energy . Chakras correspond to vital points in the physical body i.e. major plexuses of arteries, veins and nerves. Texts and teachings present different numbers of chakras. Their name derives from the Sanskrit word for " wheel " or " turning ". [ note 1 ] The concept of chakra features in tantric and yogic traditions of Hinduism and Buddhism .
What chakras are and their psychological properties Chakras are centers of energy, located on the midline of the body. There are seven of them, and they govern our psychological properties.

The Higgs boson or Higgs particle is an elementary particle initially theorised in 1964 , [ 6 ] [ 7 ] and tentatively confirmed to exist on 14 March 2013. [ 8 ] The discovery has been called "monumental" [ 9 ] [ 10 ] because it appears to confirm the existence of the Higgs field , [ 11 ] [ 12 ] which is pivotal to the Standard Model and other theories within particle physics , where it explains why some fundamental particles have mass when the symmetries controlling their interactions should require them to be massless, and—linked to this—why the weak force has a much shorter range than the electromagnetic force .
