Examples of exist in a Sentence

  1. Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer:

    The military capabilities in EU member countries do exist, the key question for the future of the European security and defence police is how we finally use our military capabilities together.

  2. William James:

    The whole drift of my education goes to persuade me that the world of our present consciousness is only one out of many worlds of consciousness that exist.

  3. Erik Denison:

    To solve this problem, it needs to start with the coaches, in particular, challenging language and, most importantly, not using that language or behavior themselves, we often find that male coaches continue to use homophobic language and teach conformity to this tough masculine athlete identity that doesn't really exist.

  4. Teerapa Pirohakul:

  5. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    1. We feel like we are drowning We feel like we are drowning and dissolving in nonsense, as if scattering in inevitability, we cease to exist. And feel the meaning. We stop breathing, choking on inevitability. 2. Life is literally everywhere Life is literally everywhere. All this looks like a single mechanism. Systematic movement of impulses, instincts. One network of karma. It is an endless tunnel of life. Where all destinies are linked to each other. All this is at home like microcircuits of society. In this I see a new manifestation of the universe of life. 3. Do you hear jazz You hear jazz. How the music sounds piercing your mind and thinking. Jazz is an energy that dissolves your brain and throws your thoughts into the abyss. As if the cigarette smoke is all that remains of our thoughts that burn out in us. This is the mood of the soul. This is the silence of the city and the romance of life. 4. Not being collected within is life within. Fauna of wild instincts that devour each other. Flora of emotions and feelings. Romantic landscapes of impressions. The evolution of thinking in one century. 5. Corporate giants Corporate giants are drifting away from reality. Cynicism forms levitation in them, progress forms in us oblivion in egoism. Cynicism is a low intellect in which we supposedly have to earn the recognition of a fool. Floating buildings are pure cynicism. It is levitation in dreams of greatness. Many of their own universe of skyscrapers are being formed where each floor is a stage of cynicism and blindness of the spirit. The universe is losing the basis of spiritual thinking. 6. Thinking is Thinking is a philosophical blender for awareness. It is insight that brings healing to our minds. 7. The brain as the basis of the technocracy of logic. It forms the details and the process of knowing the experience. 8. The brain is a looking glass of instincts. A mirror that distorts the truth with a vivid imagination of fear. Only love is a bridge with the outside world. 9. Lonely people move in the void of nonsense. 10. We endure a whole storm of illusions within ourselves. A storm born of fear and despair. Like an explosion leading into hyperspace where hundreds of millions of fear scenarios are played. It’s like cinema, and you are a screenwriter who endures it as if wears virtual glasses.
