the belief that life is a cycle that causes suffering.
Suffering is perpetuated by roughly 3 things:
1.birth
2.life
3.death

Through meditation, one can free themselves of this cycle by reaching
nirvana.
It also extends to the fact that everything in life comes from all other things, and that those things came from something else and etc.
Example of the suffering cycle:

-A bird dies, and the body's nutrients decay into the ground.
-A berry bush is planted at the same location years later.
-Someone eats a berry from the bush, which in turn is eating the nutrients from the bird.
-This perpetuates life and essentially the suffering cycle.

You can apply this idea towards: space, recycling, and even humans.

A deaf 18th century composer who "heard" notes in their head by feeling the vibrations from the piano. Rivals even the "great" Mozart, and ushered in a new era of classical music called romanticism. Popular works that are remixed now include: 5th Symphony, Moonlight Sonata, and Fur Elise.
Beethoven wrote the Moonlight Sonata on the piano for a female student that he loved dearly.
