Search or Searching is the act of trying to find something or someone. One can distinguish between two forms of search. One may search for an item that is known to exist, with the intent to locate it, and one may search for an item whose existence is uncertain, in order to ascertain whether it exists or not. Searching can also be a metaphorical act, most frequently in reference to intangibles such as memories and emotions.
