In “How Flowers Changed the World” by Loren Eiseley is described the Earth as a barren. Deserted planet hundred million years ago, just likes Mars. After millions of years, a new greener Earth presence appeared on the platforms of the continent and there were still no flowers at all. About one hundred million years ago, “just a short time before the close of the Age of Reptiles” (360) there occurred a “violent explosion” (360) a mystery happened. Flowers appeared and changed the face of the planet. The Evolution of the planet takes thousand millions of years.

Nevertheless, within a short period of existence, the creature learns human language, develops survival skills, and thinks critically on his own accord. The creature accomplishes these feats with various means of indirect education.

There are many symbols in A Raisin in the Sun worth describing, but one that particularly stands out is Mama’s plant. It is old and barely a substantial piece of nature, yet it makes many vital appearances in the play. The small plant seems to personify Mama’s stubborn nature in its intent on survival despite its close to death appearance. It also represents Mama’s dream that seems close to being crushed, yet never dies. As a whole, the plant is an extension of Mama’s character and an important symbol in the play.
Hope Jahren’s Lab Girl is a memoir divided into three parts about her role as a scientist, friend, mother, and lover. In the book, Jahren gives intimate details into her childhood, years as a student, professor in three separate universities, wife to a brilliant mathematician and as a mother to a boy.

Another example of how immigrants are mistreated is usually when they come to America. Although America is usually advertised as a “safe heaven” or “land of opportunity”, it could also be a very cruel and difficult place for foreigners to try and fit in. There was a part in the infamous book Of Mice and Men written by John Steinbeck where Crooks was not allowed to play cards or even sit at the same table as the other men because he was black (not originally from America). This example depicts how poorly immigrants can be treated in a so-called “land of opportunity”. The novel The Bean Trees written by Barbara Kingsolver contains yet another great example. When Esperanza and Estevan came to America they did NOT get the freedom they were hoping
In this chapter I learned that from ancient times people longed to discover other worlds.
I can see them. I can truly see them. A plant that looks lifeless, like a barren desert, is actually fuller of life than you can imagine. Its leaves are razor sharp, but they lack strength. They spin around in a constant non-stop motion. The stems move like one. It is a warrior plant. Its enemy is even more rousing to meet. They are the enemy of every urban plant (plants that live in the city); they are dogs. Although they look “cute”, dogs are voracious beings with their huge, white, sharp teeth; they bite away everything in their path. The monstrous dog attacks the plant who swiftly dodges, but its luck will eventually run out for that the plant can’t harm someone so powerful. The dog finally lands a hit with its majestic paws. Consequently, some of the plant’s leaves begin to fall while I quiver in fear of what might happen to it, then I realize I am powerful enough to stop them. I build up determination within me and conclude the dog’s crazy frenzy by taking him away from the plant with all my might while I leave it to rest. The plant is just outside my house, so I decided to keep the ferocious dog inside.
This essay will discuss the statement by William James, “-whilst part of what we perceive comes through our senses but another part (and it may be the larger part) always comes out of our head.” (James, 1890). This excerpt relates to the topic of perception, which can be defined as the acquisition and processing of sensory information to see, hear, taste, or feel objects, whilst guiding an organism’s actions with respect to those objects (Sekuler & Blake, 2002). Every theory of perception begins with the question of what features of the surrounding environment can be apprehended through direct pickup (Runeson et al. 2000). Is it only vague elemental cues that are available, and development and expansion through cognitive processes is required
