“One touch of nature makes the whole world kin”-William Shakespeare. The relationship between humans and nature is that we are a part of nature. As per the study of human evolution, scientists discovered a wealth of evidence that shows how closely we are related to the other primates. We humans are an animal species: primate order: mammalian class: vertebrate sub-phylum. The study of Human genetics gave a proof that we are connected to each other and also to other organisms which are part of nature. The Earth is a natural thing, with all earthly inhabitants originated on earth naturally, that means we as humans are natural.
Without animals, humans would not be humans. Animals and humans co-exist together for a reason. Animals need humans, and humans need animals. There has been many stories of animals that change humans forever. One example is Temple Grandin, a high-functioning autistic woman whose life was extremely influenced by animals. She could see animals in ways others couldn't. She knew how to help the animals, and the animals helped her, too. Many people have stories similar to hers, and it's no surprise considering animals have always been such an important part of the development of the human
The beautiful blossoms that bloom in Californian spring, the summer daisies alongside the cooling lake, long after the summer the trees have lost their leaves entering autumn to fresh white snow out in the mountains. Nature is able to show us its true beauty without any falseness and modifications. After all, is it not ironic how people go to museums to look at paintings of colorful flowers, green hills, and clear water streams; those are beauties that can easily be observed in real life outside of the urban environment which are surrounded by them, or how people buy recordings of the calming sounds of nature, similar to what you would listen to at night in the woods or smell nature aromas of the candles. What we are doing is trying to mislead our minds and pretend to think that we are in the woods but are instead cornered inside our small, well-furnished, and full -with-technology apartment.
It is for these reasons that humans have a relationship with nature. We rely on nature for shelter, resources, genetic variation, and mutations in genetics that have led people to evolve the way they have. We also rely on weather to be safe and to also allow humans to plant and grow things that need to be grown. Without nature taking course just right everything as we know it could be completely different "Natural
Wildlife is a big part of our environment. It’s a part of our food sources, clothing (wool), even our own entertainment (pets). Prey can be a good food sources for us too. For example deer and cattle, they give us meat. Meat is “the flesh of an animal as food” (dictionary.com). Sheep are great for food and clothing, their meat for food and their wool for clothes. “The fine soft curly or wavy hair forming the coat of a sheep” (dictionary.com). Animals are a huge portion of everyone’s lives.
The outdoors is hidden to many people around the world. All many see is the huge skyscrapers and whitewash walls of the cities. These people don’t tend to be as happy because there isn’t a stress reliever, or a place to get away to. They need this place so that they can have some time to just relax, learn, and develop true happiness. The outdoors is an escape for those who know it and are available to experience it on a regular basis. These places can be the Great Redwood Forests and Lake Almanor in California, to Canada’s vast river and lake systems, to the fields of Kansas, and the mountains of New Zealand. All of these places have one thing in common, the freedom to live. So many city dwellers don’t get to experience these things, which rural people hold to so dearly. The constant hustle and bustle of the city tends to keep people from their happiness. The stress of city life has a way to go “out the window” when you spend time outside with yourself and nature. The ones who can experience the life in the
A question I have for you is how you do see humans in relations to Nature? Nature is a vague term, and the way you emphasize people to embrace its simplicity implies humans were apart from Nature to begin with. This inherently
Humans are animals. Even as developed, personalized, and intelligent as we are, we share a deep connection with every living thing. However, many of the problems in the world result from the human belief that technology is more powerful and can replace the serene, perfect essence of nature. I believe that a connection with nature can heal wounds and help humans find balance in their lives.
The sad injustice to nature is that man has forgotten the biotic connection between the natural world and humanity. Whether protecting nature is a spiritual experience or simply a means for survival, nature is as much a part of human life as the human themselves. The separation created by modern environmentalism between human and non-human entities can only be reunited if people learn to view life as a part of nature. The scary part about that thought, however, is will that be enough now? Only time can
We are a part of nature however we are its greatest enemy. Since the dawn of time humans starting inventing. We strive to make our lives easier but at what cost? Our connection to the world we live in has become increasingly distant because there is not a close connection between humans and nature. By neglecting our relationships with nature we suffer personal consequences such as missing out on earth's beauty, activities, and living a healthy life.
As a child, I unraveled nature’s beauty and existence. Each new experience brought me feelings of excitement and joy, sparkling my imagination and igniting my curiosity. It all seemed so large back then. Oceans appeared endless as they reached towards the horizon. Treetops seemed to make friends with the puffy-looking clouds as they soared to the sky. Over the years however, as I have grown older and life has become more complex, I am beginning to think less and less about the natural world around me. I glimpse sunset stuck in rush-hour traffic trying to return school after debate practices and only listen to the pitter-patter of the rain when there’s a storm outside. Forests and oceans seemed less appealing as they became intertwined with the urban development. In a way, I was becoming more and more distanced from the so-called nature. So, with an overwhelming desire for adventure and to escape the masses, my family and I drove to Big Bend National Park in Southwest Texas last summer.
In life we are all confronted with the idea of nature along with society. Although both have their pros and cons they work together to give us freedom and order among individuals.
Nature is a beautiful location where animals and plants live in unison, being untouched by humans. The human population, however has the ability to take and abuse nature.
The first thing comes to mind when discussing about nature is a pure sanctuary that is untouched, remote, and wild. The general perception will agree that nature is the phenomena of the physical world collectively, including plants, animals, the landscape, and other features and products of earth, as opposed to humans or human creations. However, there is misconception with the definition. Nature is not merely a wilderness life and transcendent landscape. Are we human also nature? If yes, how do we fit in the scheme of nature? This same question challenges the perception about nature in general.
Animals have benefitted us since the beginning of time. Today we use them for food and many other things. Before vehicles we used donkeys and horses to transport goods. We even used birds to deliver messages and now we use dogs to smell out drugs and even explosives. Without animals we would have a lot more problems that humans would not be able to solve. In ancient Egypt animals were worshiped.
