There are so many definition about nature right? Those are how much nature means for us.
What is nature? What does nature mean to me? How much nature means to me? Nature means so much for me, for us, also for every living things in this universe. In my opinion, nature is my teacher, home, inspiration, mirror, and friend. As a teacher, nature teach us about life. As a home, nature is our place to go back, the place where make us feel comfortable, our palace. As an inspiration, nature inspires us. Nature can As a mirror. Whatever we did to nature, nature will give it back to us. As a friend, nature is a friend that accompany us wherever and whenever we go.
Just like I said before, nature means so much, not only for human but also for all the living things in this universe. Nature is the one who gives us the most important things in our live, oxygen and water. Oxygen (O2) comes from the fusion reaction from our one and only star, sun. At first, after the sun was formed, there was only Hydrogen atom there. Then, the nuclear fusion was occurred and the Helium atom was formed. The nuclear fusion was happen repeatedly and the oxygen and other atoms we know on chemistry were formed. And then, the fusion reaction cause some explosion and then the atoms spread to the earth. It is true that we are born from the stardust. All of the existence in earth or even on the universe came from its stars on each system. The life in earth exist thanks to our star, sun. Our sun is supporting all of the life in this solar system. Can you imagine the life without oxygen? Thanks to nature that we can life comfortably now.
Enough talking about the complicated thingy, we can also see how much nature means to us on things we almost see everyday. Such as pollination of crops. Pollination of crops sometimes did by insects, wind, or even human. It is amazing right when nature is designed the pollination of a plant did by wind. Or even by insects, the insects get food and the plants also get to pollinate.
And the last one is what I think that this is the most amazing thing nature did to us, break down wastes. The living things are already live in this beautiful earth for billions years. Can not you imagine how many wastes there? How tall the piles of billions years wastes we see? When human was not formed yet, how the dinosaurs and the low class creatures throw the wastes? Thanks to our precious and amazing nature, it break down wastes for us.
We must thanks to our nature, things we must do to thanks to our nature :
1. Do not litter
2. Grow local plants
3. Use public transportation
4. Save water
5. Save electricity
And we must not do :
1. Waste water
3. Waste electricity
4. Exploit nature too much
And of course, learning from nature have some benefits :
1. Sharpen our sense
2. Stimulates our imagination
3. Releases worry and stress
4. Sources of inspiration
That is all of my explanation of learning from nature, I hope we can preserve and show gratitude to nature more so our children and grandchildren in the next generations still can enjoy nature and there will no disasters happen again in this world. The conclusion is, we must save nature for a better future!
