To act of being human is to balance between multiple probabilities and outcomes. Sometimes we have to avoid these outcomes, but at other times it seems we should pursue them relentlessly, to better understand and appreciate life.

Author Bill Bryson once claimed “that we may be the living universe’s supreme achievement and its worst nightmare simultaneously”. This belief is valid to an extent, as humans are capable of doing both good and evil.

And pollution is one of the most prominent support…...

The realms of magic, religion and science appear to have been entangled if one analyzes the ancient or primitive worlds of mankind. If someone is bold enough to attempt to define each of the terms, one may find that certain events or actions may be applied to more than one of the definitions, which obviously causes problems in their distinctions. For example, Iroquois Indians would remedy scurvy with the bark of an Arbor tree. In their social setting, a magical…...

So a basic condition to talk about morality is that we have a free will. In every day life we…...

Introduction Stowaways have been a problem to shipowners for about as long as there have been ships in the sea. In the early days of sailing ships and looser maritime legislation, this was a relatively minor problem. This probably had to due with the fact that the ships were smaller in comparison to today's standards, and were comparatively heavily crewed. Thus the chances for a stowaway to get on board and go undiscovered for any length of time were fairly…...

This descent into horror culminates at the tragic conclusion, where both the innocent and the guilty die for other's mistakes and lack of judgment. Lear declares that he is 'more sinn'd…...
