to know what it was about since there weren t any descriptions online Further, to justify my use of this book, I was going to write a book but my willpower was sapped because too many people thought whatever I put online encompassed the whole of my thought, which doesn t make sense or is irrational illogical , so that I spend the majority of my time justifying my past actions instead of focusing on the future and writing new stuff, which doesn t seem likely since I can predict it ll just make the audience mad or disappointed that I left something out This is one of those wordy English books that just compares science to fairy tales to make it seem less boring to kids If you read this your general science factoids will grow greatly Anyone can use this book The final sections of plants and flower pollination with interspecies coordination from the bees was the best part You don t need to read this but if you do, you ll learn a new thing or two.This is one of the earliest books related to fairies from around the turn of modern civilization, published 1878, nine years before A Study In Scarlet While I consider it a decent book, I didn t take away too much from having read it, already having been educated on the general science it uses as its subject from university When I came across this book online, I was already studying fairies Having read Sherlock Holmes, I was familiar with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle s The Coming of the Fairies and other books such as the Faerie Queene already This book isn t really about fairies butso explains scientific concepts, and alludes to the spirituality some observe from it as faerie, which according to Spenser, is glory This definition connects it with the fairy faith and the Kabbalistic concept of God s Glory as found in this world There is no reference claiming it to be a feminine principle In Gawain and the Green Knight the Green Knight s marvel causes the Gawain Poet to attribute it and the shock it induced on Arthur s court as fayrye, or fairy, translated as magic In the King Arthur class I took in college, we didn t have to read the Faerie Queene Some use it as their favorite Arthurian romance just because it has the words Faerie and Queene in the title, as if having read it as earlier as possible nets you additional feminism points The contents of this book are ten lectures I The Fairy Land of Science How to Enter it How to Use it And how to Enjoy itII SunbeamsIII The Aerial Ocean in which we liveIV A drop of water on its travelsV The two great sculptors water and iceVI The Voices of Nature and how we hear themVII The Life of A PrimroseVIII The History of a Piece of CoalIX Bees in the HiveX Bees and FlowersWhile it s common for science books to review how molecules work, this isn t where I heard my first explanation of it or where I based my main viewpoint That privilege belongs to Life in the Universe, which is a book from a class I took in college, at community college, from an astrobiology course Through that, I applied the concepts of aerobia and anaerobia, and how as aerobic organisms, air to us is a mixture of oxygen, carbon, nitrogen, and argon During our planet s early development all the anaerobic organisms died out because they were corroded by the oxygen they didn t use Oxygen ended up predominating because there were too many green plants utilizing photosynthesis, which produces oxygen as a byproduct There are forces around us, and among us, which I shall ask you to allow me to call fairies, and these are ten thousand timeswonderful,magical, andbeautiful in their work, than those of the old fairy tales They, too, are invisible, and many people live and die without ever seeing them or caring to see them These people go about with their eyes shut, either because they will not open them, or because no one has taught them how to see.Buckley, Arabella B 2004 05 01 The Fair There are forces around us, and among us, which I shall ask you to allow me to call
