Michael Pollan: A plant’s-eye view

Michael Pollan taught us to look at the world with the other creatures’ view. Then everything is different. Maybe we human beings are just plants’ and animals’ servants. When we plant trees and go for the blossom, we are helping them to bear fruits. Maybe we are ‘controlled’ by the tree and it send out a type of flavor to fascinate us. How could we know that we are superior to them? Of course, there is a more scientific explain. However, we can find some different thoughts and perspectives towards the same thing which may be helpful to build a better world.

Another inspiration of this speech is that we should learn to use several views to consider one thing. You may have interesting findings.
