    The world looks so different after learning science.

    For example, trees are made of air, primarily. When they are burned, they go back to air, and in the flaming heat is released the flaming heat of the sun which was bound in to convert the air into tree. And the ash is the small remnant of the part which did not come from air, that came from the solid earth, instead.

    These are beautiful things, and the content of science is wonderfully full of them. They are very inspiring, and they can be used to inspire others.
