Coming Full Circle

For this week's in-class activity, I drew a map representing the major ideas that we had learned this quarter so far. We started off with learning about the unique social and cultural makeup of pencils and even exploring its molecular composition and how this molecular identity could be interpreted and applied to various different things. This led us to our section on Quantum Space, which talked about the uncertainty and serendipity of various aspects of life and experiences, which stressed the idea of interpretation as well as broadening our horizons with free exploration. We saw this free exploration in the form of our mushroom hunters and bread making chapters, and were encouraged to find and form more connections with ourselves and the world around us. I found that the material formed a cycle that was connected to our innate creativity, ourselves, and the spontaneous serendipity that we use daily as we go about our lives.
