Added Change vs. Natural Change

I fount the 13th thesis to be particularly interesting as I can see it in what is happening in the world today. The 13th thesis suggests that the amount of energy in and around earth is constant, and it cannot be changed. I can then take different forms by being converted into different releases and absorptions. To me that reflects the extremely intense Atlantic tropical storm season in 2020. The storms in the Atlantic Ocean have been far more frequent this year and more intense as well, therefore reflecting the increased amount of energy that is being dissipated and absorbed in the world. Based on the thesis, that extra energy is a conversion from energy stored in more stable things, such as oil reserves or trees. The destruction and emission of those stable energy reserves results in more energy in the atmosphere. The extra energy is then dissipated to the ground through storms and other weather events. This tropical storm season is yet another example of the irregularity cause by unnatural human energy releases into the atmosphere.

The one that seemed to kind of be in opposition to 13 was 3, where it says that nature should never be a “given”. Thesis 3 says that change in nature always happens, and it is an ever-evolving thing, whereas 13 says it does not. The important distinction that makes the two theses agree with each other is that energy amount is constant, but how the energy is used and distributed is always evolving. 13 caters more to the idea that humans as a part of nature accelerated changes in it as a result of activity, whereas 3 says that nature would have changed regardless of human action through things like evolution. The two compliment each other well as they encompass ideas on how humans within nature can change it compared to how it would change without additional human input.
