response to Humans and Nature through Memory and Encoding

ally's picture

The passage wrote about the connection between plant and human. From Lloyd’s words, they discovered the strong and supportive bond between Momoko and plants. They stated the definition of the word “memory” and analyzed the process of forming, recalling memory, elaborating the how plants supports Momoko.

Furthermore, the passage is related to the “contact zone”, digging deeper into the relationship between plants and human, like peas and farmers, how they support and affect each other.

They also brought an example in real life into the passage and talked about how genetic engineering can be compared to coded program. Another thing interesting is that both memories and programs are about encoding and decoding. Even though program can be simply coded and changed, human and nature are more complex and can’t be changed arbitrarily.
