Much of what goes by the name of pleasure is simply an effort
to destroy consciousness. If one started by asking, what is
man? What are his needs? How can he best express himself?
One would discover that merely having the power to avoid work
and live one’s life from birth to death in electric light and
to the tune of tinned music is not a reason for doing so. Man
needs warmth, society, leisure, comfort and security: he also
needs solitude, creative work and the sense of wonder. If he
recognized this he could use the products of science and
industrialism eclectically, applying always the same test:
does this make me more human or less human? He would then
learn that the highest happiness does not lie in relaxing,
resting, playing poker, drinking and making love simultaneously.

Often mistaken for insects, spiders actually belong to a different classification of creatures, called arachnids. They’re insects’ worst enemies. Although a few species, such as the black widow and the brown recluse, are dangerous, the majority are harmless to humans. Moreover, they can be helpful. Pest control, for example is just one of the many ways spiders can help us. Because they kill far more pests than commercial insecticides do. In the future, perhaps if farmers employ armies of spiders to protect their fields, our grocery bills will be lower and our soil and water and food will have fewer pesticide remains.

Homer is a Greek epic poet. Both the date and the place of his birth and death are not known precisely, but recent research suggests a date between 1050 and 800 BC. It has even been claimed that no such man as Homer existed and that the Iliad and the Odyssey are collections of traditional ballads and not the work of one man. In any event they were known all over the Greek-speaking world before the sixth century BC. The Iliad is an epic poem dealing with the siege of Troy by the Greeks. The Odyssey describes the wandering of Odysseus, a Greek seafarer, on his way back to Ithaca after the fall of Troy.

I have previously defined a sanctuary as a place where man
is passive and the rest of Nature active. But this general
definition is too absolute for any special case. The mere
fact that man has to protect a sanctuary does away with his
purely passive attitude. Then, he can be beneficially active
by destroying pests and parasites, like bot-flies or
mosquitoes, and by finding antidotes for diseases like the
epidemic which periodically kills off the rabbits and thus
starves many of the carnivores to death. But, except in cases
where experiment has proved his intervention to be
beneficial, the less he upsets the balance of Nature the
better, even when he tries to be an earthly Providence
The author implies that his first definition of a sanctuary isCorrectIncorrect/Not answered
The author’s argument that destroying bot-flies and mosquitoes would be a beneficial action is most weakened by all of the following exceptCorrectIncorrect/Not answered
