Nature on Display
Without a doubt, my favorite gallery in the Natural History Museum was the display of prehistoric aquatic organism. First of all, the environment played a hug role. The combination of blue themes, narrow passages, and dim lights submerged me into the displays. I felt as if I was actually underwater! As for what this experience as a whole taught me, the most profound message had to be how small I was. Not only in size, but by demonstrating the variety in the ocean, let alone the entire world in just seconds of vision, left me with a feeling of reverence. I am a speck of dust physically, based on numbers, and time. Awkwardly enough, that is what I enjoyed the most. Instead of feeling inadequate, it is pretty receiving being reminded that life always has and will move on with or without you. My problems seemed much or minuscule and manageable knowing the amount of people and the amount of sheer experiences humans and organisms have gone through.
