By encouraging the growth of new ideas based on preexisting ones through discussion forums and inquiry, “making knowledge free and open-sourced has the potential to accelerate human development.” The claim in this thesis would be the first component, which is: “Making knowledge free and open-sourced can accelerate human progress,” in…
Humans are used to a particular way of life that establishes their gender roles. Therefore, a person’s gender is determined by the behavior that is expected of them in a culture rather than by their biological makeup. For instance, guys are drilled from an early age to act tough, never…
Carl Sagan’s 1977 book The Dragons of Eden: Speculation on Human Evolution is a work of science fiction. A variety of sciences, including anthropology and evolutionary biology, are used to try to explain the evolution of human intellect (Sagan 3). The author addresses the question of quantifying human intelligence capabilities….
Enzymes are the proteins that regulate the thousands of biological reactions that take place in living organisms. They help us digest our food, conserve and transform energy, and make proteins and other cellular structures from smaller molecules. Without enzymes, most of these biochemical processes would not occur with the speed…
Around 10,000 years ago, human civilization learnt how to plant food crops in order to maintain tribes, villages, and towns. Learning agricultural practices leads to population expansion, settlement, and leisure time for people. People used to hunt and gather food like other animals on the earth’s surface in the past….
Death is an inevitable natural occurrence that separates the body from the soul (Druart, 2000). Humans are unable to ignore it or take any action to entirely eradicate it from society.

Cellular respiration is a series of metabolic processes that all living things use to convert energy stored in organic molecules, such as glucose. The process can seem complicated but is actually pretty straightforward. Plants and other photosynthetic producers (autotrophs) create glucose molecules by utilizing sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide to…
The cell cycle is a series of regulated steps that occur in cells on the way to cell division. These stages of growth, DNA replication and chromosome separation are timed in such a way that they produce two genetically identical daughter cells. The cells of eukaryotes, like humans and most…
Bioengineering is the application of the life sciences, physical sciences and engineering principles to define and solve problems in biology, medicine, health care and other fields. The field has broad-based specializations and employs diverse professionals working in a variety of settings, including manufacturing, research facilities, government, and health care institutions….
Apoptosis is the cellular equivalent of a “self-destruct button.” It’s a controlled process that rids the body of cells that are no longer needed. Like cell division, apoptosis is critical for healthy tissue growth and development. Apoptosis happens when a cell is sick, injured, or in need of rearranging itself…
