Day 2 Reflections by Matthew

EQ1: What is a system?

A system is where objects are constantly relying on one other. In order for the system to function properly, all the parts must be kept in order and in its place. Each piece in the system holds an equal importance for the it to succeed in completing the tasks, if one piece were to be missing or broken it would cause a chain effect leading to the destruction of certain things.

EQ2: How humans and the environment are dependent on each other.

There were kampong like houses located within the bio-sphere itself which were built on the river via wooden stilts. The inhabitants of the houses used solar power to power the electrical devices that were present in the house since there was no generator. They also used the water that was located all around them to act as transport for ferrying their catch, buying more materials etc. The water also provided them with adequate bathing water, drinking water and served their other needs as well.
