“Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are a part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.”
-Max Planck

The war has begun since mankind has stepped foot on Earth. It has begun before we could even realize it, the fight between both sides were equally matched. There is no knowing of which nation would take over the throne. Humans have been battling fearlessly against these natural disasters that have been thrown towards us.

Some of these natural phenomenons are unknown. One of them, the Bermuda Triangle remains a mystery until now. The Bermuda Triangle has caused as much as 25 accidents since the 1800s. As little as 18 out of the 935 people survived these catastrophes. The scientific reasoning behind these unfortunate events still remains unknown. Scientists are baffled by this phenomenon.

Possibly, the most threatening as some would call it is located at the Yellowstone park. The volcano is known to be the strongest as of this moment. The ash that was emitted could cover 3 states in the Northwest part of the USA. NASA has been attempting to prevent the volcano from erupting by drilling down and adding ice-cold water in circulation to cool it down. Geologists predicted that the volcano will erupt in the next 100,000 to 140,000 years.

On the other hand, apart from all the strange and catastrophic disasters shown above, there are a few mutual events that occurred between the war. That’s right folks! Miracles CAN happen. Rainbow Eucalyptus, as it is called has a plethora of colors on the trunk of the tree and is considered the most colorful tree in the world found in the Philippines and Indonesia. It is caused by its bark turning colors and peeling away as it ages which changes its color depending on its age from light green to brown. It ironically produces white paper.

In conclusion, nature does not bow to man. It has its own special status, much of it is still a mystery. Telling is the fact that the more we try (foolishly) to domesticate mother nature out of curiosity, the more she tends to fight back.
