I thought it was very interesting how Macauley discusses how heat and cold have an influence on all of the elements, almost giving them a superior power. When looking at water, for example, it’s states of matter are entirely dependent on temperature. Therefore, weather like rain and snow are dependent upon the equilibrium heat and cold may or may not reach with one another. Not only this, but heat and cold also have a direct effect on the attitudes of humans. Those who consider themselves to be ‘winter people’ may thrive in the cold months yet dread the humidity that summer brings. On the other hand, those who love summer hate the frigid air that the winter months bring that makes them shiver. And so, on a more drastic scale, heat and cold by themselves account for a decent amount of human pleasure; a revelating concept.
