Oppositions and Resolutions Around Us
When I looked at the environment around me, I was unsure at first what to say was an opposition, but then after looking through my notes I realized some obvious oppositions around the University of Minnesota campus. One of the first oppositions would have to be a gravity versus movement example. The buildings around us have to deal with gravity when being constructed. Without thinking of how to deal with the effects of gravity on the building, it would crumble to the ground. So the resolution to this opposition would be to use columns or pillars to hold up the structures or even just use load bearing walls. Another example of this is the parking ramps around us like the Oak st. parking ramp. Due to gravity a car can't jsut float to the second level, to overcome the gravity we build ramps to get the car to the top of the ramp or to the bottom in a safe manner. Another opposition that i noticed was houses that have large trees in their backyards, so some this could get in the way but a resolution for this type of opposition could be to turn it into a tree house. Having a tree hosue would give another room for things to happen, like another room for children to play. Another resolution for this would be to jsut turn it into an umbrella of shade. By doing this you would be letting the oppostion sculpt the area it effects.
Another opposition that we are not dealing with yet, but will be soon is snow. This is like a man versus land opposition. When the snow falls it causes many problems. In the snow driving becomes difficult becuase it makes the roads slippery and dangerous. Snow also makes it hard for students to trek to class becuase the deeper it is the harder it is to walk through it. Resolutions for this type of opposition start with eliminating the snow in general. Many times to deal with snow on the roads we try to plow it or melt it befire it affects the people using the roads. We do the same to help the people walking through the snow as well. Snow also brings with it the cold and frigid weather. This opposition is dealt with in different ways depending on the where it occurs, Eskimos build igloos to protect themselves from the brutally cold wind and snow, while here in the cities we pump our homes full of heat and pack the walls of our houses with insulation to protect against the opposition of the cold and snow.
Well these are a few of the oppositions that I thought of as i think if more I will try to add them.
