2.The second prompt was: How has a work of science unsettled you or surprised you and in what way?
What "metamorphosis" means to some people may convey something totally different to others. In the context of "to make or become different"; moreover, "metamorphosis" is the most regarded word in my existence because the words and its meaning has such a colossal influence in my life every day. It is a word that constantly pushes me out my comfort zone and pushes me to my very best, for the most desirable of effects or unfortunate ones. Sometimes it is uncomfortable for me, because a metamorphosis in state affects my control over my outcomes, and thus I fight against adversity. I had not matured through crying, whining, worrying, retreating, or through mental breakdowns; but it was endurance that blossomed me into the young man I am. My metamorphosis is measured by my dissatisfaction of who I am, and who I will be, and it never rests, it always has launching points through time. Metamorphosis, in my world, can either make me or break me; I can either churn from it or learn from it, either for the better or for the worst. This is not just my favorite word, but it is significant word that describes the developing of my character and actions. Metamorphosis is like walking on a dark road for the first time-I can't see too much for a while, but once I do, I will realize that change from the light is nothing to be fearful of.
What scientists have proved in the past centuries in medical work, has astonished the media, the public, and even science itself. The first near-full face transplant has proved itself upon thousands of hours of medical breakthroughs and discoveries. This scientific work on the human body's appearance has surprised me in a beneficial manner, because of this work's amount of potential to help many people who have disfigured faces. This entire procedure on facial transplants has moved me morally and ethically. Not only can people with disfigured faces not have to be "judged by their cover" to an extent anymore, but facial transplants can offer a solution to it. Moreover, the science behind this near-full transplant has proved that the medical field is gaining ground; and it has enlightened me. Hundreds of years ago, there have been people that have disfigured their faces through war wounds, chemicals, and plain accidents, and they had been unable to do anything; to just live life without a face. However, now that doctors have enabled a new era of human revolution, things that were not able to be done to the human body, can be done presently. This medical work on humans has moved me in a way that has made me realize that through years of research and work, metamorphosis can be found in scientific history.
