ABSTRACT
This article presents the author's views on the influence of civilization on nature and the creation of civilization itself. The author describes with remorse how the elements of nature, including rocks, gritty earth, insects and reptiles and breezes, grass and brush are affected by civilization. Standing on a bridge, the author experiences how cars moving with speed have affected the bridge, how the mills on the riverside, which were closed later, have left the river water polluted.
