In "Intervention" the author writes, "We have seen a lot, it's true, but know so little. How were we to learn? Years ago we were led down the primrose lane, then abandoned somewhere near the carp pond. Suffice it to say there is little nourishment here and the carp have grown strange cancers. When we look in their pond we see them beneath our own watery faces." What does the author want the reader to take away from these statements? What is your interpretation of the statements? Explain.
