This year’s annual Nature Show centers around the 4 elements of Western Culture,
Fire (plasma), Air (gas), Water (liquid) and Earth (solid). The four classic elements are the simplest forms of existence.
A fifth element, sensory experience, was added by Aristotle which became the basis for Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism.
Eastern countries such as Japan, China, Tibet and also Greece believe the fifth element to be metal.
