It is not simple to understand how complex mathematical models and the pace of discoveries of not only species, but of higher classifications such as family could be used by scientists to come up with the estimate of 8.8 million species as the residents of this planet. But I can completely understand the statement of the researcher Boris Worm, a biology professor at Canada’s Dalhousie University who co-authored the study “We are really fairly ignorant of the complexity and colorfulness of this amazing planet, We need to expose more people to those wonders. It really makes you feel differently about this place we inhabit.”
The pace of  modern life leaves very little time to contemplate on such wonders. One can feel let down by the modern lifestyle and therefore romanticize about a future when the world will live with the liesure to be amazed by the beauty of the planet. But, in reality, letting the feeling of wonder arise even just for a few moments when we encounter these news on the internet or other media can be fullfilling if we keep looking out for those on an every day basis. The internet media provides us an opportunity to catch a glimpse of the wonder that a researcher feels with their brand new discovery.
