    • Does society create myths and legends when scientific facts are vague and inconclusive? Are religion and spirituality the same thing? © Andrew Geers Photography
    • Why would a society purposefully subject itself to flooding and decay? How quickly do people adapt to a completely unfamiliar society? © Andrew Geers Photography
    • How fulfilling of a life does an only child have as compared to a child with siblings? Is the reason we do or do not have children related to our own childhood experiences or do our surroundings dictate that decision? © Andrew Geers Photography
