Allegory of the cave


Notice: Use of undefined constant template_url - assumed 'template_url' in /home1/mkathono/public_html/topcustomessays.com/wp-content/themes/great/functions.php on line 30

Allegory of the cave
Agreeing with Plato on allegory of the cave. What does the allegory of the cave mean, is it factual and can it be applied.
Everyday modern society is presenting many images through forms of media. Media has a big impact because it covers the news, television. The average person has more than one television in their house and because of this they are influenced of what they watch. Reality television is a big part of our modern society and we perceive them as reality. In the reading, Allegory of the cave, by Plato he explains how each person is being represented by false illusions that we perceive as reality. We see these images on a regular basis and it is very hard to tell the difference between reality and false interpretations.

We are prisoners in our own society who have spent our whole lives in the dark with images placed in front of our eyes. Watching shows like the “Jersey Shore,” gives us on what is reality. It is a story how a group of young individuals live amongst each other and what they do on a regular basis. We really believe that is how the life in “Jersey Shore” is, and how Italians behave. As people we watch these images and we sit and absorb it like a sponge. We are being fed interpretations and we judge the way the live without realizing these are mere shadows. This so called “reality,” is just an illusion being scripted by directors and writers for entertainment. Do we really believe all Italians fits pump and act immature? If we do, we are ignorant people and we cannot tell the difference between reality and non-reality.

When you finally open your eyes and see reality television as a false interpretation in the life on the shore, will you accept this fact? Plato illustrates how a prisoner is freed and is finally shown what is real and fake. As this prisoner absorbs the reality of what is real he wants to go back to what he perceives reality. Moments pass and he accepts the true reality of his world and is freed. Just like this prisoner, a few people know reality television is scripted and we know. At times it is hard to swallow the truth because we see copies of realty television on a regular basis. In reality it is just entertainment and illusions just like a magician with a deck of cards. As the prisoner is enlightened from seeing the truth we all know the fact of reality television is the same, just as the shadows in the prisoners’ wall in their cave.

When a magician reveals his secret, which is the sleight of hand trick, we do not want to believe it. Why don’t we want to believe it? Is it because we want to believe it is really magic or we just cannot accept the truth? When the prisoner goes back to his cave and explains what is real and what is not, they react the same way. The prisoners who have not been freed will believe his suppressor and call the “enlightened prisoner” a liar when he seen true reality. It is hard to digest and accept the truth many people believe in “prince charming,” these are the same people who leave cookies and milk for Santa on Christmas and believe in reality television.

INTRODUCTION
The rock pocket mouse, Chaetodipus intermedius, is a small, nocturnal animal found in the deserts of the southwestern United States. Most rock pocket mice have a sandy, light-colored coat that enables them to blend in with the light color of the desert rocks and sand on which they live. However, populations of primarily dark-colored rock pocket mice have been found living in areas where the ground is covered in a dark rock called basalt. The basalt formed from cooling lava flows thousands of years ago. Scientists have collected data from a population of primarily dark-colored mice living in an area of basalt called the Pinacate lava flow in Arizona, as well as from a nearby light-colored population. Researchers analyzed the data from these two populations in search of the genetic mutation responsible for the dark color. Their analysis led to the discovery of a mutation in the Mc1r gene, which is involved in coat-color determination.
PART 1 – PROCEDURE
A. Read the following excerpt from an article published in the Smithsonian magazine by Dr. Sean Carroll, a leading evolutionary biologist and Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator:
“One of the most widespread phenomena in the animal kingdom is the occurrence of darkly pigmented varieties within species. All sorts of moths, beetles, butterflies, snakes, lizards and birds have forms that are all or mostly black…All of these so-called “melanic” forms result from increased production of the pigment melanin in the skin, fur, scales, or feathers. Melanic pigmentation can serve many roles. Melanin protects us and other animals from the ultraviolet rays of the sun, it can help animals in colder climates or higher altitudes warm their bodies more quickly, and black pigment does conceal some animals from predators.
In the deserts of the southwestern United States, for instance, there are outcrops of very dark rocks that were produced by lava flows over the past two million years. Among these rocks lives the rock pocket mouse, which occurs in dark black and a light, sandy color. Naturalists in the 1930’s observed that mice found on the lava rocks were typically melanic, while those on the surrounding sand-colored granite rocks were usually light-colored. This color-matching between fur color and habitat background appears to be an adaptation against predators, particularly owls. Mice that are color-matched to their surroundings have a survival advantage over mismatched mice in each of the two habitats…
The gene involved in the origin of melanism in (some) rock pocket mice is called melanocortin receptor 1, or MC1R for short. That is not a very interesting nugget of information, until I tell you that the melanic forms of jaguars, snow geese, arctic fox, fairy wrens, banaquits, golden lion tamarins, arctic skua, two kinds of lizards, and of domestic cows, sheep, and chickens are caused by mutations in this very same gene. In some species, precisely the same mutations have occurred independently in the origin of their dark forms. These discoveries reveal that the evolution of melanism is not some incredibly rare accident, but a common, repeatable process. Evolution can and does repeat itself.” (Carroll, S. Evolution in Black and White. Smithsonian.com, February 10, 2009).
B. Watch the short film titled The Making of the Fittest: Natural Selection and Adaptation (this is posted on Bboard if you want to watch it again).
C. Using a genetic code chart, such as the one here (or one in any biology text) and the mRNA codons provided in the table below, fill in the appropriate amino acids in the boxes left blank. The columns from the Pinacate light-colored and dark-colored rock pocket mouse populations studied in the film have been filled in for you.

D. Answer the questions below.
1. Most rock pocket mouse populations have sandy-colored fur, which is consistent with the light color of the desert rocks and sand on which they live. On the other hand, dark coat-colored rock pocket mouse populations have been found living on black, basaltic rock formations caused by geologic lava flows. What is the best explanation for these facts?

2. The Mc1r gene encodes a protein called the melanocortin 1 receptor (MC1R). This receptor plays a role in the coat color of the rock pocket mouse. When the normal Mc1r gene is present, melanocytes, which are melanin-producing skin cells, decrease the production of the dark-colored pigment called eumelanin and increase the production of the light-colored pigment, pheomelanin. The mutated version of the Mc1r gene results in an increase in the production of eumelanin by melanocytes, resulting in the dark coat-color phenotype.
a. In the data provided in Step 3 of the Procedure, the MC1R protein in the dark rock pocket mouse population from the Pinacate lava flow contains how many mutations?
b. Compare the amino acid data of dark-colored mice from the other three populations to that of the wild-type (light-colored) mice in the Pinacate region. What do you notice?
c. Use the information in the passage on page 1 to explain the evolutionary significance of MC1R protein variations in the different mouse populations.
3. Charles Darwin proposed the mechanism of evolution called natural selection. Explain the theory of natural selection.
4. Natural selection is just one mechanism of evolution. What are the others? Use your textbook or other Internet resources if necessary.
5. If two of the lava flows in New Mexico were in close proximity to each other and included spans of rocky outcrops between them, what would be a possible mechanism, other than new mutations, to drive the decrease in the light coat- colored gene frequency and the increase in the dark coat-colored gene frequency in these rock pocket mouse populations? Explain your answer.
PART 2 – PROCEDURE
A. Review the principles of Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium
The genetic definition of evolution is a change to a population’s gene pool. Gene pool is defined as the total number of alleles present in a population at any given point in time. According to the Hardy-Weinberg theorem, a population is in equilibrium (and is therefore not evolving) when all of the following conditions are true:
1. The population is very large and well mixed.
2. There is no migration.
3. There are no mutations.
4. Mating is random.
5. There is no natural selection.
To determine whether a population’s gene pool is changing, we need to be able to calculate allelic frequencies. Suppose, for example, a gene has two alleles, A and a. Each individual has one of three genotypes: AA, Aa, or aa. If the population is in equilibrium, the overall number of A alleles and a alleles in the gene pool will remain constant as will the proportion of the population with each genotype. If allele frequencies or genotype frequencies change over time, then evolution is occurring.
Two equations are used to calculate the frequency of alleles in a population, where?p represents the frequency of the dominant allele and q represents the frequency of the recessive allele:
p + q = 1.0
and
p2 +2pq+q2 =1.0
The first equation says that if there are only two alleles for a gene, one dominant and one recessive, then 100% of the alleles are either dominant (p) or recessive (q).
• The second equation says that 100% of individuals in the population will have one of these genotypes: AA, Aa, and aa. Let’s look at each of these one by one to understand the equation:
• If p represents the frequency of the A allele, then the frequency of the genotype AA will be (p)×(p) or p2.
• If q represents the frequency of the a allele, then the frequency of the genotype aa will be (q)×(q) or q2.
• For heterozygotes, we must allow for either the mother or the father to contribute the dominant and recessive alleles. You can think of it as allowing for both genotypes Aa and aA. So, the frequency of the heterozygous genotype is calculated as 2pq. ?In rock pocket mice, several genes code for fur color. Each of those genes have several possible alleles. That’s why there is a range of fur color from very dark to light. For simplicity, we will work with two alleles at one gene. The allele for dark- colored fur (D) is dominant to the allele for light-colored fur (d). In this scenario, individual rock pocket mice can have one of three genotypes and one of two phenotypes, as summarized in the table below.
Genotype Phenotype
Homozygous dominant DD Dark
Heterozygous Dd Dark
Homozygous recessive dd Light

So, applying Hardy-Weinberg:?p = the frequency of the dominant allele (D)
q = the frequency of the recessive allele (d) p2 = the frequency of DD?2pq = the frequency of Dd?q2 = the frequency of dd
This can also be expressed as: (the frequency of the DD genotype) + (the frequency of the Dd genotype) +(the frequency of the dd genotype) = 1
SAMPLE PROBLEM
In a hypothetical population consisting of 100 rock pocket mice, there are 81 individuals with light, sandy-colored fur. Their genotype is dd. The other 19 individuals are dark colored and have either genotype DD or genotype Dd.
Find p and q for this population and calculate the frequency of heterozygous genotypes in the population. It is easy to calculate q2.
q2 = 81/100 = 0.81 or 81%
Next, calculate q.?q = square root (0.81) = 0.9
Now calculate p using the equation p + q = 1 p + (0.9) = 1?p = 0.1
Now, to calculate the frequency of heterozygous genotypes, we need to calculate 2pq. 2pq = 2(0.1) (0.9) = 2(0.09)?2pq= 0.18

PART B: APPLYING HARDY-WEINBERG TO ROCK POCKET MOUSE FIELD DATA
Dr. Nachman and his colleagues collected rock pocket mice across 35-kilometers of the Arizona Sonoran Desert that included both dark, rocky lava outcrops and light rocky granite areas. Substrate color and coat color frequencies were recorded for each location. Each site was separated from any of the others by at least 8 kilometers. A total of 225 mice were trapped. His data is summarized below:

Collection Site Substrate Color Number of Mice Phenotype – Light Phenotype – Dark
1 Light 6 6 0
2 Light 85 80 5
3 Dark 7 0 7
4 Dark 5 0 5
5 Dark 45 3 42
6 Light 77 34 43

1. Calculate the overall frequencies of light-colored mice and dark-colored mice caught on light-colored substrates. Frequency = (number of mice of one color)/(total number of mice)
Frequency of light-colored mice________ Frequency of dark-colored mice________?
2. Calculate the overall frequencies of light-colored mice and dark mice caught on dark-colored substrates. Frequency = (number of mice of one color)/(total number of mice)
Frequency of light-colored mice________ Frequency of dark-colored mice________?
?3. Using the Hardy-Weinberg equation and data from the table above, determine the number of mice with the DD and Dd genotypes on the rocky, light granite substrate.?
Frequency of mice with DD genotype on light substrate ________
Frequency of mice with dd genotype on light substrate ________
Frequency of mice with Dd genotype on light substrate ________
4. Using the Hardy-Weinberg equation and data from the table above, determine the number of mice with the DD and Dd genotypes on the rocky, dark lava substrate.
Frequency of mice with DD genotype on dark substrate ________
Frequency of mice with dd genotype on dark substrate ________
Frequency of mice with Dd genotype on dark substrate ________
5. Which fur color seems to have the greatest overall selective advantage? Use data collected from both dark-colored and light-colored substrates to support your answer.
6. According to the film, what environmental change gave a selective advantage for one coat color over another?

7. In a separate study, 76 rock pocket mice were collected from four different widely-separated areas of dark lava rock. One collecting site was in Arizona. The other three were in New Mexico. Dr. Nachman and colleagues observed no significant differences in the color of the rocks in the four locations sampled. However, the dark-colored mice from the three New Mexico locations were slightly darker than the dark-colored mice from the Arizona population. The entire Mc1r gene was sequenced in all 76 of the mice collected.
The mutations responsible for the dark fur color in the Arizona mice were absent from the three different populations of New Mexico mice. No Mc1r mutations were associated with dark fur color in the New Mexico populations. These findings suggest that adaptive dark coloration has occurred at least twice in the rock pocket mouse and that these similar phenotypic changes have a different genetic basis. How does this study support the concept that natural selection is not random?
8. To determine if the rock pocket mouse population is evolving, explain why is it necessary to collect fur color frequency data over a period of many years?
