The laws of physics state that for each action there is an equal but opposite reaction. This statement is true for all aspects of human existence, including the physical as well as the metaphysical. Human’s often apply this law to human interaction and label it Karma, which is essentially the belief that the degree of good one does is directly proportional to how well the world as a whole treats that individual in the future. The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Coleridge embodies this law in the sense that it is a parable that addresses the reactive property of nature. This poem is still relevant today because its main theme is an allusion to global warming which is a pressing issue in today’s society.

This is shown through one’s decisions against nature, against themselves, and against one’s errors.
