Journal entry[edit | edit source]

Based on my observations, I have concluded all species, be they plant, animal or even insect, are inextricably intertwined with one another. It is no mere coincidence the felling of the beech woods and the vanishing of the roes who in them once dwelled led to the disappearance of the sterling basilisks as well!
The principle even holds true for ladybirds.
For the betterment of learning, I conducted the following experiment: I eradicated all the aphids in the palace cabbage patch (using a lye solution). Within a few weeks, all of the ladybirds once present in that patch – and there were hundreds – migrated to a neighboring field. A simple experiment, yet it gave incontrovertible proof of my hypothesis!
