Lightman explains in the essay that because of this there are no chemical reactions such as “photosynthesis, battery power and taste,” (Lightman, 147).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
