Some experiences cause the self to see nature as fickle, or as dominated by incomprehensible spiritual powers, or as contrary toward humans and their analysis, etc. On the other hand self may become trapped in collusions which cloud the nature of reality and processes therein. The more fortunate persons are not the victims of such extreme circumstances, yet may be relatively poor in experiences which offer a positive stimulation toward the development of a scientific understanding of the nature of reality. The person in a primitive society sees few processes which yield to simple scientific analysis---due to the absence of manufactured equipment. For this reason earliest science often focused on the regularities of stellar and planetary motion. In our modem society children are exposed to a man-made-world with many regular processes which might be subjected to scientific analysis. However, the mere experience of such processes is not conducive to the development of a scientific understanding of the nature of reality. Processes must be experienced within a fail-safe context which positively encourages analysis of every-day processes which are understandable for a person in self's present developmental stage. If any of these conditions is not satisfied, the significance of the experience is reduced. It is the responsibility of the science educators to seek ways of being helpful so that the essential conditions are met. Science education which integrates real students' daily experiences is likely to have more carry-over value than science education which creates an artificial world of scientific experiences with an associated set of analysis procedures. This is especially true if the students have negative emotional responses toward the artificial world of scientific experiences. Thus it may be helpful for educators to become aware of their students' histories of previous science relevant experiences, so as to be able to build on the foundations which have been laid.
