The scientific findings described in Psychology Matters: Asia’s article titled, “How nature’s beauty can restore yourself mentally, physically, and spiritually” connect perfectly with Ray Bradbury’s ideas in Fahrenheit 451 that without an escape from the stress and rigidity that comes with a completely structured and modernized society, life can become so dull and colorless that people may lose the motivation and creativity that makes them unique. The article describes how without “quietness and natural visual beauty” away from the normal “hustle and bustle” of an ordinary life, one can revert to thinking in a “mainly automatic” way, with “little creativity and no sense of fulfillment”. When people are trapped in the same schedule over and over with little flexibility, nature can be an outlet of peace, tranquility, and inspiration. Just a little bit of exposure is scientifically proven to open minds and become an escape from a controlling and hectic schedule, so that when individuals return to their work, they will feel restored and devoted to work even harder than before. In Fahrenheit 451, Montag, trapped in a city without any allowance for original thought or change, imagines all of the “gray animals peering from electric caves” when he thinks of his fellow citizens, the people he compares himself to. When a man sees himself as nothing but one of “thousands and thousands of faces” he loses his sense of individuality and opinion. Although, when Montag finally escapes from the clutches of the Hound, a symbol of the power and greed that is holding him down from reaching his full potential, he finally realizes that although he has no physical possessions to his name, “there would always be more than enough” for him now that he is finally free to make his own decisions and have unique thoughts and feelings. In a world of strict schedules and extreme structure, people must be allowed to seek refuge in the little outlets of peace and freedom to maintain their originality, drive, and determination.
