Abstract
This paper examines the impacts on societal and individual change through movement and uses a bubble as an indicator of change through a multi-layered study of the chemical composition, historical insights and literacy responses from the ##. By examining the historically and scientifically based study, I will clarify and substantiate the idea that bubbles can be used as a metaphor to chart social structures and individual connections. The study includes the examination of the chemical composition of bubbles, the ascent and demise of a society and the use of a bubble as a metaphor for the individual. I use two major research strategies: (1) an analysis of the composition and a description of a bubble and (2) a close study of a society. Data have been collected from books, interviews and published reports.

The physical floating body of the bubble itself is enormously interesting. Bubbles have what appears to be a silky smooth surface; however it can easily pop when intervened by any surrounding objects. There’s a beauty to bubbles, maybe it’s the reflective sunlight that travels through the bubbles own physical traits making it pleasing to look at. Or perhaps it’s the simplicity of a bubble that perplexes the imagination and observations to the human mind. The bubble may seem close to perfection from your perception however its true quality and feature is one sticky disaster. The bubble has four main elements that mold its physical body as a whole: water, sugar, glycerin, and soap. As the bubble ascended towards the sky, it finally ventured to its demise of breaking apart into minuscule drops of water, soap, sugar, and glycerin. Not to mention, bubbles have naturally acquired a prodigious aroma that enchants a majority of people’s noses. The observations (viewed by many students) occurring the duration that Ms. James class was joyfully blowing bubbles have noticed that bubbles can be used as a metaphor for different types of societies...
