Diamonds perception is limited. In context, he accepts his education as true while not trusting “how his fellows order their knowledge”.

The Fore not only discredited what Diamond assumed was a universal truth, but outwitted American experts due to their ability to decipher which mushrooms are edible because of their experience. This encounter is a testament to Perry’s belief on what constitutes a truly educated person. Lacking knowledge, he refused to accept his “fellow’s orders knowledge” by not…

    I was in the garden again. The damp soil running through my fingers. The water soaking through the knees of my jeans. I weeded around my beans, feeling the dirt under my fingernails and in the creases of my palms. My first few days here I just watched, unsure of the unspoken rules that hovered over the garden. Then, one day, I walked over to a girl. She was almost my age and tended to 2 rows of lima beans. I don’t know if it was the way not only she but her plants seemed to tremble in the wind…
