Consider the paragraph starting with “In the brush houses…” Why is it so easy forKino’s neighbors to talk about what they would do in Kino’s situation? How do theyknow human nature so well? How is Kino’s situation different?

Kino's neighbors are essentially like Kino. They are poor and have often thought what they might do if they were to find the "pearl of the world." Kino and his neighbors are extensions of their ancestors who have done the same thing for generations. All had dreamt of finding such a pearl and all of them had considered the ramifications of what finding such a pearl would mean. They all know the shadow of greed and desire that envelops a man's heart when he feels he has nothing to lose.
