How to use perturbing in a sentence?

  1. Primo Levi:

    The butterfly's attractiveness derives not only from colors and symmetry: deeper motives contribute to it. We would not think them so beautiful if they did not fly, or if they flew straight and briskly like bees, or if they stung, or above all if they did not enact the perturbing mystery of metamorphosis: the latter assumes in our eyes the value of a badly decoded message, a symbol, a sign.

  2. Amos Tai:

    The relationship between plants and insects and other organisms have developed over many years -- thousands to millions of years, but in the recent century, climate change is really wrecking everything and perturbing all of these relationships.
