He was next sold to a rich collector of rare beasts, who treated him inhumanely. Eventually he escaped to a nearby forest and was last seen weeping, looking in terror at rabbits and squirrels, and trying desperately to walk on all fours.Setting cruelty and indifference aside, the professors and other earthlings in this story provide yet another vivid demonstration of conceptual conservatism. Even though the evidence conclusively pointed to the alien's superior intelligence and kindness, his learned jailers failed to shake

The Deadly Impact of Fear People may think that their greatest fear is a ferocious animal, lightning speed, terrifying heights, or a venomous insect but the greatest fear of all is fear itself. When placed in an unfamiliar setting over an extended period of time, like the boys in William Golding’s novel The Lord of the Flies, fear escalates as time goes on. This is illustrated when the boys were unable to kill a pig when they had the right opportunity, to then brutally killing a pig as time progressed. To finally, killing one of their own.
