Johnson implements the idea of dualism throughout the text. Dualism denotes a state of two parts. On page 98, dualism is bluntly noted as being the “bloody structure of the mind.” This line ties man, blood, the mind, and murder all together. Man’s desire’s of the mind encourages competition among humans, and ultimately; murder (the hunt for blood).
