After Tom hears the whole story, all he says is “Well it’s all right, anyway, Jim, long as you’re going to be rich again sometime or other.” He gives him the sarcastic response to change the subject and it also means that he does not believe Jim’s story. There are multiple occasions where Huck tries to take advantage of what he believes to be his mental advantage over Jim because he is black. Huck and Jim are talking about Solomon and Jim believes that Solomon was actually a fool. The story of Solomon is that he was a very wise man who could judge and solve all disputes.

He then leads up to his main objection of this definition by means of stating that even though men and gods love that which they think is noble and good, and hate that which is opposite to those things, not everyone thinks this way about all things (Plato, 7). This being in the nature of things that are considered to be good by a group of people, can be hated by others, and this would also apply to the gods, for not everyone thinks the same.

In the end it is John who rejects society himself. This inversion presents some interesting points. The reader presumably already knows that the key characteristic of Brave New World's setting is moral decadence.

Everyone has their own internal opposition that they sometime struggle to deal with and The epic of Gilgamesh is a proof of it. During our journey on earth, we, sometime find ourselves in opposition with our own self and as we tend to better ourselves, we will look and do everything possible to have what we want.

At this point Antonio is even more confused; all of this time and hard work he had put into trying to understand God was useless. He had not just literally opened his eyes, but he figuratively as well. Antonio now “see’s” his suspicious of the Lord are confirmed. He did feel disappointment when this occurred because he wanted to dearly to believe in Him to make his mother happy; but now instead of listening to the séances about God and his mother’s strong beliefs in Him, he is taking his own experiences into consideration.
