In blade runner the current world has transformed so far past comfortable that some are moving to alternate planets. “Off world colonies, a chance to begin again.” This slogan projected across the city represents human’s destruction of the current world through their extensive advancements in technology. Tyrell in this movie plays the god role and like Frankenstein attempts to create the perfect being. Though is the creator fair on its creations. Forcing them to work and slave away with a cut off life span of only 4 years.
Soon upon a time, following the explosion of an extraterrestrial spaceship, an injured, human-like, beautiful creature appeared at the doorstep of a farmhouse. This alien was lost and afraid, but driven to seek help by hunger and pain. The farmer and his wife treated it kindly and nursed it back to health. They then handed it over to the professors, elders, and priests. The professors placed him in a cage and studied him as if he were a rat or a monkey.
He is the prime example of a character that is easy to sympathize with or feel sorry for; however, the monster deserves a lot more sympathy than Victor does. Victor in a sense is the counterpart to the monster; he is surrounded by people who love him and cherish his company and thoughts. The monster on the other hand has no one to talk to, and is rejected by all even if though his heart is passionate. It is as the saying, ‘do not judge a book by its cover’,with the monster it is this way. He seems to be a very intelligent being, though he may be a little immature, this is all Victor’s doing.
But this time it took place in mars. As like in Fahrenheit 451 this book had many similarities with the themes that Ray Bradbury tries to give about the outcome of the advancement of technology. In the chronicle “there will come soft rains” Bradbury creates a house that is so technologically advance that is capable to tend to any need that a person might have. As like in Fahrenheit 451 the house symbolizes that technology will take over our lives and will make humans very dependent on it. In the second expedition, not knowing that the Martians were not immune to chicken pox the explores accidently bring the disease and kill all the Martians.
What one perceives as being abnormal and crazy may seem normal to another and vice versa. Why exactly do some people consider some behavior and actions to be abnormal while others deem them rational? It also seems that society is very quick to shun anyone different and very willing to accept those same people when they change themselves to become the same thing as everyone else: boring, mindless robots controlled by a greater power composed of a few who want the world to be under their control. Ken Kesey, author of the acclaimed novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, examines these thoughts and questions about sanity and madness with different characters from his novel. During the time period of the 1960’s and for years after, people were often considered insane or abnormal when they were different.
Humans are so firm in their belief that they themselves have the power to change their lives, but this power is imaginary and they are simply taking the only path they can because we are all “bugs trapped in amber”. Human beings are slaves to predestination. The Tralfamdorians again express their disbelief in free will at the end of Chapter Four, when Billy how he got on the Tralfamadorian saucer. The plunger shaped alien expresses, “It would take another Earthling to explain it to you. Earthlings are great explainers, explaining why this event is structured as it is, telling how other events may be achieved or avoided.
Gatsby however is shown more positively even though he represents everything that Nick, our narrator, is not. Comparing Tom and Gatsby it becomes obvious how different they are. Tom was born to wealth and expects thing to go his way, he is domineering and a bit of a brute, this is shown when he physically attacks Myrtle in chapter 2, when she challenges his alpha male attitude. Gatsby on the other hand is calm throughout the novel and does not steep to Toms level of physical violence, this makes Tom seem like a savage, especially since he is representing
Judgments Faults To judge a person by only their outer appearance is a very easy thing to do; that does not make it alright. To see someone and assume something about them is natural and comfortable to humans. This is what takes place more often than not in any society. Mary Shelley's Frankenstein tells the story of a man who creates a monster that everyone who sees it, shuns it. No person enjoys being judged or thought badly of.
Materialism is described by Hasker as scientific way to describe the human species other than “body” and “soul”. Maddox does not see Data as having rights and sees him as property of Starfleet and tries to prove it in front Picard when he is called up to the stand in trial. Throughout the whole episode you can clearly see that he sees him as a piece of hardware by calling him “it” and does not believe he has the necessary emotions or self-awareness needed to be
Seth Nama Dr. Murphy English 1101-127 2 December 2014 The Reason to Forgive in Bradbury’s “The Other Foot” In Ray Bradbury’s The Illustrated Man, there is a story, “The Other Foot,” he writes about Martians living on Mars who are about to have a white man come on a rocket.
