The concern is dramatized in the neutral tone and precise detail of imagery used in the narration of this short story, intensifying the horror of the use of nuclear weapons. The story starts off with a happy family living in a wonderful electronic house until “And then one day s the world shook and there was an explosion followed by ten thousand explosions and red fire in the sky and a rain of ashes and radio-activity, and the happy time was over.” We know that the family has died but it is not said in the text as it is obvious in the way this text is constructed. This house this family lives in is no ordinary house. Even thought the inhabitants don’t exist anymore, the house still functions to its capacity. The house does everything for them, cooks breakfast, lunch and dinner, and warms up the beds before they go to sleep as well as normal everyday chores.

Both texts “Brave New World” and “Blade Runner (Directors Cut)” are science fiction texts of different time periods, where the composers present a bleak view of the future. They show a common vision that people have lost their way, that we are becoming the commodities, that human worth is measured quantitatively, and that emotions are basically absent. Although presenting in very different text types, they both show great concerns for humanity. Ridley Scott, in his film “Blade Runner” (1982) presents a world where technological progress had reduced humanity. This is a world of Los Angeles 2019, where relationships seemed impossible, huge buildings dominate and no sense of the natural world exists.
The society of Waknuk has survived a nuclear war. The people have, however, only a dim memory of that period and refer to it as Tribulation, a time during which mankind had to pay for its sins. Only the war happened a long time ago, radiation still contaminates the living world outside the small community. Whenever any evidence of contamination is found within Waknuk, the inhabitants immediately eliminate the offending plant, animal, or...... person. The story centres around the narrator, David Strorm, his small group of friends who all possess telepathic abilities, and David's sternly religious family.
As the monster reveals his struggles after his abandonment his first self-education moment is seen in regards to his explanation of his first few days after his creation. The monster says, “I knew, and could distinguish nothing; but feeling pain invade me on all sides, I sat down and wept. Soon a gentle light stole over the heavens and gave me a sensation of pleasure.”(Pg. 85) Although the monster claims to have known nothing, the moon gave him a sense of pleasure which can be said that if he was truly created with a blank slate how was it that moon gave him pleasure just like how a new born baby may be afraid of the dark yet the moon provides a sense of security. Also the monster although knowing nothing is able to determine whether he is hunger or thirsty with out being born with some knowledge, although he could have learned these feelings from experience but he has no capacity to understand what is happening to him or what he is feeling and therefore he uses this experience of feeling hunger and thirst to in the future look for berries and drink water.
Since Mars Attacks !, and more specifically since Big Fish, Burton decided to tell things differently. His vision of the world slightly changed in every of his films : now, the rejected freak comes down to the world and stays. A world that remains frightening and weird even thought we call it "reality" but a world worth living in. And that's what Charlie & The Chocolate Factory is all about… It all begins with a main title sequence that may be one of the main weaknesses of the film. How Tim Burton imposes his style over this movie?
Afterwards, the River Monster announces that it is because of Houyi, so all the people blame and trouble him unless Houyi can shoot the other nine suns. Houyi is very puzzled and restless, so he even cannot shoot one sun. One day, a goddess cannot tolerate it and tries to help Houyi. He gives Houyi a magical pill and tells Houyi that he can get rid of all the troubles and goes into the moon after eating this pill, but he will take on endlessly lonely. After hearing this, he comes back home and tells everything to Chang-e, then he sleeps deeply because he hasn’t had a good sleep since the thing happened.
SUMMARY: The speaker complains that "the world" is too overwhelming for us to appreciate it. We're so concerned about time and money that we use up all our energy. People want to accumulate stuff, so they see nothing in Nature that they can "own." According to the speaker, we've sold our souls. We should be able to appreciate beautiful events like the moon shining over the ocean and the blowing of strong winds, but it's like we're on a different wavelength from Nature.
