He does not fit the typical identity of a “mad-scientist” even though he might be considered one for destroying the human race with modern science and creating a species much like humans. The author claims that the society of the novel is one that is corrupt and enjoys human suffering. The author also defines “outlaw emotions” as negative feelings that are present in Crake. These negative emotions supposedly create the “madness” of a mad scientist
Jealousy is a hatred for someone better than you and “acting like a child” means being immature and having no sense, put those together and get Cassius. In The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, jealousy is a big motif within the Tragedy; everything revolves around jealousy, without it what would the story line be? Everyone is a bit jealous but out of all the characters the one conspirator who is over the top filled with jealousy is Cassius. Cassius’s jealous child outburst usually is toward people with more power than him, in this case that powerful person is Caesar. Cassius’s jealousy leads him to tell people to go against Caesar which obviously leads to Caesar's assassination.
Although he is completely honest about his emotions, Holden still habitually lies to those around about other subjects such as his name. Even though Holden is sometimes honest, most of the time he confirms that he is a “pathological liar”, which demonstrates that he is a phony. Holden Caulfield is a phony because he frequently lies to those around him and regularly pretends to be something that he is not. He continually lies about insignificant subjects, such as his name. On multiple occasions he pretends to be tough, even though in reality he feels weak.
Despite Charlie’s strife with society, he was wrongly used for the experiment. Charlie had faced many conflicts with society, as did most mentally impaired men and women. A testament to this was Frank and Joe; people like them took advantage of people similar to Charlie for something as petty as their own amusement. All the while, the butt of their jokes – in this case, Charlie- thought that the ‘antagonists’ were his(or her) best friends or well-wishers. Imbecilic practical jokes are only a thin veil covering an uglier truth.
Vincent took on the identity of Jerome Morrow, whom was a powerful elitist. Mark showed a different side of himself when he would behave as Hard Harry. Another similarity is that they both were considered outcast in society. Vincent whom was diagnosed to be chronically ill and was labeled as an invalid. Mark appeared to be what society would label as a nerd on the outside but he was another person when his alter ego as Harry took over.
In fact, in a leader, it’s a lethal cocktail.” Graydon Carter describes this mix with arrogance as a bad mix. He says that arrogance is not a good trait in any person, especially of someone with high authority or someone in a leadership position. Arrogance is having an exaggerated sense of one person's abilities or importance. This includes being egotistical, conceited, and self-centered. In the stories “The Possibility of Evil” and “The Most Dangerous Game”, Ms. Strangeworth and General Zaroff have this arrogance to them where they think
He has intense fits of anger and violence, accompanied by reclusive tendencies and the want to be hidden and unseen. To describe his fits of violence, Mr. Enfield said that Hyde “seemed to listen with an ill-contained impatience. And then all of a sudden he broke out in a great flame of anger” (pg 69). This lack of control over his rage is consistent with many different mental conditions. And though the reader is by no means in a place to diagnose and right off all of his flaws and acts of violence as mental illness, we also can’t dismiss Hyde as a purely evil man.
Google defines madness as the state of being mentally ill, or extremely foolish behavior. Madness leads us to do crazy things that normally wouldn’t happen if we were in a sane state of mind. When humans become obsessed with power and control, it leads them into a state of isolation and madness. Can too much ambition lead someone down the path of madness? Is ambition actually a bad thing?
In Paul’s Case, the main character Paul embodies the true characteristics of narcissism. Paul exhibits greed, entitlement and he places himself above all others. Because of Paul’s narcissism, he treated others with disrespect and was often critical of other’s. Paul’s narcissism is so debilitating that he is unable to find satisfaction in anything and that is ultimately what drives him to commit suicide. Could it have been that even though Paul presented himself as a superior, important person that people should be envious of, he was actually self-consciousness with a self-esteem as fragile as glass?
The unjust treatment that the creature received from humankind was harsh and unreasonable as he wasn’t allowed the opportunity to prove his intentions were far from malicious. His loneliness, isolation and injustice from those he tried to befriend turned him into an actual monster, evidently his perspective and personality changed after being excluded. The monster had been treated unfairly by humanity “I desired love and fellowship and I was spurned. Was there no injustice in this? … Am I to be thought the only criminal when all human kind sinned against me?” (Ch.8) and without the acceptance he yearned for, he became bitter and resentful, acting out ruthlessly.
You are only encouraging the pitiless and callous creators of the game. As for your emotional and mental health, suicide is never a good idea because it is irrational. The world needs you, things change over time, you are strong and there are a lot of good things in store
Miss Kinnian shows a glimpse of reality, that not all people are nice. She tells Charlie how people can be very mean, but how he is much better than any of them. Charlie does not get this at all right now, but later on he will realize what this meant. Charlie still has some misunderstanding when he states that all his friends liked him and they never did anything that wasn’t nice. Miss Kinnian had to go away because she knew that people did not treat him fairly, and he didn’t understand that all.
They both have evil demon that is vividly realized as the artificial intelligence that forces a virtual reality on humans. Descartes mediations and the movie uses the dream metaphor of the deception of people by a demon. Descartes brings into doubt things that would otherwise be impossible to doubt. Morpheus states this in the movie when he poses the question of what reality really is. Descartes brings into doubt all the senses because once something has been known to deceive, it is prudent to not trust it.
