In a nostalgic article “Endless Summer”, Rick Bragg uses imagery to reveal how the characteristics of a long lasting summer have been changed over time, and often generations now take summer for granted. As a child, Bragg thought of summer as a symbol of time and slowly watched it “stew and simmer” away. He goes into further detail about how as a child he would play in a mud hole to pass time. This opposes his views later stated about how kids today would rather be found inside on electronics to pass their boredom. Bragg’s also states that kids today will never feel “mud mush between their toes” like he felt as a child.
In the beginning of the story , Ray Bradbury uses the vivid detail to build the setting in city. “To enter out into that silence that was the city at eight o'clock of a misty evening in November, to put your feet upon that buckling concrete walk, to step over grassy seams and make your way, hands in pockets, through the silences, that was what Mr. Leonard Mead most dearly loved to do.” Here, the description of the city at night and how the sidewalk looks, Ray Bradbury uses vivid language to show this point. The vivid language in this paragraph shows that, it is dark outside when he says “the city at eight o'clock of a misty evening

Films are immortal the people who make them however are not. As time passes fads, trends and even people fall out of fashion. The films Sunset Boulevard and Hugo both use visual symbolism to demonstrate the characters having become trapped in the past. In Sunset Boulevard this can be observed through the images of the bars on the doors and windows, the microphone at the film set and the spiraled staircase in Norma’s home while Hugo uses the train station, the motif of clockwork and the automaton to illustrate its point.

Metropolis is a 1927 German expressionistic science fiction film, directed by Fritz Lang. Much of the plot is established following influences of the first world war, and the culture of the Weimar Republic in Germany. Although criticised for its allusions to communism in the resolution of the film, Lang explores mostly themes of industrialisation and mass production, which, coincidentally, were two developments that provided a large influence in the First World War. Lang also explores themes of the Weimer view of American modernity, communism and fascist rule. Politically, this film was shot after WWI, meaning many of its influences were extracted from the horrors of the First World War.
German Expressionism has influenced thousands of films and filmmakers since the art movement began in the 1920’s. It is known for its dismissal of the standard conventions of Western filmmaking for a more off-kilter style of storytelling. Some film historians consider Metropolis (1927) to be one of the most groundbreaking German Expressionist films ever made. However, there are many instances throughout Metropolis in which it deviates from the eccentric Expressionist style. There are many obvious occurrences of expressionism during Metropolis, for example the opening machine sequence, but conventional Western techniques are also common in the film.
Conclusion: The mind is substantively different from the body and indeed matter in general. Because in this conception the mind is substantively distinct from the body it becomes plausible for us to doubt the intuitive connection between mind and body. Indeed there are many aspects of the external world that do not appear to have minds and yet appear none the less real in spite of this for example mountains, sticks or lamps, given this we can begin to rationalize that perhaps minds can exist without bodies, and we only lack the capacity to perceive them.
