Rainsford also had no one to count on. When he fell off the boat Whitney was in the cabin and no one was there for him. He had to survive all alone in the wild all by himself.

In the dialogue, Socrates claims that after a prisoner leaves the cave and sees the sun (which symbolizes truth and knowledge), he will not participate in the cave dwellers’ ignorance. Similarly, individuals who chose to become enlightened to the true nature of reality do not partake in the ignorance of humanity; instead they encourage individuals to believe in philosophical knowledge. The cave dwellers believe that the shadows on the walls are real, just like individuals accept the reality of the world with which they are presented; however, they are both illusions, which are perceived. This is because over centuries human perception is merely a shadow of reality and individuals are like the cave dwellers who believe the perceptions created by society (Cleveland). Therefore, humans need to raise past the perceptions governed and taught by society in order to break through ignorance and travel on a path of
What makes Secondhand Lions such fun is the comedy used throughout. Starting with when Walter first arrives at his Uncles’ house to the end of the movie where they manage to crash a plane, upside down, in the side of a barn. When Walter first arrives at the beginning of the movie he quickly realizes that his uncles do not approve of visitors and have no idea how to take care of a child. They even go so far as to warn him that they don’t know anything about kids and if there is something he needs he will have to find it himself or learn to do without, and if they “kick off in the middle of the night” (McCanlies, 2003), he’s on his own. The only other people Walter meets while living with his uncles are the various traveling salesmen that his uncles see as their personal form of entertainment, shooting their shotguns at them to see how quickly they will run away, distant cousins who want Hub and Garth’s money (part of the reason they tell Walter they want to keep him around when he attempts to run away to find him mother is that the other relatives will hate it), and greasers that Hub resoundingly beats up once he breaks out of the hospital after a heart
Captain Phillips tried to defend the boat from the pirates every way possible to stop them from getting on the boat and he defended while they were on the boat also. He did every protocol he needed to do to keep the pirates from boarding but failed. When the pirates boarded he let his crew down below deck to save them while he faced the pirates like a hero. He locked down everything letting his crew be away from the pirates. Captain Phillips also tried to save his crew by acting like the ship was broken and that there were no more people on board, but the pirates did not believe him.
Equality’s tunnel resembles Plato’s cave, and the Scholars represent those still not in reality. In fact, “The Council of Scholars has said that we all know the things which exist and therefore the things which are not known by all do not exist,” a mindset parallel to those unaware of reality (52). Equality travels to the Home of Scholars, attempting to bring them into the light, yet just as those in the Plato’s Allegory, the Scholars do not believe him. It is not until after Equality escapes into the forest, however, that he leaves the cave of morality: “We remembered we are the Damned. We remembered it and laughed” he jested (80).
That's when Cheswick jams his fingers into the grate at the bottom of the pool and drowns himself. This may have been prevented if McMurphy would have stood up for Cheswick against Nurse Ratched but he didn't. Therefore this shows McMurphy has tremendous power now in the ward and Nurse Ratched knows it. That’s you can say Nurse Ratched fears McMurphy because he's not like the rest of the patients that she can control McMurphy is different. For my third and final example is how McMurphy organizes the Deep Sea Fishing trip and just needs one more man for the trip.
After witnessing Lupito’s death, Lupito still remains within Antonio’s mind wandering like a lost soul not knowing the ending to his death. He still continues to question whether god has helped his spirit or if he is forever lost to wander. “It is the soul of Lupito, they cried in fear, doomed to wander the river at night because the waters washed his soul away!”(Pg. 26) This is the first placement of Antonio’s religious ambivalence. Antonio may think to himself that seeing someone die is a sin, the idea of growing up thinking that the world is perfectly put together and being restricted from reality is a sin, restriction is a sin.
They both met that night knowing nothing about each other, yet that one meet changes their lives in the future without them even knowing it.

In the beginning of the novel Reef is putting on that tough guy ‘I do not care’ look and “Reef wheeled on her. ‘Jesus, Scar [what do she want him to do?] Visit her?
