Is he a creator or not? The answer seems to be evident: he changed DNI of cells, in fact, created noocytes, so, he is simply a creator. However, it`s not so evident in the novel.

Therefore, Vergil has a conflict with Genetron and tries to create his own invention and a laboratory.
Personal Freedom vs Intellectual Holocaust In Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, Montag’s desire for personal freedom constantly conflicts with the ongoing intellectual holocaust. During this era, society discourages the opportunity to think independently because they live under the impression that “not everyone [is] born free and equal, as the constitution says, but made equal” (Bradbury 146) Many technological advancements evolve to occupy everyone and society enforces many rules to ensure that everyone lives equally. However, Montag meets Clarisse, who exposes him to her extroverted lifestyle and encouraged him to question his lifestyle. He soon realizes that he is not happy and the desire for a new life advances him to seek both personal and intellectual freedom. As a result of the desire for uniformity, society removes the majority of the freedom that characters can have.
The opposition of technology in Fahrenheit 451 discourages the technological advancement of the modern world, resists the advantages of innovation, and scrutinizes the younger generation’s interest in technological advances. Bradbury implies in Fahrenheit 451 that the advancements of technology in the modern world will only lead to our downfall. The resistance of innovation is clearly seen throughout Fahrenheit 451 by the blatant referencing of television taking away the need for human interaction, fireproof housing leading to the burning of books, and faster cars pointing to irresponsibility. Bradbury implies that the progression in technology will only lead the next generation into an ignorant stupor. Fahrenheit 451 devalues the growth
Bradbury takes issue with a technological era that is an intellectual dark age stemming from increasing amounts of trivial thoughts. If the issue is not resolved, Bradbury foreshadows a future dystopia where people live an empty, oblivious life where people idolize technology. In contrast, Henry speaks to the convention about the grim future of the colonists in the event of a refusal for revolution and the government’s abuse of power, a theme also seen in Fahrenheit 451. Like the government that Fahrenheit 451 describes, the British are beguiling the colonists with illusions of a mutually beneficial partnership between the two parties and are denying the rights of the colonists. Yet, a key difference between the two texts is that Bradbury conveys his message using a dystopian novel while Henry is using his speech.
“Products of a Society” Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is fiction novel based on the struggles of Montag as he tries to break free from the dystopian society the United States turned into. The purpose of this paper is to show the majority of the people in this novel are products of the society/environment they 're in. The setting determines the characters and their personalities by controlling what and how they learn. In this book’s case it is through the suppression of books and free thought. Where owning a book can get your house burned and free thinking is severely frowned upon.
Kreon’s son Haimon warned him before the execution of Antigone that it was not what the God’s wanted. He stated, “Father, the God’s implant intelligence in humans. Of all our properties, that is the supreme one. I lack the power and the training to tell you you’re wrong, and that’s just as well. But perhaps a second opinion will be valuable.” (Page 48 lines 828-832).
When authors create a dystopian society, they often try to predict the future and maybe even include a few similarities that relate to present day society. Ray Bradbury created a life in the future similar to today but without the pleasure of having books. Kurt Vonnegut created a world where everyone is equal to no restraint. Finally, Veronica Roth shined light on a future where people must choose their own path where they will be stuck forever. Technology in Fahrenheit 451, government in “2081”, and equality in the novel Four, are all examples of dystopian life the varies from modern day society.
“Imagine There’s No Heaven” is an article in which Salman Rushdie, the author, presents an atheistic view where religion is pointless, and a higher being is non-existent. Like most, he questions how humans came into existence, and how the world will end, but rather than using a religious approach, he uses a scientific approach in which his answers are explained by science. His message is that religion has created boundaries for humans to not be able to be themselves. He continues to express that religion acts as a prison for many and as a way to gain power over the few,also to keep us from reaching our potential. He speaks of the deconstruction of religion because it makes people’s need to believe in something for an emotional increase.
Government has the authority to lead the people, but there is an extent of their control. The novel Clockwork Orange, by Anthony Burgess, depicts a dystopian world of extreme crime and violence. However, while the depicted society does condemn violence, it also facilitates the destruction of humanity and the autonomy of individuals. When a human is depersonalized and stripped of their free will, they are simply the “clockworks” under the control of their oppressors. They are no longer a person; rather, they are the robot that is programmed to give more power to the government.
You may think that by “starting over” in a society is going to make it perfect. But in Fahrenheit 451, it proves that theory wrong and ends up to be a bigger problem than it was before. It teaches everybody a lesson of not trying to avoiding different opinions and sadness. Fahrenheit 451 is suppose to be a Utopian society by trying to eliminating all emotions and books until one person finally speaks up about their feelings on the laws. While their society looks vastly different on the surface from our society but once you look deeper into the story, the different societies have many similarities.
