The apexes in their life are an example of another aspect existentialism touches upon, and that is the absurd. Meursault’s meaningless crime later appoints him a sentence of an inevitable death and the invisible man’s speech lands him underground for quite a while works to reveal the irrationality in our lives we are living in the world right now but for what reason and why at this time or at this place. Existentialists believed that to truly live you must have tackled this inevitable fact of irrationality of the world, now giving both characters a chance to actually comprehend how the world
The responder can develop a superior knowledge of dystopian societies through the comparison of Victor Kelleher’s novel ‘Taronga’ and Neil burgers Film ‘Divergent’, as both can be perceived as instable tales.

Drift culture represents the “ontological illusion” that technology has over man, but its embodiment as “the essence of the data storm that envelops us” doesn’t configure with Kroker’s assertion that it will be a “point where the will to technology turns back on itself” (Kroker 15). For it to be a movement, it requires points of succession over time that will slowly transform man into the “new species” that has to learn again the “language of social media” (Kroker 16). Yet, Kroker describes it as a moment that will lead to “crashing boundaries, volatizing society” and the overthrow of “great referential icons of power, sex, consciousness” (Kroker 16).
