The first major aspect that leads to the Creature’s fall from grace is appearance. Victor works tirelessly in academia because he believes to have found the solution to generate life. Once Victor succeeds, the Creature’s demonic appearance mortifies him. Victor describes his work with disdaining imagery, stating, “I had gazed on him while unfinished; he was ugly then; but when those muscles and joints were rendered capable of motivation, it became a thing such as even Dante could have conceived" (Shelley 36). Although Victor successfully creates what would be his greatest academic achievement, he abandons his creation, showing that the Creature's ugliness is a prevailing factor for his isolation from civilization.
The term ‘ego’ is often defined as being absorbed with yourself, or having arrogance. The actual definition of ego is a person’s sense of self-esteem or self-importance, which correlates to how Equality has become compared to his City. This collectivist society is teeming with selflessness, meaning they have no self-worth and do not consider their needs to be important, which lets the superiors control what they deem important by grouping everyone to one belief, and objectifying divergents to be evil and inconsiderate of everyone else. Even though Equality has rejected the rules much earlier in the book, he still believed he was in the wrong for being divergent and wanted to be the same as everyone else. After completely detaching himself from the City he renamed himself to Prometheus, the titan of light.
What is it that keeps up sane and bluntly… living? It’s knowing that we as humans are fighting our selfish “default settings.” It’s giving ourselves a purpose, as oppose to going with the hardwired setup in our brain. The “default setting” in our brain gives us nothing but a feeling of vanity. The feeling of not enough money.
Prometheus is anything but selfish. He does what is in the best interest for him and gaea. Also, he talks about how he plans on making a new mankind so people in the future won't go what he went through. This is very benevolent and unselfish of prometheus. So, going back to the questions.
He essentially gave up on life and wishes to be taken care of and live “for free” opting to sell his identity rather than to show the same determination Vincent did and try again. Society throwing the lives and ambitions of these “god children” is wrong because they don’t know how hard they will fight to overcome their challenges and essentially beat their genetics like Vincent
In the novel sealand is shown as non-intentionally discriminate to wards non-telepathics because the non-telepathics would feel very left out of the community of Sealand. This is shown when Petra say “Well, she say we ought to because they have to live dull, stupid lives compared with think-picture people”(Wyndham 146). This show that the if a norm goes to sealand they will feel left out and be discriminated among the others.

If humans sustain or put more effort into one force then the other, it deprives the essential interaction within the human soul and leaves it unequal and discontented. Several brilliant minds of the Enlightenment argue mostly for the continuous perfection of reason.
Ideal people do not exist and this statement is essential to recognize. Probably, every person has particular professional or personal weaknesses that prevent the development and implementation of personality and life goals. However, wise people are ready to recognize their weak features so there is the possibility to conquer them. Those who ignore weaknesses keep repeating mistakes while leading the unfulfilled lives. Therefore, the key goal of self-improvement is the evaluation of personal weakness.
A world of drastic genetic engineering, and a complete separation of the genetically elite and those naturally born seems like a scenario that will never come to be. However, this seemingly far off universe depicted in the film Gattaca, may come to be much sooner than one would expect. Gattaca illustrates a world in which genetic mutation has come to be considered the “natural” form of birth, while children born without genetic mutation have come to be considered dirty and lesser than those of genetic superiority. Although this world has nearly eliminated many forms of illness and disease, it leaves much to be desired. This world fosters elitism, hate, and segregation among other negative traits, and ultimately produces an extremely negative environment that prevents humans from reaching their true potentials.
Gatto argues that the modern educational system needs to be reformed. In his initial paragraph, Gatto describes the boredom that students suffer from in the classroom. He accredits this boredom to the currrent educational system that enforces conformity and despises creativity and originality. Creativity and originality, which are the ways in which children express themselves and therefore entertain themselves, are not welcomed in this educational system. Gatto uses personal anecdotes and historical context to argue his points.
In the movie “Gattaca”, directed by Andrew Niccol, Niccol indicates how in the future we are going to depend on technology. As well as in how we are going to become more of an unrealized expectation. It was demonstrated as genetic engineering. For example, they would get a piece of what you wanted your child to have such as height, gender, and skills. Which is bad in my opinion, Therefore, I will have to say that I disagree with the use of wanting to use Genetic engineering for childbirth for the following reasons.
