The pearl was the reason why everything bad started happening to Kino and his family. The pearl is the shadow because it opposes the hero. In The Pearl, Kino is the hero, the doctor is the trickster, and the pearl is the shadow. There are many different archetypes, in The Pearl, that make a big impact.

It’s obvious to believe that the soldiers would find their humanity and resist their commands, but they didn't. This concept sparked a curiosity in psychologist Stanley Milgram to discover how authoritative figures influence a person's decision making---which soon led him to conduct his most famous experiments known today.

While AUTO is seen as a very capable machine who runs the day to day operations of the Axiom, he is unable to go beyond his directive, something accomplished by Eve, MO, and Wall-E. This rigidity and inability to move beyond his directive ultimately results in AUTO being unable to truly accomplish the spirit of his overall directive which is to ensure the health and safety of all aboard the Axiom. From the scenes at the end of the film, it appears that humans are able to survive and even thrive on Earth after the return of the Axiom. Thus, it would have been in the best interest of all on board the ship if AUTO had allowed for a peaceful return to Earth. However, AUTO still resorted to following override A113, a 700-year-old directive, solely because those are his orders.
David unlike Rama did have more than one wife in fact he had about six wives and children with most of them. The main difference for both cultures is the reason behind all their actions and well doing. For David the only reason to be good is so that you are accepted by god and for Rama the sole purpose to respect others is that in the next life it won’t be bad for you. In David it’s all about following a cretin set of rules created by God himself it’s a cretin way. But Rama is just living your life do whatever you want to do, for every action you do in this life there is a counter re-action in the next
There is no longer a need for people to have children, people are no longer plagued with disease, and everyone thinks alike. Today’s society is not far from a Brave New World type of society.

Instead Bokanovsky’s Process is used to manufacture people.

Creon’s conflict involves two choices that seem equally righteous—that is, between the stability of the state and obedience to divine law. Initially, he wants to protect his people and stand against all odds. He is willing to listen to advice, take no man who does not support Thebes as his friend, and bury all bodies according to divine law. Instead, Creon opposes the gods’ law and does not follow through with his initial plans. Therefore, his tragic flaw is hubris, or excessive pride that causes his transgression again the gods.
