After Ender destroys the bugger planet in the final simulation, Graff tells him the truth, that he has been killing real buggers, that the simulated games are not actually simulations. Graff’s reasoning is this: “Of course we tricked you into it. That’s the whole point, [...] It had to be a trick or you couldn’t have done it. We had to have a commander with so much empathy that he would think like the buggers, [...] So much compassion that he could win the love of his underlings [...] But somebody with that much compassion could never be the killer we needed.” (Scott Card, 342) His explanation demonstrates how he believes that sacrificing Ender’s feelings by lying to him is necessary to defeat the buggers to save humanity from possible destruction, emphasizing the theme of manipulation for the common good. They make Ender do what he hates most, hurting others, by isolating him into not trusting anybody, moulding him to the perfect commander, then tricking him into believing he was only battling simulations.
This seems very pessimistic, but as the book goes on and throughout the book it shows that Bradbury could also be optimistic. I believe Ray Bradbury is mainly pessimistic with some optimism because burning houses down as our future in society is very pessimistic, also through all the "new" mechanical technology that is ruining the world of Fahrenheit 451 which is very pessimistic, yet at the same time Montag 's courageous actions Bradbury is showing his optimism.
I am not ok with this because I for see a vast and great future for our nation and this future is set to begin in the stars. Our nation the United States needs to boost its efforts in the exploration of outer space and as well as be the front runner in this pursuit for new knowledge. b. In this speech that I have written I am prepared to explain to you some possible benefits exploring space may bring to the united states and as well as tell you guys that it is ok to have great and big dreams. c. d. e. Transition: If we wish the reach are goals we must
While the possibility of time travel does seem exciting and wondrous, it also could be risky and dangerous. In Ray Bradbury’s short story, “A Sound of Thunder,” he uses the cause and effect of time travel to support his theme of not all technology brings good to the world. Society is always hungry for new technology and inventions, even at the risk of harm such as changing time. In “A Sound of Thunder”, the story shows that people are so desperate for more thrills and adrenaline rush that they risk changing the future and their own lives just to shoot a dinosaur- even though the only thing they would possibly receive is a picture. Though the time machine is still used, it seems that not everyone is blind to the dangers of time travel.
Within the contents of this text, Card illustrates how traumatic events will change a person, sometimes changing for the better. He achieves this message through his main character, Ender Wiggin. This is shown most importantly, once Ender realizes that he has been lied to, and manipulated into killing off an entire alien species, without even knowing what he has done. It is after this very traumatic childhood experience that Card illustrates how Ender decides to be the better person, by deciding that he will tell nothing but the truth, and becoming the Speaker for the Dead. This interpretation is most important because it tells the reader that not all bad, and traumatic things have to end up so horrible as everyone tends to think; oneself would only have to try to make the best of the particular situation to change themselves for the better.
More powerful than a one man should become and that made him very dangerous all of Rome would depend on what decisions Caesar made. He could have changed for the better but the possibility of him turning into a tyrant outweighed that possibility and forced our hands into action. I know all too well the other conspirators had other motives to kill Caesar. I knew this from the beginning they were most likely getting revenge for Pompey's murder. Though they did bring up a good point and it was enough to convince me to betray Caesar a man whom I loved dearly.
The “Harrison Bergeron”: The limitations of excessive legislation The “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut is a great work of satirical science fiction. It describes the equality has finally settled in the society by limiting people’s development, especially for someone who is intelligent. The story is worth people thinking about the phenomenon of extreme equality in the society today. In general, excessive legislation plays a huge important role to promote equality, notwithstanding it indirectly brings huge burden to the people on the basis of keeping equality. Firstly, the excessive legislation keeps equality basically by concerned people’s execution.
One of theses behaviors is self delusion affecting the people reality. These self delusions keep people from going insane, to hide reality from themselves. This is important because this these characters are able live on Mars to create a new life. Some people on mars show their dark behaviors, but some them make illusions to keep them from going insane. The self destruction on the war on earth is showing us the reflection of people.
“We all travel in time. During the last year, I 've moved forward one year and so have you,” (Spaceplace.Nasa.gov). The question that is much more likely being asked is can you speed up time, or put it in reverse. The answer is humans truly don 't know. Physicists theorize that reverse time travel could be impossible, but think that it could be very possible to travel forward.
The Rainbow Gravity Theory predicts that gravitational fields near supermassive objects will stretch light differently depending on its energy level. These theories are well respected due to their ability to explain convolute concepts and the effort being put forward to prove these theories. To think that all of this stems from determination to understand the world around us, is just simply amazing. It also ties into the idea that “The golden age of science has yet to begin.” There is far too much that we don’t know for us to even start the golden age. We have advanced enough to say we’ve come a long way but we are nowhere near the peak.
