  • Truman Show
    1,033 words
    Truman Show Essay The Truman Show is not only a work about contemporary society but it is also disguised with stories about birth, the mind, families, and the Bible. Thus, in addition to representing people breaking free from oppressive social systems, the characters are also disguised depictions of babies being born from the fake paradises of high-tech wombs into the world. At the same time, they portray a mind breaking free from neurosis and children breaking free from smothering and controlli...
  • Event Milligan
    886 words
    Dreams of the Andes Realm of the Incas Max Milligan 240 pp, HarperCollins Even in the late 16th century, some Spanish commentators condemned the Pizarro-led conquest of Peru for its ruthless destruction of Incan civilisation. Now it is conventional to draw the region's moral map on such lines, so that the conquistadors are cast in the role of barbarous savages, while all sympathies are reserved for the indigenous Americans and their half-millennium of physical and cultural suffering. This wonder...
  • Eliot Views London Life
    760 words
    Throughout his presentation of London and its citizens, Eliot creates a tremendous and oppressive sense of inertia and stagnation. He evokes brilliantly both the literal wasteland which World War One left and also the profound spiritual dissatisfaction which many at that time felt, as well as the need for a rebirth or resurrection. The first words of this section; 'Unreal City' convey perfectly the sense of awe and even dread with which Eliot views London life. There is something incredibly inte...

  • Our Interpretations Of Two Dimensional Images
    433 words
    Problem: Does gender influence how people view optical illusions? Background: The brain takes cues from images received from the eyes to help it interpret what is being seen. Usually this is important for things like depth perception, but occasionally it leads us astray. The cues make us think we see something that isn't true, or isn't even there. Light waves enter your eye and then enter photo receptive cells on your retina. The image that forms on your retina is flat, but you see a world of sh...

  • My First Obey Giant
    516 words
    OBEY GIANT Heidegger describes Phenomenology as "the process of letting things manifest themselves". Phenomenology attempts to enable people to see clearly something that is right before their eyes but obscured; things that are so taken for granted that they are muted by abstract observation. The first aim of Phenomenology is to reawaken a sense of wonder about one's environment. The Giant sticker attempts to stimulate curiosity and bring people to question both the sticker and their relationshi...

  • Horrific Images Owen
    416 words
    In "Mental Cases" Owen spends time in a hospital for shell-shocked veterans. He describes how bad the veterans looked, as if they came from hell. It also seems as if the veterans are between life and hell, that they are "purgatorial shadows". All the images seem to be close to death, "Baring teeth that leer like skulls' teeth wicked", "Gouged these chasms round their fretted sockets", "their heads wear this hilarious, hideous, awful falseness of set-smiling corpses". He says the veterans looked ...
  • Virtual Reality System
