But the walls are higher and more numerous than even he can possibly imagine. “Human” has no relevance when the body is gone, when physical need is diminished, when individuality is marked only by an intuitive sense of one another’s “colors,” or auras, if you will, and by the retention of one’s last bastion of autonomy: memory....   [tags: Science] 3748 words

He sees, smells, and touches everything around him.  But I'd like to focus on one of the quieter moments - a moment of convergence.  The narrative encloses Stephen in a cloud of his own past, present, and future as he stands in a Dublin courtyard:   He began to beat the frayed end of his ashplant against the base of the pillar.  Had Cranly not heard him?  Yet he could wait.  The talk about him ceased for a moment: and a soft hiss fell again from a window above.  But no other so...   [tags: Portrait Artist Young Man] 988 words
