Braydon's Argument Against Metaship

Great Essays
The contract presented before Braydon was hard to ignore, making him raise both his eyebrows. To make sure he fully comprehended, he read the words once more.
By signing, you agree that any and all disputes with Metaship and its affiliates will be resolved informally and will be handled by Metaships internal intercession system. Under no circumstances will you or anyone on your behalf take any sort of legal action against Metaship or its affiliates and employees.
By signing this contract, you also agree with Metaships beliefs including its opposition to psychiatry and governmental standards and laws.
This wasn’t the only part of the contract that made him uncomfortable.
“By signing this, I dedicate my entire life span?” Braydon stared again

Where does it say you can’t? Trust me, once you know more about our beliefs, our philosophy, you won’t want to follow anything else. You won’t fall for the lies that the world tells you anymore. You’ll be enlightened whether you stay here or not. We ask so little of you but will give you so much in return.”
Although he had doubts, his hand unconsciously sprung to life and signed the dotted line with a shaky signature.
“I knew you’d come round, Mr Thomas.” The woman smiled, her red lips parting on her flawlessly ivory face. “Now, we just need to unblock your mind.”
“Unblock my mind?” Braydon scratched his cheek.
“Please don’t worry, Sir. This is for your own benefit. We want to clear your mind of all suffering, to help you think straight and realise your potential.” The woman slid off her chair and power walked towards a dark oak door to her left. “Please, just talk to my associate. I’m sure she will put your mind at ease.”
Before he knew it, he had risen from his seat and was already walking towards the door, the glass of water and contract that were in his hands evaporated. Confusion dominated his thoughts, but he had to know more.
The woman brushed his arm and he took in her intoxicating sweet scent.
“Once again, we are so pleased you’re joining us.” She winked as she opened the door. “Please, take a seat and she’ll be right in to see

“Close your eyes, Sir and let me do my magic.” Her smile was mischievous as her body inclined nearer though her arms remained propped on the chair. “Yes, that’s it, let me ask you a few questions.”
“Ok.” Reluctantly, Braydon closed his eyes though he had to admit, he did feel a little sleepy. “Tell me the first time you felt ridiculed for being your true self.”

“I was a child…I could see things others couldn’t.”
His eyes were still closed, but he could still hear Scarlett’s soft voice clearly.
“That’s great, Mr. Thomas. How old were you?”
“Maybe about ten? I don’t know it was decades ago.”
“Please think back. Tell me more about the experience.”
“I was with a friend, a neighbour I grew up with. I didn’t realise I saw things differently to him until that day.”
“Please, explain more.”
Braydon bit the inside of his right cheek, it was a dark recollection and one he’d bottled up until

Another time where Kate shows her tame, calm, sweet self is in act 5, scene 1. Kate proclaims to Petruchio, “Nay, I will give thee a kiss.

    She was fully aware that he has feelings for her and used that in conjunction with her ability to act like a weak lady. In this case she was very subtle by saying that “It is something out of all reason ; its means advice and help, and favor.”(47). Ibsen uses diction to make Nora’s request seem more sincere even though she had thought of using Dr Rank for his money. Her language, the way it is written gives off a tone of innocence and meekness…

    Maybe she is telling the truth after all, and Tajomaru’s humor was simply meant to be taken in jest. This is the very conflict, however, that Kurosawa wants his viewers to face. While it is easy to get caught up in a game of pointing fingers and determining the truth, such efforts are futile. Our adopted role as a sort of judge seems even more enticing as we become the magistrate of the film. Characters speak to the audience directly in pleading their case.…

    From here, it is implied that the speaker takes pleasure in something that has to do with a dress. Looking at the second line: “Kindles in clothes a wantonness,” we are further looking into the speaker’s deep pleasure in clothing. By only looking at the word “kindles,” it is clear that this is a sexual pleasure for the speaker because it is an arousing action for the speaker. Throughout the first eleven lines of this poem, the speaker keeps on describing this woman in a dress. These lines suggest that the speaker takes great pleasure in the way this dress is fit around this unnamed woman.…
