Comtemplation of Regeneration in “Heroes”.

Posted in Fiction, Illness, Science, TV, Writing on January 29, 2008 by geniusadvice

Let’s consider the last episode of Heroes and Adam Monroe, the horrible mastermind who can regenerate from almost any wound. Of course, it is obviously implied that a devastating blow to the brain would stop the regeneration from death, basically, and this also connotes that the special and superhuman abilities originate from the brain. This is supported by the fact Sylar, a.k.a. Gabriel Gray, “eats” the brains of his victim to gain additional powers for himself.

I dislike the end of Adam, however, as he is seen to be trapped helplessly in a casket and buried for all eternity. Of course, I would think that logically, death would be imminent due to suffocation or starvation. Unless, of course, these ‘Regenerators’ are some kind of perpetual machine, able to create oxygen for themselves, or somehow become autotrophs.

Let’s face it, the oxygen’s gonna run out. Take that Tom Kring.

That’s disappointment on his face.

A River Runs Through It..

A river runs through it

Streams intersect it

Oceans cover it and

Seas flood around it

And many, many times I have tried
to cross this riddle

On a makeshift raft
Tossed and turned by the waves

Yet getting nowhere near
the banks, beaches
of wit and understanding
and of lost oars.
