Milo as a Hero in the Phantom Tollbooth

...There are six parts to both inner and outer journeys as a hero, and Milo from the Phantom Tollbooth goes through all of these steps in his journey to find who he is. This journey is an outer journey because he physically leaves home and goes to an unknown place. It’s also an inner journey because he mentally leaves not knowing who he is or what he’s doing with his life, but when he returns, he is grateful for his life and realizes where he went wrong previously. Therefore, Milo seems to be a hero. Taking both an inner and outer journey which qualifies as a hero journey seems to make him a hero, but there are other reasons that are shown in the story that make him a hero. In the Phantom Tollbooth, Milo takes both an outer and an inner journey in the story, and there are qualities in the story that make him a hero. Before Milo leaves his home, he doesn’t know exactly what he’s doing with his life. If he’s one place, he wants to be somewhere else, or if he’s doing one thing he always wants to do another thing. When he finds an automobile and a tollbooth at his home, he sets it up because he has never had much adventure in his life. Therefore, he completes the first step of an outer journey: leaving home. Once he leaves home, he arrives at two towns— Digitopolis and Dictionopolis. He meets many confusing people on his way along his journey, and receives help from most of them, which completes step two of an outer journey. In this sense, he is travelling from known to unknown,......

The Phantom Tollbooth Final Respnse

...Milo ’s journey is one that I know he is bound to never forget. During this journey he endures much wisdom and knowledge as he visits many locations such as dictionopolis, the forest of sight, valley of sound, and digitopolis, where he is intrigued by the many facts forced upon him. Like Milo I would need to spend more time in dictionopolis which includes the market, the Which, and the gift of words. “We determine if we use a word correctly by the way it is stated to us, or how it is used in a sentence.” Those are the very words I was saying to myself, when I notice I was lost in the Doldrums and could not find my way out. Do I go left, right, up, or down? My god, how did I even get here? I want to go ……And before I could even finish my sentence the not so wicked Which stood before me. The first question I asked was “Where am I?” And she clearly stated “Well, you already know where you are, the question you should be asking is how you got here. I mean that would be the more logical question to ask if you indeed really want to get out of here.” Yeah, yeah, yeah, I mumbled…So what am I doing here in these unpleasant doldrums. She replied saying “This is where you end up when you don’t pay attention and don’t think. I cried out “Don’t Pay Detention…. Lady I pay to get out of Detention every time I get one.” And she quickly responded “My point exactly.” You see I said when you don’t pay ATTENTION!!!! Not pay DETENTION, You ignorant child!!!!!

Compute the amount of phantom profit that would result if the company used FIFO rather than LIFO. The company uses the periodic method. FIFO: $1,410 150 units multiplied by $8 equals $1,200 30 units multiplied by $7 equals $210 $1,200 plus $210 equals $1,410 LIFO: $1,160 100 units multiplied by $6 equals $600 80 units multiplied by $7 equals $560 $600 plus $560 equals to $1,160 Therefore, the phantom profit would be $250 if the company were to use the FIFO rather than LIFO.

...However eerie and unpleasant Scrooge's midnight adventures have been, they are all fun and games until the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come shows up. This thing isn't even called a ghost any more—Dickens changes the terminology and starts referring to this super menacing cloaked figure as a "phantom." The text doesn't really explain this word change, but we're guessing it has something to do with the fact that the other two Christmas ghosts were a lot more human in their behaviour than this mutely pointing dude. The phantom's exit is a little more predictable than that of the other two ghosts. Sure, it's stressful when the thing disappears without telling Scrooge whether he'll get a do-over, but, hey, at least it's not birthing claw-footed babies in front him. It's the little things. Here is how the good-bye goes down: "Are these the shadows of the things that Will be, or are they shadows of things that May be, only? […] Why show me this, if I am past all hope! […] Assure me that I yet may change these shadows you have shown me, by an altered life!" […] In his agony, [Scrooge] caught the spectral hand. It sought to free itself, but he was strong in his entreaty, and detained it. The Spirit, stronger yet, repulsed him. Holding up his hands in a last prayer to have his fate reversed, he saw an alteration in the Phantom's hood and dress. It shrunk, collapsed, and dwindled down into a bedpost. (4.151-166) Scrooge has gone from fighting the ghosts off to trying desperately to......

Merleau-Ponty: The Phantom Limb

...Merleau-Ponty analyzes the phantom limb experience using a framework that consists of physiological and psychological forces. Physiological facts, which he defines as those in space, and psychological facts cannot account for the phenomenon of phantom limbs on their own, instead the two must be fused together and work with other theories in order to formulate the true experience of the phantom limb. When diving into the exploration of the phantom limb experience, Merleau-Ponty discovers one of the most vital parts of non-personal, or pre- personal dimensions, of our existence. He starts his paper of by discussing how after an amputation, the patient will continue to experience the missing limb as if it were still a part of...

...The Persian is a major character from the Gaston Leroux novel The Phantom of the Opera. In the book he is the one who tells most of the background of Erik's history. He is referred to by Erik as the "daroga" (داروغه, Persian for "police-chief") and his memoirs are featured in five chapters of the novel. He appears in the Susan Kay fan novel Phantom as a major character named Nadir. In the 1925 silent film The Phantom Of The Opera, his character was changed into a secret French policeman named Ledoux that had been studying Erik as the Phantom for months. He still helps and accompanies Raoul to rescue Christine. In the musical, he does not appear although aspects of his character are merged with Madame Giry's. For instance, Madame Giry shows Raoul where Erik lives, however, unlike the Persian, she does not accompany him to Erik's lair. According to his account of himself in the novel, the Persian served as the chief of police (daroga) in the court of the Shah of Persia during the years that Erik was there. He refers to these times as "the rosy hours of Mazenderan". Being kindhearted, he helped Erik escape from Persia when the Shah-in-Shah ordered him executed, a trick that involved presenting a body washed up on the shore as Erik's. When news of the escape spread, the Shah-in-Shah punished the Persian by stripping him of his property and sending him into exile. The Persian later traveled to Paris and took up living in a small, middle-class flat in the Rue de Rivoli, across......

Phantom Of The Opera

...After completing The Phantom of the Opera, I remained stunned! The novel was absolutely phenomenal! I fell in love with every single aspect of the story; the characters, the plot, the setting, the themes, the figurative language. Everything, all of it was (as I will say frequently) beyond compare. Now getting on to the story itself… Like I mentioned in my first reflection my predictions were wrong and as I read on I learned what was wrong with them. For example, I predicted a forbidden love although with whom it would be with, there was in fact, a forbidden love. The forbidden love was between the rich, aristocrat, Raoul, and the poor, peasant girl, Christine Daaé who was kidnapped by the phantom, Erik. The story basically goes like so: Erik...

Joyas Galmoral Analysis

...“So much held in a heart in a lifetime. So much held in a heart in a day, an hour a moment. We are utterly open with no one in the end- not mother and father, not wife or husband, not lover, not child, not friend.” Brian Doyle is widely recognized as a remarkable storyteller that depicts life lessons for young people. In Joyas Valadores, Doyle introduces us many aspects of writing. He uses a variety of details that help us imagine and feel real life situations. Joyas Valadores is a heartfelt short essay that has creative imagery, a variety of metaphors, and a powerful way of using repetition. Throughout Joyas Valadores, a great amount of imagery is used. When Doyle is describing the hummingbird in his story, he tells us to take a moment to consider the hummingbirds that did not open their eyes today. He goes on and says, “Each the most amazing thing you have ever seen, each thunderous wild heart the size of an infant’s fingernail, each mad heart silent, a brilliant music stilled.” Can you imagine the size of an infant’s fingernail? In reality, when we imagine the infant’s fingernail we get amazed by how small the hummingbird’s heart is compared to a human’s heart. Another way Doyle uses imagery in Joyas Valadores is in the last paragraph, “ You can brick up your heart... and down comes in an instant, felled by a woman’s second glace… a cat with a broken spine dragging itself into the forest to die, the brush of your mother’s papery ancient hand in the thicket of your hair…” A...

Phantombulb Syndrome Research Paper

...A phantom limb is when a body part is amputated, but the brain still gives the person the feeling that it is still there. Most people who experience this have phantom limb pain. Phantom limb pain is pain that is felt in the amputated limb even though it is not physically present. This mind-boggling phenomenon is called phantom limb syndrome and most amputees experience it. Phantom limb syndrome was first discovered in 1500’s by a French military surgeon named Amboise Pare. He noticed that the amputee soldiers complained of pain or sensations in the limb that was no longer there. We now know that “virtually all amputees experience phantom sensations, painful or not, after limb amputation. Non‐painful phantom sensations rarely pose a clinical problem. However, in some amputees, the phantom becomes the site of severe pain, which may be exceedingly difficult to treat” (Br. J. Anaesth). How can a medical...

The Secrets of the Brain

...Well, as Chris pointed out, I study the human brain, the functions and structure of the human brain. And I just want you to think for a minute about what this entails. Here is this mass of jelly, three-pound mass of jelly you can hold in the palm of your hand, and it can contemplate the vastness of interstellar space. It can contemplate the meaning of infinity and it can contemplate itself contemplating on the meaning of infinity. And this peculiar recursive quality that we call self-awareness, which I think is the holy grail of neuroscience, of neurology, and hopefully, someday, we'll understand how that happens. 0:51OK, so how do you study this mysterious organ? I mean, you have 100 billion nerve cells, little wisps of protoplasm, interacting with each other, and from this activity emerges the whole spectrum of abilitiesthat we call human nature and human consciousness. How does this happen? Well, there are many ways of approaching the functions of the human brain. One approach, the one we use mainly, is to look at patients with sustained damage to a small region of the brain, where there's been a genetic change in a small region of the brain. What then happens is not an across-the-board reduction in all your mental capacities, a sort of blunting of your cognitive ability. What you get is a highly selective loss of one function, with other functions being preserved intact, and this gives you some confidence in assertingthat that part of the brain is somehow involved in......

The Process of Phantom Eviction

...The Practice of Phantom Eviction Having an unwanted guest in the home is never an easy thing and something no one likes to deal with, especially when that guest is a soul stuck between the living and the dead. Recognizing the presence of a spirit, ghost, or phantom, in the home is usually hard for us to do. However, when we do come to terms with the fact that there is indeed a phantom lurking about in our home, preying on our fears, having a simple field guide to direct us is a must have, and I have provided here just such an effective tool to use along the journey of evicting any disembodied nuisance from the home. During phase one, what we need to remember is that most phantoms will not try to harm us, so being afraid and rushing to take drastic measures against the phantom is not the best initial approach. Often times, this will only make the phantom angry and cause him to become more unruly in the home. To easily rid the home of this entity, try taking a calm and passive approach. Don’t simply ask the phantom to leave because that would be too abrupt. Create a civil relationship with the phantom by respecting it’s presence even if it is not welcomed. Start by cooking something delicious every evening in your home, as if entertaining Martha Stewart. Who doesn’t love the aroma of a good pork tenderloin seasoned with salt, garlic, and sage, cooking in the oven?! Most phantoms will get the hint that they are not invited to this tasty dinner and excuse themselves from......
