There are many symbols in this engaging and action packed book of boys stranded on an island making efforts to hold on to their civility of their old homes in a place with no order or morals. I will be focusing on 3 major symbols in the book that I
Time Time, as viewed in this framework, is not only defined as the time on a clock, but the way culture perceives time. Time can be viewed by the calendar; furthermore, some cultures use different calendars or have varying number of days in their week. Some cultures also see clock time as less strict. There are certain cultures where it is normal to be late and others where the time decided is the time one is expected to be there.
Time remains an important key element of life. It helps us understand the way the world functions. For instance we go through life we begin to realize that time is an element which will not ever come back once it is gone. Time is a valuable gift that people take for granted until they realize that they do not have any time left. Although time is physically the same for everyone, we all experience time in a different manner. Several factors impact our encounter with time. One of those factors is fear. Fear changes the way we perceive time, because when we become overwhelmed by this emotion time appears to slow down. An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge demonstrates the way that fear makes us appreciate time and not take it for granted.
The key to a stabilized society is law and order. Law and order prevents us from becoming savages and showing violent nature. This is what William Golding conveys in his book Lord of the Flies. His novel demonstrates that law and order keeps us from becoming the cruel and dark beings we sometimes wish to be. Power and conquest seems to always go against law and order. Law and order helps us to be stabilized, be civilized, prosper and be in harmony for our own good no matter how much we may hate laws or rules.
Societies are created to have order in the civilization by leadership. Societies have always been a key element to a successful civilization. This can be proven in our past history like WW1. For instance in WW1 societies were created through order, but between alliances. (The allies included Britain, France, Russia, Italy and the United States). These countries fought against the Central Powers which included Germany, Austria-Hungary, Ottoman Empire and Bulgaria). Showing how order can bring things together that you might not typically expect. This is also true in the Novel “Lord of the Flies”. The novel would reveal how the stranded boys would use a conch as a symbol of order on who will get to speak. You can see this on page (19) where Ralph would lift up the conch and says “ Seems to me we ought to have a chief to decide things.”Showing his suggestion for order
Rules and order are vital to our safety, governmental systems, and economy. According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of a rule is a statement that tells you what is allowed or what will happen within a particular system. According to the same source, the definition of order is the state of peace, freedom from confused or unruly behavior, and respect for law or proper authority.
Strengths: There were many people to observe throughout the day. You were able to see how many people reacted differently with their surrounding depending on who was around them and who wasn’t.
Imagine there is a bank that automatically deposits $86,400 into an account every morning. None of this money carries over from day to day. Any logical person would withdraw and take advantage of every last cent right? This bank represents time. Each day, I am credited with 86,400 seconds to make the most of. Once the sun rises the next day, I cannot go back and relive yesterday. It is not enough to live life only wishing for Friday to come faster, or for when it is time to settle into bed at night.
Without rules and regulations all civilization would plunge into chaos, as there would be nothing protecting us from one another’s most basic self serving instincts, and sometimes self-destructive habits. Often time’s simple rules and regulations protect us from ourselves, such as not touching a hot furnace or driving through an intersection when the light is red. If we look just at laws of the road one can quickly see how many devastating accidents would occur (and how many lives would be ruined) if no one followed the rules of the road. Without the utmost care to follow these rules, things that could easily be prevented may happen, resulting in very negative things.
The average life expectancy in the United States is seventy-eight years old. You might be thinking “wow, that is a long time.” One could only imagine the development that occurs during those years. Santrock (2014) defined development as, “a pattern of movement or change that begins at conception and expands all through an entire lifespan,” (1-4). Development is life-long, multidimensional, multidirectional, plastic, multidisciplinary, contextual, as well as a process that involves growth, maintenance, and regulation of loss (Santrock, 2014, 1-5). All in all, these characteristics of the lifespan perspective explain how development happens at all stages of one’s life in different contexts while the brain expands as we learn new things and grow

Throughout its history, mankind has doubtless proved its obsession with innovation. Inventions, especially those of concrete nature, have purposes majorly fixed on increasing efficiency. Conversely, many of mankind’s abstract inventions, such as the myths of classical Greece, have purposes more intent on satiating the curiosities of and providing
