In The Penal Colony By Franz Kafka The complication of the human brain goes beyond the need to keep traditions We live in a world of transitions based on moralistic facts and materialistic predominance The evolution of man is no longer the overcoming of itself but the universal answer to its own meaning Can we control ourselves Or it is just a whim to be someone To know oneself one should assert oneself Psychology is action not thinking about oneself We continue to shape our personality all our life If we knew ourselves perfectly we should dieAlbert Camus The officer a peculiar character In the Penal Colony surpasses the meaning of the medieval way of reasoning As I penetrated into the reading of Franz Kafka I realized that the officer is not really he but a true vivid portrait of the past the old commandant The way he tries to transcend his culture and himself lies under different layers of misery the apparatus The bite of conscience like the bite of a dog into a stone is a stupidity Nietzsche Turning away for a moment the apparatus plays an important role to the development of the story The officer the husband the apparatus the wife a true symbol of dependency a marriage The officer obsessed with the apparatus and its functioning creates a sense of love to the savage impulses of the uneducated man The Neanderthal atmosphere is felt by the need of blood to create justice and order Demons do not exist any more than gods do being only the products of the psychic activity of manSigmund Freud As an old phrase says A captain must sink with his ship is the resemblance of the officer A higher authority no longer sustained his power and his desperation to continue started to take over his actions Begging to the explorer was in vane demonstrating the apparatus was useless
