Jurassic Park Essay, Research Paper
Jurassic Park is a book about the cloning of dinosaurs and they are used as the park entertainment on an island. In this park where dinosaurs are the attraction, not every thing will go as planed. Reading this book will teach someone how Michael Crichton feels about biological science and the cloning of extinct animals. There are things that caused the park to be unsuccessful. Dr. Malcom and Dennis Nedry where two of the parks problems, and the other was the nature of the animals.
Dr. Malcom uses the chaos theory to predict the collapse of the park. In the beginning of the book Malcom is introduced to the story. One of the first things Dr. Malcom talks about is the chaos theory. In the first conversation with him in the book Malcom said “Theory tells me that the island will quickly proceed to behave in unpredictable fashion”(Crichton 76). What Malcom means by this is that without even visiting the park he can say that it will fail. Dr. Malcom is a problem in the story because convinces other people that Jurassic Park is a bad idea.
Dennis Nedry is the computer expert at Jurassic Park. He deals with all the problems in the parks computer system. Nedry works in the control room with Arnold. Arnold didn t care much for Nedry when he said “That idiot Nedry turned off the security systems”(Crichton 177). Arnold said this after Dennis Nedry had put a bug in the computer system that shut almost every thing down in Jurassic Park. Nedry is a problem
because he has full control of the park from his desk. He being a computer expert can cause any computer system problem he wants.
Nature is the biggest problem Jurassic Park has at becoming successful. As stated by Dr. Malcom in the book, he said “Life will find a way”(Crichton ). He meant that the dinosaurs will find a way to live the way they want. This is something that scientists didn t think about when they brought dinosaurs back to life. The scientists didn t think about the way that nature would want to live and decided that they could control it.
All these problems add up and there is not anything that will stop it. Dr. Malcom, Dennis Nedry and the way of nature all caused things to go wrong. There is not any way to control nature. Scientists are too narrow-minded when they try to do something that no one else has accomplished before.
