Matt Arpin Murder, Mayhem, and Mystery Essay 1 As society moves farther into the 21 st century, technology continues to push boundaries and challenges what is accepted by society. The primary question at the center of such scientific progress is: should we create things that may not be morally justifiable? Furthermore, is it right for us to move towards such a high degree of control over our lives that we become like gods, deciding how life is made, what lives are made, and do our best to defeat death itself. And that, I think, is the primary driving force behind most scientific development: a method to defeat death, increase our control, and improve our lives. That is why people are seeking ways to defeat disease, improve overall health, and make sure they live for as long as possible, because death is the greatest unknown, and the thing that people fear the most. This is also the reason that drugs and other such things are developed: people fear death, so they want to enjoy life to the fullest, and that is why they create drugs to expand their reality. This is why I believe Jekyll created his potion. He felt his life coming to an end, and he wished to give in to his darker impulses, escape from responsibility, and embrace a freedom like which he had never experienced.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
