Have you ever thought about what makes you, you?, or even how what you are made of can change your whole fate?
well we watched movie call “Gattaca”, and in “Gattaca” what you are made of matters, and it matches the general theme in "House Of The Scorpion" by a person that is not considered human and because he/she is not considered human all the people like him/her are made to clean and do jobs, and they can NEVER move up in the ranks and they can NEVER try and do anything different because they are discriminated against due to their imperfections, in “House Of The Scorpion” if you were a clone or an Eejit then nobody really cared about you or if you died because you “weren’t real” they didn't care if you died because they saw you as something that is imperfect, something that will work for them and that could die whenever they would just get another one but if the people that are considered human happened to die then everyone would be in tears and they did cared or acted like they cared.
The valid people in “Gattaca” they genetically modified them before birth so the parents could get exactly what they wanted with no flaws and it worked every time, soon their was very few of the in-valids left. All those people that are genetically modified get the better end of life, the better jobs, better opportunities, better everything because in “Gattaca” one of the privileges the valids got was to fly to Saturn’s 14th moon called Titan.
Genetically modifying humans at birth, you would most likely think that everything would be perfect, however in “Gattaca” Anton (who was a valid) was not perfect because if he was perfect then Vincent (who is an in-valid)would never have been able to catch up and beat him twice when they did their own swimming challenge, however those two times they went swimming together Vincent beat Anton and then Vincent had to help Anton back to the shore, Because Vincent always wanted to beat Anton so he practiced a lot and was able to beat him.
Finally, How do you think that Vincent made it through the security checks when they were always surprise checks ? How did the people not know that the original person that Vincent is pretending to be, how did they not know he was injured ?
