Lord of the Files





The Terminal Man was about the neuropsychiatric section of a hospital doing a breakthrough
surgery to help reverse the effects of psychomotor epilepsy. The patient's name was Harry
Benson. Harry had psychomotor epilepsy because he hit his head in a car accident and it
resulted in brain damage. Harry was a good subject for the operation because he was
brilliant, being a computer programmer with top level government security clearance. The
type of epilepsy that he had caused him to black out for periods of time and during his
blackouts he would become extremely violent and when he woke up he remembered nothing. The
operation would envolve the inserting of two electrodes into the brain along with a
microcomputer in his neck and a plutonium power pack located under his shoulder near his
armpit. Harry had his operation soon after he was admitted to the hospital. The operation
took roughly three hours and in that time they drilled into his head and inserted the
electrodes. They also put in the microcomputer and the power pack at this time. After the
operation was over Harry was heavily sedated and put in a room. After the sedatives wore
off Harry snuck into a closet and stole an orderly's gown and left the hospital. He was
picked up by a lady named Angela Black, who Harry killed when they got to her apartment.
After the investigation of the murder of Angela Black Dr. Ross went home to take a shower.

  • ALCATRAZ ISLAND AND PRISON
    ALCATRAZ ISLAND AND PRISON Alcatraz Island has quite a distinct history. Many people know that Alcatraz served as a federal prison, but most are reluctant to know that this island served as fort. Built before the Civil War, it served two main purposes. First, that it was to guard the San Francisco bay area from enemy ships against a foreign invasion, and second, to hold hostage prisoners of war or POW\'s as they were called.

    None Provided1 Vision and Movement When we discuss our brain, we usually focus on the brains ability to think. That task alone is extremely complex and involved, but the brain also has many other tasks. Most of the time the brain is on autopilot, meaning that most of the activities preformed are just automatic. Our five senses; sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell, are automatically preformed in our brains. We don\'t have to think about how something sounds, we just hear it and we then interpre

    Assisted Suicide Kalem 1 Walking through the corridors of any hospital would show one several things. There would be people healing, hurting, dying, and coping with all sorts of problems. Even though some of them may share the same misfortunes, they are separated into two categories: those who are still fighting for their lives and those who have given up. To those who have given up, the thought of suicide always arises because one no longer has the desire to deal with a problem and they just wa

  • Euthanasia
    Euthanasia The word euthanasia is derived from the Greek word "eu" for good and "thantos" which means death and originally referred to intentional mercy killing. But the word it euthanasia has acquired a more complex meaning in modern times.

Those who contest euthanasia believe that man does not have the right to end another person\'s life no matter what pain they

    Euthanasia13 Many people confronted with a terminal illness are confused about what they can do as a dying person. This is when euthanasia is often discussed. Deciding that this is the only option is a long drawn out process. Being that a large part of American society is of Christian beliefs, it is necessary to look at morality based on religion. The main pro-suicide argument deals completely within the issue of choice. If life is seen as a covenant, or temporary loan from God, the freedom to c
