MUTATION
Can't blame religion, radiation, Old people or anyone or anything for humans to be bias of what is
"normal"
No matter what you do stop mutation,
it is futile since it is always going to
happen as long as radiation and
chemicals exist.
Popular science fiction trope because . . .
Can learn about how nobody is perfect or can meet up to everyone's expectations of normal.
You can't decide your genes
A change in the bases that make up a particular gene
There are three types of mutations: positive, negative, and neutral.

Mutagens can cause mutations in DNA





Mental
vs.
Physical
The mutation mostly shown in "The Chrysalids" is neutral.
One of the A, C, G, T bases left out, added, or substituted for another
Genetic Mutation
easier to hide
in plain sight
difficult to hide
mutation
compulsion
Viruses can cause genes to be misread or copied incorrectly
Cigarette smoke, radiation from X rays or UV rays, pollutants such as mercury, household chemicals
High speeds and vibration would disturb the arrangement of the
bases
Nuclear radiations have very high frequencies, travel at high speeds, have high penetration capacity
- Tribulation was meant to give humanity a chance to evolve from the Old people
- Like the humans He created but God has the
ability to read the mind of men and know
their sins and thoughts
- A.k.a. the think-shape people
- Stronger empathy for one
another
- Easier communication
- To read peoples thoughts and "behind thinks" (Petra)
- Compulsion (Petra)
Whats the Norm?
- different in every city/country
- a group-held belief
- Mutants don't have a decision but are still judged harshly
- conformity is accepted;
anything else frowned upon
Prejudice
Atomic war
"Mushroom War"
Prejudice and atomic war
No war and protect
humans, acting as superheroes
No prejudice against mutants
Everyone is a mutant except
Finn the Human (and minor
characters)
Judges and mental
mutation
