My Reflection
After reading
The Maze Runner
and researching the issue that presents itself, I feel as though human experimentation is wrong and that technology will solve most problems in the future. The government performed a lot of experiments on humans in the past, especially during the twentieth century, yet I believe in the future the people will not allow the government to do such experiments and technology will be ever more advanced, so the government will not need to do human experimentation. However, if human experiments were to be performed by the government in the future I believe the people would fight against it but there would be no way to prepare for it.
The government will have to perform experiments on humans in order to find cures and solutions to diseases or problems facing society in the future.
Culture Component
- The protagonist, is an estimated 16 year old boy who does not remember anything about his life once entering the Glade.
Teresa -
The first girl to enter the Glade yet the last person too.
Alby -
The leader of the group

Chuck -
Thomas' first friend.
Newt -
Looked upon as a leader and answers most of Thomas' questions.
Minho -
A runner for the maze, teaches Thomas
Grievers -
Antagonist, creatures that only come out at night in the maze.
Creators/Wicked -
Antagonist, form of government that created the Glade and the maze.

The Maze Runner
An enclosed area called the Glade.
Point of View:
Thomas (First Person)
The government sends children to a place called the Glade with no recollection of their life before they entered except for their names. This is a government experiment in which they try to find out who is smartest and fittest to survive in the real world due to a fatal disease going on.


Wicked (World In Catastrophe: Killzone Experiment Department) is the experiment that the Creators put together. The Creators are the form of government. The Creators manipulate everything that goes on throughout the Glade.
Keepers are the leaders throughout the Glade. The Keeper of the Runners (Minho) is the "head runner" or leader of the Runners. They are suppose to
order throughout the Glade in their sections.
The Gladers are every other person in the Glade. They are the workers and follow the orders given to them by their Keeper.
The world that we know does not exist anymore. The Creators (government) have taken over and started performing the Wicked experiment on kids.
Chuck is the first person to become friends with Thomas and the last person to leave his side. Chuck is an estimated 12 year old boy who acts his age. He likes to mess around and is sometimes annoying towards Thomas. He knows his place in the Glade and does what he is told mostly because he is one of the youngest ones there. I admire Chuck because he would do anything for his friends, even step in front of a knife.
Evidence For:
Evidence Against:
My Conclusion:
I believe that technology will solve a lot of society's problems and cure many diseases but they will always be present. Human experimentation is not necessary.
Diseases that are still not cured:

- 22 spanish immigrants were test subjects in an experiment to prove that yellow fever was caused by mosquitoes.
U.S. Army pays for an experiment to find out effects of mind altering drugs. 320 inmates used.
Administration of Children's Services admits to performing experiments on kids in order to try to find a cure for AIDS.
Nazi defendants in Nuremberg Trials use some U.S. government experiments to justify their own.
National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) uses a robot to find cures to diseases.
Goes through 3 million tests a week which would take a human 12 years.
University of St. Andrews experiments with light technology.
Can see deeper into tissue which will help understand Alzheimer's and epilepsy more.
7,000 known diseases only 500 have treatments.

Technology will be able to solve most problems so experiments will not be needed.
