Escape from Darkenfloxx

Mutual recognition is something I really thought about throughout the reading. Between the scientists and the inmates, I feel as if no mutual recognition was actually given, and by holding the inmates accountable to their past is what brings the scientists so much additional power. In the story, when Heather is drugged which Darkenfloxx, she passes due to an unbelievably high dosage. While Jeff is crying after having to watch Heather fight death, while Abnesti doesn’t even seem phased. Abnesti responds to Jeff’s reaction of the incident saying “Look, Jeff, these things happen. This is science” (35). This portrays that the inmates actually have no value to Abnesti besides collective data, showing that he is not giving mutual recognition to the inmates.
