1: Introduction: In this illustrated and digital book I will talk to you about an invention I created to defy life. Also introduce a little to the Frankenstein novel.
3: Gothic Fiction | Gothic fiction: (sometimes referred to as Gothic horror) is a genre of literature that combines elements of both horror and romance. As a genre, it is generally believed to have been invented by the English author Horace Walpole, with his 1764 novel The Castle of Otranto.
4: Mary Shelley | Mary Shelley was born in London, the year 1797. She is daughter of William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft, who were two writers. Her mother died when she was ten days old. She was encouraged to be a writer by her father. In 1816 she married Percy Shelley, they lived in Italy until his death in 1822.
5: During their marriage they had a journey where Mary was inspired to write a story. The idea for Frankenstein came to her when she was staying on Lake Geneva, and she was forced to write a story of ghosts. Mary now had the main idea of her story and finished the novel in the spring of the year 1817. Later she published it on January, 1818. She wrote several other novels and contributed to the Westminster Review. After her housband death, Mary left Italy and decided to devote to her son providing him education and full love. She died in February 1851. She was 54 years old.
6: "Birthmachine" | This experiment contradicts life fully. It is about how babies are born. It contradicts life because now a machine is the one that gives birth to people. In the daily life mothers are used to give birth to the babies and in this experiment is a machine the one that gives birth.
7: This is the birthmachine. It has a programmer in which you can program it how many times a day do you want a baby to be born. Twins can not be born in this machine. This is another way it contradicts life because this does not give birth to twins so in life there would not be twins neither triplets or more. In this way, families choose the amount of babies they want and the time gap between them. This another thing why this machine defy life.
8: If I had super powers... I think that if I had super powers it would be great. It can be a great experience maybe for me to fly, climb all over mountains, and lots of more super powers you can have and experience new things.
9: If I had the opportunity to choose a super power I would choose one to fly, another to fix all broken things and another one to freeze people.
10: If I had super powers I would use them to help Mexico. I could help Mexico by freezing all the bad people that are making crimes. I would like to fly and learn new experiences. Also fix all broken things.
11: Possibilities... In the world nothing is impossible but I am really sure I would never have the opportunity to obtain super powers. To help Mexico can be possible with the help of all of us.
