Ahh. This one has many, many self- metaphors running through it.. too many to mention. What i will say is that a common idea of mine is the significance of the skeleton- not a symbol of death but an icon of purpose, of stature, your innermost. And as we all know, its the innermost of someone that is the most shocking. How it links to this?? Just look at what he's gained, what he's lost--from the search for himself. He has Failed at being Human.
