Can The Invisible Man See?

 

H.G.Wells classic novel “The invisible man” may have inspired a lot of ideas in the new generation, but if we think deeper, the question should ariseCan an Invisible man see??. If one knows the details about optics and the laws of refraction, one can safely say that the invisible man will be blind and helpless.

In the novel “The Invisible Man”, H.G.Wells demonstrated with wit and logic that an invisible man acquires an almost unlimited amount of power. . He is able to enter any place unnoticed and steal anything with impunity. Elusive, thanks to invisibility; he successfully fights a whole crowd of armed people. Threatening to smite all those who are visible, the invisible man subjugated the population an entire town. Himself elusive and invulnerable, he strikes down all their opponents despite their every precaution. The invisible man is thus able to issue to the terrified population of his home town an order of the following content: “Port Burdock is no longer under the Queen, tell your Colonel of Police, and the rest of them; it is under me… this is a day one of year one of the new epoch- the Epoch of the Invisible man. I am invisible Man the First. To begin with, the rule will be easy. The first day there will be one execution for the sake of example- a man named Kemp. Death starts for him today. He may lock himself away, hide himself away, get guards about him, put on Armour if he likes- Death, the unseen Death, is coming. Let him take precautions- it will impress my people… death starts. Help him not, my people, lest death fall upon you also.”
