Now that Chronicles of Eden Season II Act II has been released I feel now would be the best time to create a discussion I have been waiting to make for some time that being on the topic of Idealism vs Realism that has permeated through the series as a whole. First, I will give a brief description on what exactly idealism and realism are. An idealist is someone who practices forming or pursuing ideals due to being reality as humans know it to be fundamentally mental. This means that to the idealist how the world work depend on the perspective. In the case of Daniel Sorres he was an idealist before leaving Edgewood as to him he believed that monsters and humans could coexist peacefully, which at the time was more of an ideal as he lacked the proof. In that regard, before explaining the "was" part of my statement, lets take a moment to look at what makes up realism. The realist can be defined by "the attitude or practice of accepting a situation as it is and being prepared to deal with it accordingly" an attitude we saw often in places such as Edgewood, Ashwood, and Stonegate were they have accepted that there can be no coexistent. While what we learned at Stonegate may be considered contradictory keep in mind they hide because they believe that their unique community will not be accepted and even actively threatened due the reality of the situation. Yet, some of you may wonder what this has to do with Daniel Sorres well everything. Because along his journey he grows as he see more of the world to the point where he is both an idealist and a realist. This is due to the fact that he not only see the world as it is but is able to see it for what it could be. For that reason, by taking this into account the series puts forth that a more well rounded thinker can come from someone who can think as both an idealist and a realist as despite what other may think of Daniel he has been able to go above an beyond the expectations of other because he approaches the situation with both an idealistic and realistic mind set no matter the challenge.
However I would be interested to hear what the rest of you think about this?
