The Last Flight of Doctor Ain.

when i first read this story i was confused but got the main idea of the text. i understood Ain was the "man" and the bad guy and the naked woman was "mother earth". and Ain was watching her die and letting it happened and moving on with his life of traveling. then i read the story again and realized two other big parts the fact he has the flu and that's how he is killed but also his speech and if he was such a good debater and a fiery arguer. then he goes off on the deep end talking about this virus that is mutation of the leukemia virus and tells them about the effects and how no primate or accidentally exposed human has survived beyond the 22nd day. so i really don't know what the deal is I'm as confused as the Adam riddle.

i wouldn't know how to stop a Dr. ain i think he would be a sneaky guy that wouldn't tell anyone what he was up to till the point and time in witch it was beneficial to himself and then he would let you know who he was and what he was exactly doing but till then no one would know and he would end up taking over the world and running everything. but this is where I'm confused is he dies and that's the end of the story and they don't talk about the naked girl so i just don't get this one.

I didn't get it either. But maybe there isn't much to get. Just because it is the first published work of the authors and people say its great doesn't mean its any deeper than that.
