Wellsconveys that the knowledge that we have are not using for good purpose it will resultsin our own destruction.
In this novel the knowledge means the scientific knowledgethat the protagonist has. Griffin, who enjoyed a high status as a scientist, ends uplosing his sanity because he does not use his invisibility good for humanity instead hecreates harm to the humans. Griffin had a passion for the science and experiments which made him invisible. With thatinvisibility he made maximum destructions to the people.
He becomes bothinvisible and dangerous to the people. He used his invisibility as a weapon for creatingproblems in that society. Science gifts Griffin with an unusual formula, but discussing itwith no one makes him fall in to sheer troubles and forces him to embrace totalisolation. For instance, if one discovers anythingamazing, one ough to share it with somebody who could reflect its pros and cons.
Griffinworked to enjoy the fun of invisibility, but refused to broadcast his knowledge with fellow scientists, which led him tocreate the Reign of Terror. The knowledge that he had gained through intenseresearch and observation was nullified because it eventually fell in to the wrong hands,i.e. Marvel’s hands. He may have marked his intellect, but reflected a total failurein dealing with his killing temptations.So, even if he is the protagonist of the story, we want to think of him more as anantagonist, finding pleasure in terrorizing people.
Thenovel’s central character Griffin, is a brilliant scientist who has carried outextremely successful experiments in physics andchemistry thereby making himself invisible right down to his innards and bloodvessels. Unfortunately, Griffin plunges in to hisexperiment without establishing the reversal of the invisibility process and without analyzing the future consequences of hisresearch on humankind. In connectionwith his experiment, he begins to consume drugs and medicines that make him quick-tempered and reckless. He shouts atpeople, is given to bouts of rage and a tendency to murder. His main motive behind becominginvisible is outright selfishness and he thinks nothing of carrying out aseries of unsocial acts to perpetrate his invisible state. His nasty temper and gruff waysmake people ragard him as an apparition, thereby making it difficult for him tofind a place for carrying out further research or even to procure food and clothing. Toprocure such necessities, Griffin goes off on arampage of lawlessness, starting out with stealing his father’s money, setting a fire a boarding house, gagging a costume house owner after kittinghimself, withoutconsidering the necessity of having to explain himself.
He even exploits his invisibility. His immature behavior consumes him andmakes his brilliance come to nought.
