In the modern-day colleges, the urge to garner educational experience bounds students. This makes them wrap up in a manner similar to mummies, with an effect of scoring any knowledge discovery opportunities that bypass them. As Percy affirms, they are ultimate ‘consumers of experience’ (63). The aim of their participation in college by taking up classes, writing papers and taking tests is to for mere college pursuing and the subsequent fruits of the college experience as opposed to the knowledge pursuit, ‘the creature’ (47) – as Percy depicts it. In other words, when a scholar attends a college it is not “the sovereign discovery of the thing before him. it is rather the measuring up, of the thing to the criterion of the preformed symbolic complex” (469). Intrinsically, the scholars ‘sovereignty’ is compromised, as he is not able to discover my will but rather by the system’s subjection.
