I wonder what made the man decide to let the indian man be for a short time, and what made the higher  order decide to violate a man's tradition. Why did the man decide to carry his own sons bones knowing that what he did was against the rules. These questions are the reason why i would like to continue research into Psychology and find out why people act and react the way they do.
