The Circular Ruins.


, in fact, is being referred to as a labyrinth which keeps man traveling and wandering in search of immortality with the false understanding that he can achieve anything like immortality by creating another like himself. The labyrinth in this story also contains in it the idea of circular time, that is, the mythical travel of time, a never-ending cycle, in addition to the confusion between real and fiction. The wizard was worried that his son would finally discover that he was not real and a mere perception of somebody’s dreams. But, in the end, the wizard found, much to his embarrassment, that he was himself a perception of somebody else’s thoughts. He, in fact, wanted to create a human being greater than himself but discovered the truth that he could not give his creation anything better than what he had been given by his dreamer. This is the whole concept of labyrinth, that is, every creation in this world goes back to its origin and always ends in the same way. We are all like our parents and finally like Adam. Everyone of us has to go through the same circumstances which our parents and their parents have gone through, and our offspring will also have to go through the same pattern of life – being born, growing up, achieving happiness and sorrows, love and hatred, and finally death. The vicious cycle of life has the same beginning and the same end for everybody.
