The connection the characters have to each other is one that illustrates that society is full of adult-sized children who are afraid of the incomprehensibilities of life that the found incomprehensible in childhood and still find incomprehensible in adulthood. Thompson brutally paints society (without civilization) as a fearful punishing place. Some incomprehensibles that remain as we grow bigger and then older are fear of death, fear of the outsider, fear of being alone.
