It is Ralph who realizes that "The world, that understandable and lawful world, was slipping away." Ralph's realization can be found in chapter five and on page eighty-two depending on the edition you're using. This quote is significant because Ralph is coming to realize that the order, customs, and civilized life is slowly being replaced by something wilder, feral, and more chaotic.
