Marlow's experience down the river is rather a sureal one where reality gets so distorted by such strange cultures and interplays of different cultures that things seem visionary to him. For instance, his first sighting of the Clerk (Chief Accountant) dressed in an elegant suit takes him surprised and seems unreal. Another instance is that the doctor takes a measurement of his head and warns him to remain calm "out there."
