Expert Answers

Your syntax is a bit unclear. Wyndham has David so very disturbed by his aunt's death because this is a dramatic introduction for him to the Waknukian ideology that human deviations must be culled (killed) just like crop or cattle imperfections.

Wyndham makes the event so very disturbing to the reader so as to dramatize his point that blindly following biases, sacrosanct ideologies, and established paradigms of behavior will be the doom of the human race.
