2. What are the main themes in Cloud Atlas?

Pip | 1352 comments I think I answered what I considered the main theme to be in the first question. However, in the final pages of Adam Ewing's journal he writes that the predatory world shall consume itself and he dedicates himself to the abolition of slavery, and although one life might be a drop in the ocean, what is an ocean but a multitude of drops? There is a glimmer of hope that the world might change because individuals become less cruel to each other.
