The theme of ﬂying was included as just one element of a much broader concept that Murray called ascensionism. Murray’s full deﬁnition is worth our consideration: [Ascensionism] is the name I have given to the wish to overcome gravity, to stand erect, to grow tall, to dance on tiptoe, to walk on water, to leap or swing in the air, to climb, to rise, to ﬂy, to ﬂoat down gradually from on high and land without injury, not to speak of rising from the dead and ascending to heaven. There are also emotional and ideational forms of ascensionism—passionate enthusiasm, rapid elevations of conﬁdence, ﬂights of imagination, exultation, inﬂation of spirits, ecstatic mystical up-reachings, poetical and religious— which are likely to be expressed in the imagery of physical ascensionism.
Grope was a reclusive undergraduate student at the time he was studied, a person whose presence on campus was barely noticed. He was a quiet young man; shy, apathetic, uninvolved, and uninspired. He never dated and belonged to no clubs or organizations. His social life was restricted to late night card games, bridge mostly, with a few regulars from his dorm. Studying was seldom on his agenda; books would be opened only when the pressure was on to obtain minimally passing marks in his courses. There was nothing at all about his inconspicuous outward appearance to indicate that his private life was ﬁlled with spectacular imaginary shows of personal heroism.
