Does Patrick Sylvester's essay really exist?


Recommended Posts

 My cuestión is:

Was Patrick Sylvester from Ghost in the Shell S.A.C 2nd gig a real person?

I've looked everywhere for the essay and can't find it. I only managed to find the "index".

1. the Rise of the Third estate

2. Breaking free from Domination

3. a Farewell to Kings

4. Aspiring towards Socialism

Do you know if it really existed or was it invented?

Sorry for my English. It's not my first language.

Not as such.  "Patrick Sylvester" is a fictionalised version of Yukio Mishima.  Google him.

That's fascinating, I didn't realize that there was this connection between him and Ghost in the Shell. The infection of the Individual Eleven virus through an essay and its effects is very similar to the plot of Mishima's Runaway Horses, and of course, the author's own actions.
