    The sheep represent the herd mentality. They move as a group, and are indistinguishable in terms of the lives they lead. Their existence is banal, concerned only with the subsistence of living. They have no consciousness of the pursuit of their Personal Legend. They choose not to engage in such a quest. They do not follow an inner voice. Santiago understands that his being is fundamentally different than the sheep
