When Victor is 15, he witnesses a "most violent and terrible thunderstorm." In the storm, a "beautiful oak" is blasted by a lightning strike.
How does this experience influence Victor's scientific study?
It renews his faith in natural philosophy and the work of the alchemists.
It causes him to fight with his father about his future.
It pushes him to study harder and to keep his work secret.
It discourages his study of the work of Cornelius Agrippa, Albertus Magnus, and Paracelsus.
He feels compelled to record and recall every detail for future reference.
