Lord of the Flies

What does Henry begin to do with/to the "tiny transparencies" (jellyfish) that are scavenging on the beach, and how does this make him feel? What does Golding seem to be implying about the boys and their situation in this passage?

Henry is one of the smallest boys on the island. He enjoys imposing his will over the tiny jellyfish. Golding is illustrating the basic human desire to control and cause harm to other living things.
