Anthem -- Line Illuminator -- 9/10 -- Julia Jacob

While reading chapter 10 or the book Anthem, by Ayn Rand I came across a very interesting line that Equality 7-2521 describes a mirror without having any knowledge of what he is looking at. "There were great pieces of glass on the wall, but it was not glass, for when we look upon it we saw our own bodies and all the things behind us, as on the face of a lake." This is very interesting because since the society he lives in cannot have any form of individuals, or showing individuality, there were no mirrors available to the citizens. This is because everyone had to thing as a group, or "share" the same thoughts. No one could have their own accomplishments such as the light box.
