Ariana Lizarraga- Line Illuminator

 "There were great pieces of glass on the walls, but it was not glass, for when we looked upon it we saw our own bodies and all the things behind us, as on the face of a lake."  This line in particular really caught my attention because , it makes you wonder what Equality was thinking. Did he realize he was his own individual person, and not that the society claimed everyone to be the same and for one pre-assigned purpose. 

"If this is the great evil of being alone, then what is the good and what is the evil?" This line in part nine caught my attention because I thought it was a very philosophical question that makes you actually think for a moment on what the author is asking. In my opinion Equality has come to a moment of reflection, to a greater sense of understanding, but he is now feeling completely alone for the first time ever. This reminds me of the book of Genesis in the Bible, where Adam and Eve have eaten the apple that God strictly forbid them to eat; they suddenly feel all alone, and they discovered an evil inside them, much like Equality.
