A Prisoner of Himself!

  The Prisoner isn’t a prisoner of The Village, he is a prisoner of himself! The Village is nothing but a figment of his imagination, taking place on a level deep in his subconscious. Perhaps on several levels, depending on the depth of the subconscious. The mind makes its own places, I know, I’ve been there, and so I should think have a good many people reading this
    The Prisoner perhaps having become disillusioned with the type of work he did, or for whatever reason, decided that he had had enough, he handed in his letter of resignation. And yet he remained loyal, he refused to give the reason behind his resignation. But at the same time suffered from an anguish pattern {suggested by the doctor-Number 14} reliving the moment he handed in his letter of resignation, over and over again in his mind, but projected onto a screen so that it could be seen.
    It is possible that Number 14, the chess champion realised something, as he did say that sometimes we join the enemy against ourselves. That “against ourselves” seems significant in some way. Is that what Number 6 was suffering from, the struggle within himself, for fear of joining the enemy, against himself? And is what we see on the television screen the internal battle between himself and his inner self.

Be seeing you
