Join the enemy against ourselves? Is that despite ourselves, or to do with Number 1? It’s quite possible that Number 6 is not the only one struggling against Number 1, and not his Number 1, but one personal to each and everyone of us. The struggle within ourselves, one which not everyone can win. Cobb lost that struggle, and went off to meet his new master. Number 2 of ‘Chimes’ and ‘Once Upon A Time,’ finally admitted that what was so deplorable, was that he resisted for so short a time.
Number 6 has revolted. Resisted. Fought, Held fast. Maintained. Destroyed resistance. Overcome coercion. The right to be person. Someone individual. And there he sat in the chair of honour, on the throne it might be said. A man of steel, who had successfully vindicated the right of the individual to be individual, against himself. And as far as anyone can say, Number 6 was the first to do so. And in all probability his like would never be seen again!
