What’s that Number 6 up to now? He is aware that the television set works two ways, that they watch him through the television. It appears that Number 6 places the cushion of the television screen to annoy the Observer, when he does there is the sound of electrical interference. Perhaps when Number 6 does that, the electrical screeching is the machine protesting at the possibility of suffocation!
On the other hand the electrical noise might well be quite deliberate, in order to stop citizens placing something in front of the television screens to stop them from being observed, or having to watch public announcements, such as Number 6’s electoral speech. Not to mention the Speedlearn educational programmes. After all who would be able to stick something in front of the television screen and be able to put up with that electronic noise for any length of time?
Be seeing you
