Bureau of Visual Records

    Having won his game of chess, and Number 6 is congratulated for playing a fine game {nothing to do with the chess match} Number 14 suggests they go for a walk. During that walk he explains to Number 6 how to distinguish between the prisoners and the warders, its simple psychology, you judge by people’s attitudes.
   Might it be that Number 14 tried this once himself, and for some reason it failed, just like it will fail for Number 6? And yet Number 6 having been given the knowledge has to try for himself, otherwise he’s likely to see his own future in Number 14. Having been in The Village too long, and grown too old to escape!
   Just a minute! Wasn’t that what Rover did in ‘The Schizoid Man,’ it judged by Number 6‘s and Curtis’ attitudes towards it?


Be seeing you
