He's Coming Along Nicely!
Yes, but coming along nicely to what?
If you think the Prisoner had it bad, just look what they are doing to this chap!
But for the life of me I cannot figure out why they gave him the Prisoner's suit of clothes to wear!
He's sat in front of a small fountain of water behind a square of glass, and a small white ball balanced on the spout of water. The man is making a series of, well I don't know how to describe it really, but there he is wearing the Prisoner's suit of clothes! Why? One interpretation might be, that the man is halfway to being amended. He's already been conditioned, now wearing the Prisoner's suit of clothes, now he's having his voice trained, and all that remains is for the man himself to be amended, to look like the Prisoner! Of course he needs to grow some hair first, or perhaps he's going to be fitted with a toupee! But to what purpose? Well your guess or interpretation is as good as mine! It could be that they are getting ready to replace the Prisoner in the outside world, or at some point in the future...to face the Prisoner with himself! It's both inexplicable and surreal, and is completely unexplainable!
