A Change of Mind
Number 6 is found to be disharmonious, and
eventually the Committee posts him as being unmutual. Warning him that should
there be any further complaints lodged against him, it will be necessary to
propose him for the treatment known as Instant Social Conversion. The isolation
of the aggressive frontal lobes of the brain, in other words a leucotomy. And
it is through such an operation that Number 6 would have had a change of mind,
but instead he is merely kept sedated.
And yet when it comes to a change of mind,
eventually Number 6 is able to turn the tables on Number 2, who with the help
of Number 86 is able to change the citizens’ minds about Number 2!
