I Am Not A Number I Am A Person!

    Aren’t we all! After all we’ve all been pushed, filed, stamped, briefed, debriefed, and numbered at one time or another, and more often than not. Having a number doesn’t stop someone from being a person, number or not you are still you. After all they only took Number 6’s name away {not that he had one in the first place} not his identity, his personality, although they did try that once, but to no avail. Let’s not forget Number 6 wasn’t all that keen on using his own name himself, even when he had the chance to use it he had to think up some pseudonym instead. Peter Smith indeed! And don’t forget the Prisoner was known by a number during his former employment, ZM73, in fact during ‘Do Not Forsake Me Oh My darling’ when he was given the opportunity to use his name then he preferred to use his code name! And didn’t he sign a message to XO4 D6? As for The Village, basically it’s a prison, and in prisons Prisoners are given numbers, and more often than not they are known more by that number than a name, certainly for official purposes they are. As for Number 6 he’s a troublemaker, Number 12 knew that, and when not attempting to escape Number 6 likes nothing more than going about poking his nose in where it’s not wanted, and generally causing trouble. The man’s a goat!

Be seeing you
