I'm allowed to lie, and allowed to ask rude questions?
Welcome new receiver of memory.
What is the receiver of memory?
Jonas assignment is receiver of the community. Jonas has the most honorable job among his community.
Now I will give you the memory of snow, sled, and runners.
Jonas is assigned different rules, and regulations to follow with his job as receiver. One rule is that the new receiver is allowed to lie.
We will pick Jonas as the receiver of memory
Jonas noticed somethings different about the givers home. A lock on the door, bookshelves, and a turn off switch for the speakers.
Maybe we can ride home together after work hours.
On the first day of training the giver transmits a memory to Jonas. The first memory is a memory of snow, and the thrill of sledding.
The community has no power to change any way of living, or changing others way of life in the community. The elders of the community want to keep the people of the community almost dumb to have complete control over them.
Jonas noticed some changes with objects, and people around him. The color red is a color not tolerated among his community. That color is what Jonas is starting to see.
