We shall change her name from Liberty 5-3000 to "the Golden One."
You're beautiful, Liberty.
Nor do I want you to be my sister.
I don't want you to be my brother.
Equality was making his daily routine of sweeping the streets of the farmland when he came across a beautiful woman. He saw she was physically beautiful, tall, and blonde with a hard face and an unafraid expression. Equality felt an immediate connection with her.
I'm singing because I'm happy.
Don't ever sing again! Your brothers will make you happy and that is final.
Liberty sees him on the road the next day, so she goes over to the hedges where he is working. They do not speak to one another but gesture so each recognizes the other. As you can see, Equality renames Liberty to "the Golden One" because of her golden hair and stern personality.
After several days, they finally speak to each other. The following day, while Liberty and Equality are looking at each other, Equality thinks about the City Palace of Mating when looking at Liberty. Though she's only seventeen, Equality does not want her to go. The thought alone makes Equality very angry and Liberty looks at him and smiles, "in the wisdom of woman" she understands him.
At dinner, Equality is reprimanded for singing out of joy. He tells the reprimanding Council Member that he is happy and that is why he sings. The Council Member tells him that he should be happy since he lives among his brothers.
Equality started dreaming about the Unmentionable Times and the Uncharted Forest, which has overgrown over the old cities. He thinks about the Evil Ones, who lived back in the Unmentionable Times. He ponders what they thought and wrote about, whom only those of the House of the Useless seem to remember.
In the tunnel, Equality feels most at peace and therefore, he feels happy and calm. He meditates on the meaning of happiness and the fact that it is forbidden to be unhappy. Equality concludes that his brothers are not happy because they are afraid.
