Jonas has been selected to be our next Receiver of Memory.
The Chief Elder acknowledges that it seems that she has skipped Jonas. She asks for the community to accept her apology and she invites Jonas onto the stage.
She announces that Jonas has been selected to be the next Receiver, which is a selection that is very rarely made. She also explains how they failed in their last selection of the Receiver.
But sometimes I see something. And maybe it's beyond.
She elaborates how important the job of the Receiver is, and how the Receiver is separate from the other assignments. She then starts to describe the necessary attributes required for the Receiver.
Jonas. Jonas. Jonas. JONAS. JONAS. JONAS.
In the middle of the explanation, the Chief Elder conveys to Jonas how in his job he has to go through unimaginable pain. Jonas immediately feels disheartened while she continues to describe the attributes.
Jonas felt like giving up, but he takes a look onto the crowd and finds that the change that happened with the apple now happened to the crowd. He briefly told the Chief Elder about the strange changes he sees.
The crowd does the name chant that shows the community's acceptance towards Jonas. While Jonas is still filled with uncertainty, he shows feelings of appreciation towards this gesture.
