Standing in front of the World Council wasn't at all nerve racking, until they announced Equality's life mandate, "-lips of the oldest did not move as they said: 'Street Sweeper.'" (Rand 26). Equality's neck grew tight for a second, then he just accepted it.
When Equality saw Liberty, he was astounded. He didn't the feeling he was feeling, because they didn't really have love. He saw her and described her every detail.
During an experiment with a frog Equality experienced something new. So he looked further into it and discovered electricity.
One day while both Liberty and Equality were working, they decided to stop and talk. Liberty offered Equality some water and he drank from her hands, but to them it was more than that.
After many attempts, Equality made what he calls a light box. He built this in his underground tunnel, and plans to show the World Council.
One night Equality lost track of time in his tunnel and was busted coming home late. The council asked him were he was, but he wouldn't tell. He was lashed until he passed out and was imprisoned for 30 days. He escaped so he could present his invention to the World Council.
