Later, Titus went over to Violet's house and they were chatting on the bed. Violet describes her desire for a normal life, noticing how it is like a sitcom. She also points out all of her memories from the year directly before she got the feed are gone. Titus's time at Violet's ends when Violet and her dad are attempting to negotiate price for the feed repair.
The section ends at Quendy's house. Quendy and Titus are discussing Violet, and we finally learn that the feed is directly attached to the brain.
The feed is attached to every part of their brain. The feed can control memories and emotions. The feed may control the characters rather than the characters controlling the feed.
"The next day, I was at her house. It was all weird. We didn't talk. I don't know why. We didn't open our mouths. We just sat there, silent, chatting" (Anderson 215).
The feed has become so common place, people don't even talk when sitting face to face.
Reread page 219: Is FeedTech responsible for paying for Violet’s medical bills? Keep in mind that Violet’s family was aware of the potential risks involved with implanting her feed so late. Explain who is responsible.
Violet and Titus sit next to each other but choose to chat instead
Mayan Temple, one of the places Violet wants to visit.
The section opens in a hospital.
Another quote/example demonstrating that Violet is part of the lower class. Interestingly, the feed is not considered medical despite being attached to every part of the brain.
Technology has greatly changed our communication. It has not only degraded our language to make the keyboard a convenience and slowly strangle the art of speech, but also changed the means of communications. This chapter has Titus and Violet sit face to face, but choose to communicate by the feed rather than talking with their mouths.
