I need some assistance with these assignment. the uniformity concept in we by yevgeny zamyatin Thank you in advance for the help! The numbers were equal in the way the State treated them and equal in the manner of their behaviors and thoughts. In this respect, the faces of the numbers when they walked abreast in fours also displayed uniformity because “our faces are unclouded by the insanity of thoughts” (Zamyatin, 7). The numbers did not have a wave or stream of thought that was different from one another. This is because. the State was a State where all personal thoughts and emotions were not allowed. Uniformity is an important aspect of this book since it underlines every bit of the habit and behavior of the inhabitants of the State. The Benefactor, who was the leader of the State, required that all the Numbers should wear uniforms, walk-in uniformity, think and feel in uniformity since uniformity was the basis of sustaining unity within the State.  .
Therefore, the numbers who dared to show a stream of thoughts, feelings, or emotions that depicted some aspects of individualism had to go through a surgery to remove the brain’s part responsible for such emotions. The numbers were supposed to regulate their emotions to be in line with the prescribed uniform standard of emotions for everyone in the State. The influence of Number I-330 on the life of Number D-503 did not go unnoticed (Zamyatin, 84). Number I-330 had already developed rebellious tendencies, emotions, and thoughts that were inspired by her association with the rebel group, Memphis, and the same had been passed on to Number D-503 gradually.
.Also, Number D-503 had started to develop affection feelings for Number I-330, prompting his inspection, whose results were given by the doctor as. “‘l deem it my duty to testify that Number D-503 is ill and is unable to regulate his emotions” (Zamyatin, 120). The Numbers in the State were not supposed to have a brain or a soul that would result in each number thinking or generating personal feelings or thoughts. Thus, once it was noticed that a Number was having such a brain or soul, then removal was the only option. Number D-503, the protagonist in this book, faced the situation when the influence of I-330 was discovered to be interfering with his though and feelings process.
