God's voice speaks to A.
Having left religion, his home and his family, A. reflects on how good a person he is. A. is torn between memories from his religious past and his body's physiological and spiritual needs.
God follows the new heretic around. He tells him, not without compassion, what to expect in his secular ways.
But A. defies God. Without Providence, his life is subjected to randomness, poverty and irascible violence.
A. reverts to sleep, and in sleep retreats to memories - a hidden place in his consciousness, where he can find an authenticity to hang on to among the skeptical, busy masses. Sleep leads to blindness.
