So Equality 7-2521 ran away into the Uncharted Forest where he found Liberty 5-3000, together they found a house in the forest and established there, then Equality 7-2521 found books in the house and by reading books he rediscovers a great lost word "I". Equality 7-2521 had violated the rule of his culture and fell in love with Liberty 5-3000. Equality 7-2521 had learned about the ideas, values and feelings of a person and found the importance on a human individuality. Equality 7-2521 and Liberty 5-3000 took the names Prometheus and Gaea. They found a home and Prometheus vowed that he would keep it just for them and not to share with anyone else, so he built a electric fence to keep others away.In Equality's world, individuality had disappeared and everything was "we" and "our" instead of "I" and "my". Equality 7-2521 lived in a collective society that anyone can't do the thing as their own desire, all the activities was in groups. People by not knowing their own individuality rights they used the words "we" and "our". Individualism in every person is very important because each living thing has their own values, ideas and feelings and I belive the story is a reminder that as humans we should not forget our own individual worth.
