Plot Summary Edit
Aaron is working at a sweatshop-like job that involves repeating potential Names of God that are presented to him by a computer. He is taken aside and fined for speaking the Wakening Name instead of using a scroll wheel. After speaking the last Name he would be presented for the day, he says "Meh, meh, meh, meh, meh, meh," which combined with the syllables he was presented by the computer to make the Vital Name. He telepathically shares that he made a discovery with Ana, and heads home.
