Plot: Goreng awakens in a concrete cell with the number 48 written on it. Trimagasi, his cellmate, says that they are in a “Vertical Self-Management Center,” also known as “The Pit,” a tower-style facility where food is provided on a platform that travels from the top-down, stopping for a set period of time on each floor. People on lower levels can only eat what others on higher levels leave and are killed if they keep the food. Every month, people are randomly allocated to a new level.
Goreng chose a copy of Don Quixote, and Trimagasi a self-sharpening knife, as each inhabitant is permitted to bring in one thing. Trimagasi reveals that when he and his old cellmate were assigned to level 132, they cannibalized a prisoner who had fallen down the shaft. Miharu, a bleeding woman, rides down the platform one day. Trimagasi explains that every month she descends the hole in quest of her child. To be Continued…
