More specifically, in the section “The Grid”, the lights on cars and buildings, the people moving in patterns, and the signs represent symbols of a rushed, chaotic life and ungratefulness of nature.

The other kitchen workers and chefs are still picking up myriads of dining plates and eating utensils, which I’ll still have to clean when I return. “Here take this and walk beside me to make sure all our guests made it to their rooms safely.”
