"The street he was in ,did not lead up to the castle hill; it only made toward it and then, as if deliberately, turned aside, and though it did not lead away from the castle,
it led no nearer to it either."

Kafka

In Zamyatin's We, the protagonist, D-503, states that, "We is from God, I is from the Devil." (p129-130)

From Living Under the Bell Jar: Surveillance and Resistance in Yevgeny Zamyatin's We  :

While The One State’s mechanisms of power are substantial, ultimately its attempts to foreclose the possibility of resistance through surveillance fail. This failure stems from the fact that some numbers do come to recognize their individuality. A doctor provides this explanation for the development of individuality in D-503, ‘You are in a bad way! Apparently a soul has formed within you’ (95). The process through which this individuality is realized in D-503 is in many ways similar to Jacques Lacan’s theory of the mirror-stage.
