On page 101, Prometheus realizes that "to be free, a man must be free of his brothers"...

What are some examples from Anthem that illustrate this point?

In Anthem, Prometheus and Gaea sin against society to become singular and understanding much like Adam and Eve’s sin against God when they ate the fruit of the tree of knowledge to gain wisdom; as a result, they can be compared to each other by their desire for learning and by their damnation. In Anthem, Prometheus and Gaea are told that they have everything that they will ever need or desire by the council. They are forbidden to gain knowledge that is not permitted by the council but only to do as they are told.In order to see truth (the truth in knowledge) they must separate themselves from the status-quo, their brothers.
