He compares the feeling to a sled slowing down as it has to push against more and more snow that keeps building.


What memories of natural wonders does Jonas learn the community has given up in favor of sameness

The Giver compares it to an exhilarating sled ride, but eventually, the snow builds up and the sled can no longer move.

The giver compares the feeling of holding the memories of the world as a type of burden. He holds the memories and it caused him deep pain, at least sometimes. Maybe this is because he is troubled by the fact that no one else can understand him in this world, or how he maybe can't understand things yet with all this knowledge.
