Montag's destination was to see the world the way it really is and to let the world touch him deeply inside.


On page 162 -163Montag says " We'll just start walking today and see the world the and way the world walks around and talks the way it really looks. ... and will while none of it will be me when it goes in after a while it'll all gather together inside and it'll be me.

The world of the city was all illusion nothing was real. Nothing was allowed to really touch a person deeply. People were suppose to be happy a surface happiness.

Captain Beatty explains this on pages 59-62 " page 61 If you don't want a man unhappy politically don't give him too sides to a question to worry him better yet give him none. "
page 61 -62" The important thing for you to remember Montag is we're the Happiness Boys ..... We stand against the small tide of those who want to make everyone unhappy with conflicting theory and thought. ... I don't think you realize how important you are we are to our happy world as it stands now.

Montage wanted the world to actually touch him to change him. He was angry at the superficiality of the illusion of the city world with its wall theaters and lack of thoughts and reality. There is a lesson in this for us, to think deeply look at all sides of a question and allow God and life to change us.
