Cool and freaky concept. I would guess that it would push people away, like it did whenever they "failed" the tests. Not sure though, since the thing is moving.

"You go on ahead Eye. I'll stay behind and have a little 'talk' with Miss Kitty."  ;D

I think she figured out what's up.

why are they running from her? Maytag trusted her for a while, its not clearly explained why she doesn't any more
there are two ways to be a patriot. the first is to join the military. the second is to convince the government that use of military force is unnecessary. the second is much more difficult but also more rewarding.

Yeah, I'm wondering myself... and Maytag is helping these two for what reason?  Sure I understand, helping Eye get some freedom from the 'Eyeless-Cat'... but why is she trying to avoid Lehm's folks?  She's got a large reward awaiting her... and the only one she needs worry about is "crazy eyes" girl.  Though... with Eye with her.. escape from Lehm and his folks is practically Guaranteed... but I think the Sorceress woke up and just cast a spell!

It's vaguely pointed out by Miss Kitty (CS3) that when she wakes up she will not be able to defend them. That is, when people are totally swallowed by despair, they have a tendency to become violent.

I think I saw a graph at one point that may have had something to do with Maslow's needs, but it talked instead about fear and despair caused if these needs are systematically stripped away. When a person hasn't love/belonging, they begin to feel distant and afraid. When they haven't safety, they start to be paranoid and become prone to pain, when even they basic physiological needs are stripped, they go into despair, and out from it they sometimes become violent.
