“How vast was a human being’s capacity for suffering. The only thing you could do was stand in awe of it. It wasn’t a question of survival at all. It was the fullness of it, how much could you hold, how much could you care.”
― Janet Fitch, White Oleander
If you don't mind, can you give us examples of things that have and have not been invented in the world of TB? Like, do they rely on candles for light? Are oil lamps already available? Do cities have plumbing of any sort or is it just wells? Do they print books, make paper, or utilize steam engines? I'm curious.
