    Explanation

This suggests that the community values conformity and uniformity, and views strong emotions as a potential threat to their structured and controlled society.

Jonas is chosen to be the Receiver of Memory, and as he receives memories from the previous Receiver, he starts to see colors that were previously unknown to him and the rest of the community. This newfound ability to see color is a significant development in Jonas' journey and signifies his growing awareness and understanding of the world around him.
