Excerpt from The Society from the “The Age of Wire and String” by Ben Marcus

Wire, the:
The only element that is attached, affixed, or otherwise in contact with every other element, object, item, person, or member of the society. It is gray and often golden and glimmers in the morning. Members polish it simply by moving forward or backward or resting in place. The wire is the shortest distance between two bodies. It may be followed to any area or person one desires. It contains on its surface the shredded residue of hands – from members that pulled too hard, held on too long, got there too fast.
