Numbness centres on Freddie making horseradish sauce while his computer reads to him aloud about the End of Civilization.
The chemical impact of grating horseradish draws out tears that re-trigger emotions he first felt when reading this sort of climate crisis literature a few years ago. He is implicated himself as he grates away - a ridiculous sight which is tempered through the mechanical computer voice telling us “if you are not scared then there must be something wrong with you”.
