While walking with Castle to breakfast, Burris thinks about Castle's unwavering attitude toward Walden Two and Frazier. After having breakfast and going to the Work Desk with the others, Burris joins Frazier in his work duty at the machine shop. Burris confesses his admiration for Frazier and his accomplishment with Walden Two. Frazier demurs by discussing all that remains to be done in terms of the science of behavior. All of Frazier's comments in this chapter imply Walden Two is an incubator for a larger, more evolved social structure, of which he may not even be a part.
Burris is clearly impressed with the community, though not quite enough to join. In his view it is a success and a marvel of the scientific method of behavior modification, which appears to be the case. Frazier's caveat is much more needs to be done before a substantial breakthrough is made. For instance, he stresses there is still the need to understand what instills certain abilities in a person, like math or music, which are currently left to chance or heredity. He feels these qualities can be "generated" in one's youth. He refers to the goal of a "Superorganism" that will connect one person to another in a holistic manner. This will allow for better group dynamics because everyone would share similar purposes and desires.
Frazier clearly desires to micromanage human behavior right down to specific abilities. This implies an interest above and beyond a cohesive, functioning community. It is evidence of his unbridled desire to create a person in his own image.
