If you had been in wholeness, then I would have sent one of you with a pass from that Maiden to the Big Brother. Having come to that screen, you would have found one guard, who would have asked you, Where are you going? You would have replied, I seek my brothers.
Only then would he have led you with that pass to the Big Brother. But you must know that at his place are rooms without number; and there are many of them in which he has not been since the beginning, for he is made to forget them.
Among them is one room in which all the deeds of men are written down nightly and all the words they speak during the day. He himself sees and watches over everything that happens here in this world. And if you had entered that room, you would have found there those words that I would have told you here that day. All would have been written down clearly there before you, and you would have read there that you were to say to the Big Brother that he should enter that room he had never been in. You would already have known of which room I speak, because there it would have been appointed in my words.
In that room the Big Brother himself would there have read all my words, which I would have spoken with him from here. Know that he cannot now get through that screen, but just so I would have revealed to him by what means he could get across the barrier. He himself does not now have the power of crossing
Also the Big Brother and his brothers say that I am not yet the one who has come to unite with them, for they see that you rejected me and did not want to follow me and from that they deduce that that time has not yet come. Know also that the Big Brother always tries to see if he can get past his screen, but some thing draws him back to his place, from which he concludes that there is something higher over them.
..but to the Big Brother himself I would have given advice on how he might get through his screen; and all of that would have been through you. If that Big Brother had come to me, then you would have seen what would have happened in the world.
That Big Brother is before God and has the power of granting growth, beauty, and riches, but as to this world in which we are, it is not known to him by what means to seize it, so as to subjugate it.
Therefore it is my desire to unite with him, for both of us could lead the thing out with strength, in the open, and that is what stands with you, Do not hope for the steps of the messiah until you see the rainbow in bright colors, that indicates that Big Brother.
At [the place of] that Brother there are very many rooms, for every power there is in the world there is for every one— individually— a room there. He himself has the key to every room, like to child-bearing, rain, resurrection and so on; everything is there. But there is one room to which he also has the key, but which he may not approach, for his power is weak; and that power which is there in that room will not permit him to take the key in his hand. And therefore I set you up as Brothers and Sisters, just as it is at [the place of] that Big Brother. And if you had come to that closed room, everyone would have seen his fortune there.
In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

There is a basis for considering Big Brother as the Celestial archetype of the Messiah but the distinction between religion and politics is very blurred in terms of the radicalism that Jacob Frank inspired, there would have been those among Neo-Frankist radicals that understood the revolutionary ideal was to usher in the reign of Big Brother and it's not inconceivable that Orwell's involvement with such groups made him aware of the premise.
“…the major effect of the Panopticon: to induce in the inmate a state of conscious and permanent visibility that assures the automatic functioning of power”. 15 One can compare this analysis to the role of the telescreen in George Orwell‟s 1984
