In the bible there is a famous story where Christ turned ordinary water into wine. This shows up in Fahrenheightwith Montag and Faber. Faber descries montage as being fire and Faber is the water and the two combined will be wine. “he would be Montag-plus Faber, fire plus water, and then one day after everything had mixed and simmered and worked away in silence, there would be neither fire nor water but wine.”
Lastly , at the end of the book there is a direct reference to the tree of life. “And on either side of the river was there a tree of life… and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of nations.” in the bible this tree of life bears the fruit that will cure the nations. The way I see it these men with the books in their head are the fruits that will cure the nation.
