At each level, only two people with no relationship between them can live together. Without knowing anything about the exterior world, this individuals do not know how many levels there are, although their position in them could change and improve or worsen their standard of living, since their daily food depends on a platform that descends the different levels with the same food. Thus, the unwanted remains of some are the food of others. Danger lurks and they may not survive The Platform if those on the higher platforms overthink their position or whether those on the lower levels do not have enough guts to remain.
