The aware room. The end of the first paragraph of The Crying of Lot 49. ‘The room’ here referring to the combination of a space and its boundaries, not other occupants of the space (as would be the case when saying “the whole room looked at me”), for Oedipa is the only person present.

That only made her laugh, out loud and helpless: You’re so sick, Oedipa, she told herself, or the room, which knew.
