A scene selected from the book.
Near the end of the book, Felicity and Christopher are discussing the differences between the world he came from and the one he finds himself in. He is puzzled by the motivation of people who produce and share what they created without expecting money as payment in a world that no longer uses currency. Felicity explains that for a society of empathic individuals, those who can feel and experience the emotions of others around them, to create something and feel appreciation for what they've done feels good. Bringing joy into the lives of others is their motivation. By helping others and providing for one another with a mutual interest in our collective happiness, we as a society grow closer together.
“You’ve just proven the existence of time travel, and you’re already moving onto another project.” – Lynx
“We are a culmination of the lives of those who came before us, their accomplishments and failures, everything they have done has laid the groundwork for the world we are so blessed to live in.” – Felicity
Purpose of a Life
The concept for the novel is rooted in the idea that the author was struggling with, was his life important? Is anything he did with his life going to affect the world in any way? What legacy was he going to leave behind? Waht impact would he make on history if any?
There was a time in the author's life that he did what Christopher created, writing down a chain of ideas from time travel, to multiple dimensions of existence, to a theory concerning deciphering human behavior. It was just ideas spilling out onto paper/computer screen.
The idea of a man who was dying at a young age, who hadn't lived his life due to this long term health condition, somehow affecting the future in a way he would never realize made him wonder, what if?
At the time, the author was feeling lonely which led to a time travel romance... The original draft concluded when Felicity and Christopher vanished. The author stopped because the thought of tackling what the future was going to be like was too overwhelming. It was too much for him to handle, so he gave up up on the project.
It wasn't until many years later that he picked up the idea again and finished the first complete draft. Once complete, he realized it was too short and extended several scenes including the tree standing in the place of Christopher's home's location, the interaction with the deer, and an explanation of animals no longer being pets, but roommates.
“Every time your species set limitations for themselves, you consistently break free from those boundaries time and again.” – Lynx
Easter Eggs and Inspiration
Christopher and Felicity's son is named after a famous author. Herbert George is the H.G. in H.G. Wells, the author of the novel “The Time Machine”. Often what an author introduces to the world in the form of fiction becomes reality. That was my hope, that one day the utopia that Felicity comes from will become our reality.
“I’m empathic, not a mind reader, Christopher.” – Felicity
