I didn't read it as being from Tomas' time, it reads to me as being one of a sequence of dates from Ken's time. On page 136 he speaks of 2109 offering
'advice' on the 17th of May, p144 he get's a message from the sheriff on Sat 27th May, and then on page 145 it is the 28th May and Ken is driving on
It may be of no relevance at all, but then there are other seemingly deliberate errors such as the mislabeling of chapter 23 as Chapter 7.
I once read a modified version of the many worlds theory that stated that every possible outcome of every possible situation exists, but in a state of
superposition. The many worlds theory proposes that new universes are created whenever multiple outcomes are possible - a new universe for each
outcome, which could mean infinite numbers of universes. But the modified theory stated that all of these outcomes exist simultaneously, but in a
state of superposition. Time doesn't exist so all the possible outcomes in every situation exist simultaneously and always have. The conscious mind
navigates it's way through these possibilities, subconsciously choosing outcomes. Once the outcome has been observed then it ceases to be in a state
of superposition and becomes our perceived reality. Time is merely a construct.
I really like that theory, and it makes me wonder how differently each individual experiences reality. Are the other people that I meet in my life
experiencing the same outcomes that I observe them to experience in my perceived reality? Do we even exist as individuals or is the self an illusion?
Are we all the same conciousness exploring reality repeatedly in different ways?
