"Having the knowledge that all characters are still present in the story, gives me ambivalence as to what I should [do] for them. This division led them from one "I;" developing their beings and becoming more independent, but it also made them more intertwined by the choices they made, drawing them together again. Yes, your choices have affected the outcome of the story, [not] by its letters, but by its meaning.What do you believe?"
- The Author, Chapter VII "Eye"
“I celebrate myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.”
-Song of Myself, Walt Whitman
