uncertainty, applied at macro scale, and extrapolated out to human social systems
multiple character perspectives
stories where disparate details are slowly revealed to be interconnected
There’s a thing Le Guin and Miéville both do where disparate details are slowly revealed to be inter-related. Characters from
one part of Earthsea will show up later in a new context. The details of the early half of Embassytown are slowly revealed
to form a coherent picture of what was going on. I wanted to do that with a ton of character perspectives and really
drive home the point about both human interconnectedness and the ability of what we notice to shape our reality.
