In an author's note Hurley also asks what happens if we change the pronuns. This then turns a fantasy into reality. Not so strange, or so very strange according to what your mind wants to accept or at least ponder about.

Read with a strange sort of feeling of satisfaction by me. Ha, what is sauce for the goose, is certainly sauce enough for the gander.
