The what? The Everything? On Oceanos at least, if you turn to a dictionary, you find this: '...Everything, the: a "everything" in the workaday sense of "all the things"; the world of physical objects and events in which we live. b "everything" in the more rarefied sense of "it all"; reality, the very fabric of existence, as a single undivided whole. c (principally scientific) space and time on the grand scale (see everythingology and everythingologist)...' This book is about all of these. Along the way, you'll discover the Freewheel Principle, Sky-Map Effect and Duckpondscope; there's a whole new school or style of art (Blockism) and of philosophy (Structured Nonsense and its brain-frying Hot Air Theory); you meet the Gigantic Space Cheese and Incredible Shrinking Man And Dog, Magnum Opus's awesome Monument and the great Bridge Between The Worlds. Ultimately, too, it's about you the reader: how the Everything relates to our own familiar world and why you're being told all this in the first place. And why are you being told all this? Well, the book's subject is reality itself - and gives you a glimpse into its true nature you'll never forget.
The Everything, which took shape over the best part of thirty years, is for anyone who likes philosophy, fiction (or, indeed, Structured Nonsense).
