I just wanted to comment on the time-space things that bothered me in Midnight Robber. I thought it was interesting how the two parallel worlds developed to be entirely the same, except in one, the humans colonized, and in the other, they didn't. It implies to me that there is something about humans which makes them extra-temporal. Somehow, everything but humans are constrained to carry out the same rolls in these two separate universes. To me, it implies that there is a physical and tangible aspect to human free-will. Does this work into the other theme of nanny granny taking playing with human free-will?
