Any of you who have read Flashback, The Hollow Man, or the Hardcase series knows Soul Dad. (I'm not spoiling anything, he's just kind of there .) Anyways, he seems to be in a lot of the Dan Simmons books that I've read. Does that mean these books all take place in the same universe? Or does it mean that Soul Dad exists in multiple realities at once and references his other existences? Or maybe he's like the electron that cannot decide whether to be a wave or a particle so is a particle in one reality then splits off a separate reality in which it is a wave. Except every time it's Soul Dad but somewhere (and somewhen) else.
I want to hear your weirdest theories on this.
(I swear I'm not nuts, I'm just bored.)
