“In other words, it’s a common theme in my writing that a dark-haired girl shows up at the door of the protagonist, and tells him that his world is delusional, that there is something false about it. Well, this did finally happen to me.”

We suddenly run out of the room, but the energy/force fills the house…warping time & possibly reality. As we try to leave the house, we see other “versions” of ourselves run through the house; these are possibly versions of us from slightly earlier (or later) in time.
